Lake Living spring 2015

April 03, 2015  •  2 Comments

The spring edition of Lake Living magazine has been out for several weeks now. I contributed photographs for two articles and supplied the cover image. Here I'll post some images that were published and others that were not. For more details, please see the online version of the magazine.

The magazine's graphic artist cropped this image to a vertical and used it on the cover. One of the articles was about a local business which sells record players and other high-end audio equipment.

The other article was a followup to an article from spring of 2014 covering the restoration of an old hall in Denmark, Maine. Some of my images were composed to match images from the previous article (which I did not photograph).

Upstairs is the large open space with a stage. The woodwork and trim has amazing detail.

This is the full space. Here I used the 16-28 zoom with the full frame Nikon D600. With care the extreme wide angle can be kept from distorting too much (and with help from Lightroom).

A little fill-flash was used to light the door.

The upstairs of this hall was once used for a now-defunct secret society. This sliding cover was used by members to gain access. Notice the birds-eye maple panels.

At another time, the upstairs was used as a carpenter's shop for making caskets. This hole in the floor/ceiling was used to lower the finished caskets through to a waiting cart.

Two old box assembly machines. The closer one has been restored to mostly working order and I got a demonstration of how it drives multiple nails into a board at the same time.

The hall is on the left. The barn, behind, and the farmhouse, on the right, are still under restoration. A wood pellet burner in the basement of the hall supplies heat to all three buildings. As for the snow, well that is what you get when you have to photograph spring magazine photos in February. That said, now there is still snow banks around the buildings, although the drive is muddy.
