On Black Friday, November 24, 2017, I ordered a canvas print of “Take a Seat Iceland”.
Image Size: 24.00″ x 36.00″
Total Size: 24.00″ x 36.00″
Print Material: Glossy Finish Canvas
Finishing: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas Print – 1.5″ Stretcher Bars – Back Stapled – Mirrored Image Sides
On the following Monday I received an email notification that the print had shipped, all 11 pound of it, with tracking numbers. It is scheduled to arrive on Thursday via UPS.
Take a Seat is a fine art photograph of a white wooden chair with two hearts sitting in the middle of nowhere overlooking an amazing vast valley in Iceland.
On Friday, one week from placing the order, my neighbor called to say he had a package from UPS that was mine. Turned out it was my print!
The canvas print was carefully packaged in a cardboard box with an inner cardboard protective layer and wrapped in plastic. It took a little while to get the print out of the protective wrappings but was soon hung over my fireplace.
The Quotable Westie
Supermodel “Tiki the Westie” stars as photographer Edward M. Fielding’s inspirational muse for this series of dog photographs. Tiki takes on multiple personas including old Broadway actors, Aladdin as in One Thousand and One Nights and Jack Nicholson in The Last Detail.
Accompanying quotes from writers, comedians and other notable humans round out the photographs and includes this tongue in cheek gem from Jerry Spinelli: “People who dress up their pets to look like Little Lord Fauntleroys or cowboys, clowns, ballerinas.
As if it’s not enough just to be a dog or cat or turtle.” Tiki does indeed appear as a clown, Little Lord Fauntleroy and a balleriana but Fielding and Tiki seem to know that its enough just to be a dog but they obviously have a lot of fun together dreaming up new characters to play.

Fine Art Photographs of Cows – I recently found myself in Stowe, Vermont for a rainy afternoon. My wife had a conference at the Spruce Lodge and I had the afternoon free. Fall foliage had already come and gone with the last leaves being ripped off by a breezy, stormy day. But I was determined to get out and photograph the beautiful country side around Stowe which includes many fine family farms.
I came across a herd of dairy cows gathering near the farm gate, hoping that it was getting close to milking time. One cow in particular caught my eye and I was able to capture a few nice portraits.
Managing to keep my gear dry and shooting wide open in the dark and gloomy late afternoon cloudy sky, I manage to capture this sweet face in the pasture.
This is a Jersey cow or cattle are a small breed of dairy cattle. Originally bred in the Channel Island of Jersey, the breed is popular for the high butterfat content of its milk and the lower maintenance costs attending its lower body-weight, as well as its genial disposition.
They look a lot different than the type of cow typically raised for beef such as this fine fellow below seen on a small micro farm in Etna, New Hampshire.
These cow portraits in black and white can be found in the extensive portfolios of fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding. Fine art photographs of cows and farms in New England are available as prints, museum quality framed art, canvas prints, wood prints and more as well as on products such as tote bags and decor items such as throw pillows.

Airstream is an American brand of Travel trailers (“caravans” in British English) which are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded and polished aluminum coachwork. This body shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus, who had earlier overseen construction of Charles Lindbergh’s aircraft, the Spirit of St. Louis.
Airstream trailers and recreational vehicles are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio, USA. The company, now a division of Thor Industries, employs more than 800 people, and is the oldest in the industry.
Meet one of my neighbors! I managed to get this great shot of a beautiful cow when it came over to investigate my little westie dog Tiki. Tiki thinks cows and deer and just about anything with four legs is a big dog that needs to be barked at but these gentle cows just liked to come over and investigate.

Low-key lighting is a style of lighting for photography, film or television. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. Traditional photographic lighting, three-point lighting uses a key light, a fill light, and a back light for illumination. Low-key lighting often uses only one key light, optionally controlled with a fill light or a simple reflector.
Low key light accentuates the contours of the subject by throwing areas into shade while a fill light or reflector may illuminate the shadow areas to control contrast. The relative strength of key-to-fill, known as the lighting ratio, can be measured using a light meter. Low key lighting has a higher lighting ratio, e.g., 8:1, than high-key lighting, which can approach 1:1.
The term “low key” is used in cinematography and photography to refer to any scene with a high lighting ratio, especially if there is a predominance of shadowy areas. It tends to heighten the sense of alienation felt by the viewer, hence is commonly used in film noir and horror genres.
In film, low-key lighting is associated with German Expressionism and later film noir.
Examples of low key black and white photography by fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding
Artists recognized the power of low key lighting long before photographers came around. Painters during the Renaissance and Baroque periods often used a technique known as “chiaroscuro” to achieve a similar dramatic tone for their images. Chiaroscuro comes from the Italian “chiaro” meaning clear/light and “oscuro” meaning obscure/dark.
Chiaroscuro was used not only for drama but also to bring realism to a painting. The varied lighting creates a sense of three dimensional depth that can be quite stunning.
Dark deep shadows and bright highlights require careful lighting techniques, exposure and intense post processing skills to achieve the dramatic look of low key photography.

The concept of a typewriter dates back at least to 1714, when Englishman Henry Mill filed a vaguely-worded patent for “an artificial machine or method for the impressing or transcribing of letters singly or progressively one after another.”
But the first typewriter proven to have worked was built by the Italian Pellegrino Turri in 1808 for his blind friend Countess Carolina Fantoni da Fivizzano; unfortunately, we do not know what the machine looked like, but we do have specimens of letters written by the Countess on it. (For details, see Michael Adler’s excellent 1973 book The Writing Machine. Carey Wallace’s 2010 novel The Blind Contessa’s New Machine is based on the relationship between the Countess and Turri.)
Typewriters of this type were the word processors of the day and were found in every office and every up scale home. Today some writers and novelists still prefer to type out their books and letters using these reliable old mechanical machines with keys and ribbons of ink.
The photograph by Edward M. Fielding gives this old workhouse plenty of drama and weight using low key photography techniques in the studio.
