Jamie’s Photography

Jamie's photos on Flickr

Jamie dabbles in photography, mostly considering it a hobby. Yet he has sold a few of his better photos, and has granted licensing rights to some non-profit organizations for use on their websites (like SEDCO and VisitMaine.com). You can see some of his best work in posts here and on his Flickr page. Most (if not all) of those photos are available for licensing using built-in Flickr tools. If you have a personal or non-profit website and want to use one of my photos, contact me and ask. I’m generally okay with that sort of thing as long as I’m given credit.

In case you’re curious, Jamie uses the following equipment:

  • Canon Rebel T3i – I just purchased this 18 megapixel DSLR camera in May 2013. I have two lenses (so far), an 18-55mm IS (image stabilizing) and a 50-250mm IS.
  • Panasonic DMC-TZ3 – a 7.2 megapixel camera with a Leica 10x optical zoom. When he purchased this, it was the highest rated consumer camera on the market. It’s perhaps halfway between a typical point-n-shoot camera and a DSLR (on both price and features). This is currently a backup camera. I think the light sensor is failing.
  • Dynex TRP-60 tripod – He doesn’t use this on every shoot, but if the picture is clear, he probably used the tripod. If you think a picture is blurry, tell him to put down the coffee and use the darn tripod.
  • GIMP – for editing and retouching photos.

More New Photos on Flickr

By Jamie Alan Belanger on November 29, 2014 6:15 pm · 0 Comments

I just uploaded some new photos to my Flickr page. Honestly, I’ve been sitting on some of these for too long. Things have just been rather hectic around here. I meant to post these last week, but I burned through another hard drive… the main drive in my main system started throwing some read errors (er… by “some” I mean about 22 million).

First up is a small collection of photos I took out my back window at the end of Autumn. My whole back yard is now under a few inches of snow, so I won’t see things like this until next year:

Bradbury Mountain (Sep 25th, 2014)

Back in September, I went on a short hike (mostly vertical) up a local mountain (or what passes for a mountain here in Maine).

Rockport, MA (Aug 25, 2014)

Last but not least, I went on a quick family trip this past August to Rockport, MA. Nice place to visit, but I found it to be quite crowded.

Prince Edward Island road trip photos

By Jamie Alan Belanger on August 10, 2014 11:44 am · 0 Comments

Finally! Yes, it took me a very long time to get around to editing and posting these, but I finally managed to do it.

Last summer, I took a road trip with my brother Paul, our mom, our sister Lynn, and her husband Ralph. We drove (!) from Old Orchard Beach all the way to Prince Edward Island, then back, and then went up to Magog to visit family before returning home. It was a grueling trip with way too much driving, but I had been wanting to see Prince Edward Island for a long time, and we were all quite happy to have gone. My only wish would have been to have a few more days. We walked around the capitol, Charlottetown, for an entire day. A few more days to see the rest of the island would have been perfect. I certainly plan on going back.

I took a lot of pictures, but only posted the 23 best ones. Here’s a few highlights:

New Photos on Flickr

By Jamie Alan Belanger on August 5, 2014 11:42 am · 0 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve posted new photos, and actually been a while since I’ve taken new photos. Some of these have been sitting on my computer for a long time. I’ve been meaning to share them, I’ve just been busy with writing and publishing.

First are some pictures from December 2012, from a trip I made to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota FL with my mother. These are some of the last pictures I took with my old camera, which had a light sensor failure that would cost more to fix than the camera is worth.

The second set I uploaded were some test photos I took with my new camera, a Canon Rebel T3i. These have been shrunk a lot. Wasn’t sure I wanted to upload a bunch of 7MB images, or what Flickr would do with images that size since I only have a free account. I was mostly experimenting with the two lenses and depth-of-field.

Plus I uploaded two other bonus pics I had in my folders:

Blue Sky

A pic I took through the sunroof in my car

And another panorama:

Panorama5- Goosefare Brook

 

I still have a few more pics to process, mostly from a trip to Prince Edward Island last July and August. I’ll try to get those up later today or at some point tomorrow.

July 2013 Update

By Jamie Alan Belanger on July 1, 2013 4:00 pm · 0 Comments

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a monthly update. The intention was always there, but I always end up doing something else. I spend a lot of time on various projects, and many days I honestly couldn’t tell you what I’ve been working on. Heck, this post started as a June 2013 update, and look where that got me.

Some people ask me what it is I do all day. I’m always so busy, and quite often more than a little tired, but why? Well, this is a post for those who wonder; a glimpse into all the projects I work on and all that I do.

So
Much
Snow

I have been sharing a few pictures of this mess on my Facebook page, but for those of you who don’t subscribe, you can now see the pictures from Nemo on my Flickr stream. I posted 8 pics, all taken from and around my condo in Southern Maine.
