The Human Element in Photography

Human Element - A winter hiker ascends the Airline Trail during the winter months in extreme weather conditions in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The Human Element – Even though I prefer a landscape free of human clutter, adding a human element allows us to connect emotionally with the scene and view it in a different perspective. If done correctly, scenes that include a human element will pull the viewer into the landscape.

The above image from the alpine zone, along the Airline Trail, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire would have little impact and viewing interest without the hiker and snowshoe tracks. It is easy to understand why mountaineers from all over the world flock to the White Mountains every winter. The landscape is beautiful!

Five images from the month of March – During March I spent a few days shooting along the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I wanted to shoot a few locations along the Byway that have eluded me over the years, but was mainly interested in the Passaconaway settlement.

Just like January and February, March had a few snowstorms that created breathtaking snowscapes. To be in a forest after a snowstorm should be on everyone's bucket list. Its just a great feeling! Heres a few images from this month. Hope you enjoy them.

Five images from the month of February – When shooting for the ScenicNH Photography archive I find self assignments and a little direction to be very beneficial. On top of my everyday shooting, I try to focus on one subject every month that is connected to the environment.

Examples of past subjects I have focused on include extreme weather, backcountry camping impact, and trail stewardship. This approach has allowed me to build an extensive, marketable and profitable image archive of the White Mountains. The subject for this month is "snowshoe tracks", see some shots below.

Northeast Foliage season is in full swing – The New Hampshire White Mountains region is exploding with color! Every corner of the region is displaying color, so much it is overwhelming. The roads have been bumper to bumper with leaf peepers, and every scenic pull off is jammed packed with vehicles. If you are looking to get away from the crowds, exploring one of the Northeast's backroads may be you best bet.

I can not wait to see what the foliage looks like on a bright sunny day! We have not seen the sun for the last five days, and all shooting has been done in rain, fog and overcast conditions. Though the cloud cover has been a great natural diffuser, it is time for the sun. I would also like to dry off my rain gear at some point.
