Photo Shoot at Saint-Gaudens

Today, a group of photographers and models from the “New England Portrait Photographers and Models” meetup group drove 2 1/2 hours to Saint-Gaudens in Cornish, NH for a great photo shoot.

Saint-Gaudens is a national historic site with a beautiful home, studios and gardens of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America’s greatest sculptors. Since Saint-Guadens doesn’t open until Memorial Day weekend and the fact that it’s only April (despite the 80-degree temps) there were little in the way of flowers, but the property still offered ample backdrops for us photogs.

Here are a couple of photos from the shoot. Sometime this week many more will be posted to my portfolio site over at

I created this photo below as a vertical panorama. The tree in front of the building was so beautiful, but even with a 24mm wide lens I wasn’t able to capture the entire height. Instead I took two images, one on top of the other with about a 20% overlap and used the Panorama feature of Photoshop CS4 to merge them. I also used the perspective tool in Photoshop to correct for some perspective issues caused by the 24mm wide lens.
