The Famous Yellow Covered Photo Guide Book Used By Photographer's From All Over The World (Copyright 2010 by Arnold John Kaplan)
VERMONT - "The Photographer's Paradise"
Vermont is a special place. A photographer's world of perfect compositions. Small picturesque villages with white steeped churches and quaint houses nestled in the valleys. Old farm houses and red barns on the rolling hills and meadows. A countryside that changes color and character with each season.
The green mountains, hills and forests of summer change to brilliant hues of orange, red and yellow in the autumn. Next comes winter with deep marshmallowy snow and crisp, clear, cold air.
Every where you look you see photo possibilities and each photo scenic should be visited again and again to catch the various moods, whims, lighting and designs of nature. All these ingredients add that extra touch for award winning photographs on your first visit to “Photographers Paradise"
Granted, thousands of photographers come to photograph the Photo-Scenics each year from all over the World. Yet these photographers return home with images that win awards in camera clubs, photographic exhibitions and are exhibited in the International Photo Salons.
Professional photographers come to Vermont year after year, in all seasons, to take saleable photographs for calendars, greeting cards, advertising illustrations and fine prints.
Vermont is an experience you will never forget. You will return many times in different seasons to improve your photography and try to catch that great prize winning photo.
If you have never photographed the world famous JENNE FARM in Reading, Vt. at sunrise on an Autumn or Winter day, then you have not fulfilled your best photographic dreams of shooting that great American photo-scenic.
There are two-dozen or more perfect compositions ready for you to shoot and take home. Places such as; Waits River, Placey Farm, East Orange, East Topsham, East Corinth, Tunbridge, Sherbourne Farm, Pomfret Highland Farm, Grandma Moses scene, Hillside Acres Farm, Quechee Barns, Gray Farm, Lee Farm, and the Sugar House.
Many people say that that these Photo-Scenics have been over done. Yet I photographed in Vermont for over 40 years and never came back with duplicate photos as each year, each season was different.
PHOTOGRAPHING IN VERMONT
HELPFUL HINTS FOR A PHOTO TRIP TO VERMONT
PHOTO EQUIPMENT: Bring all your photo-taking equipment, especially interchangeable or zoom lenses, polarizing and other filters, front lens accessories and a sturdy tripod.
IF YOU ARE STILL SHOOTING FILM: Take along twice as much as you think you will need. When conditions are good to perfect at the photo-scenics, you will shoot from 3 to 10 rolls a day or more. In autumn the stores in Vermont will sell film out fast, so bring plenty of film.
iF YOU ARE SHOOTING DIGITAL: Make sure to bring plenty of large size storage cards (Compact Flash, etc) as you will shoot over a couple of hundred or more images a day if condition or right.s
FOOD AND DRINK: Always carry food and drinks for lunches and snacks, as you will be miles away from any restaurant.
CHECK YOUR CAR: Before leaving home have your car checked and serviced and start each day in Vermont with a FULL TANK OF GAS as auto mechanics and gasoline stations will be miles away when you are on the small back roads
TRESPASSING: Most of the photo-scenics can be photographed without trespassing on posted land as you can take them from the roadside. If you feel you must go on to private posted land, it is best to ask permission of the owner first.
TIPS ON PHOTOGRAPHING THE VERMONT PHOTO-SCENICS
SNOW PICTURES should have snow on the trees, rooftops, fields and roads. Best to shoot a scene right after a snowstorm.
IN THE AUTUMN make sure the trees in the picture area do not have any bare branches. All the trees should be full of colorful leaves.
A STURDY TRIPOD is necessary for those sunrise or sunset pictures or for a depth of field scene that will need a slow shutter speed and a very small 'f' stop.
DON'T COME TO VERMONT WITHOUT a polarizing filter. You need this filter to bring out all the true color in the foliage in the autumn and in the winter it will darken the skies for contrast with the snow.
IN AUTUMN with color slide film or digital camera, you can replace your 1A sky filter with an 81A filter and use it with your polarizing filter for outstanding saturated color.
BE SURE to pick up any beer cans or newspapers or anything else that will mar the beauty of a scene.
