The Tree Continued…

Not sure which composition I like better… yesterdays or todays. What I do know is I love this scene…

I like the wide view of the vines, slightly curved on this sweeping hill and the movement the clouds in the sky suggest is happening… I like the dark rich blue framed by the whote puffy clouds, and yet there is a hint of grey… coming rain maybe… I like how the sun was brighter on the right of the frame than the left.

Not sure which one you like better? The vertical or the landscape… I guess it comes down to personal taste.

Thinking about doing this shot on canvas for The Gallery. Think the texture would really enhance the finished product.



The Signature Frame Collection: Jenne’s Farm

Since we opened last year Jenne’s Farm has struck a chord with clients hat have come to The Gallery. It’s one of our best selling prints, and seems to really draw viewers in to its idyllic New England scene.

… The vibrance of this image is one of the reasons it was selected to be included in the Signature Frame Collection. The rich, heavy wood frame and Museum quality mat finish this piece perfectly.

Introducing The Signature Frame Collection…

We’ve been hard at work at The Gallery!

We are proud and excited to introduce The Signature Frame Collection. We’ve selected a few of our spectacular images to finish in a “you’ve-got-to-see-it-to-believe-it” fashion.

First, the images are printed on Epson’s Exhibition Fiber paper, one of the most luxurious papers a photograph can find itself on. Next ,we added Museum quality mats (where appropriate) and finally, we worked with a design team to incorporate some heavy-duty, WOW!, frames to compliment and complete each image. If cared for properly, these works of art can last well over 100 years.

Stop down at the Gallery, they are on display, and available for purchase now.

The Gallery Turns One!

This Saturday night, December 11th, 2010, we are having a little wine and cheese gathering at The Gallery. Its a little celebration of sorts… The Gallery is turning ONE!

To celebrate we are having a raffle called “You Pick 1” (sort of a play on the one year old theme). Walk The Gallery, flip through the portfolios… find an image you love. Give us your email address, the image name and why you like it and we’ll toss your name and hopefully a bunch of others into a hat. We’ll pick a lucky winner on January 8th 2011. Just a little thank you for making the first year sooo much fun!

Moab Day II

Up at 4:30am to drive to Mesa Arch, the famous “rock bridge” that the sun rises through and turns the underbelly of the rock a brilliant vibrant red. I’ve seen pictures taken of the location before and thought that the photographer jacked up the actual colors… haven been there this morning, I can tell you the red is real. It’s absolutely amazing to see and witness a new day bursting through the arch.

Looking through the arch yields more incredible opportunities to shoot. With the hazy light separating the various mesas in the distance I snapped a bunch of photos that highlight the compression of the 70-200mm lens. Makes for a really nice photograph. Can’t wait to get home and print this for the Gallery wall.

Come Join US!

Friday, May 14, 2010! The “Official” opening of Rowland Photography |The Gallery will happen at 5:30pm. The Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce will be performing the ribbon cutting… very exciting for us at The Gallery. Better yet, we’ll be donating 20% of our sales that weekend to the March of Dimes- a terrific organization that we hope to raise some money for. So… if you’ve wanted to stop down or purchase a print… stop down!

NEW at The Gallery

I’ve long been a fan of the handwritten note. In this email crazy, blackberry driven, iphone wielding day, nothing goes further than a handwritten note to a friend, family-member, or loved one. Unlike the immediacy of email, a note has to be thought out, constructed and paused upon. You can rarely just fire one off… the great thing about it, is the recipient will linger on your words, and have a keepsake for years to come.

Really… nothing beats it.  Try it, I promise, the reaction you get will be worth it.

“Don’t send an email, send a Fine Art Notecard”… not sure that has the marketing ring to it that I would like BUT, you get the idea 🙂

We are taking some of our images and translating them to 5″x7″ notecards which will be available for purchase at The Gallery. $4.00 for a single card, 3 for $9.00. All notecards are signed. Cards are printed on paper from Red River Paper, a phenomenal paper company that makes stock specifically for notecards. It’s amazing stuff- we offer four different types of paper, a Fine Art Natural, Fine Art White, River Linen, and a High Gloss.

Stop in… check them out, buy one and send that handwritten note you’ve been meaning to accompanied by a beautiful Fine Art Print!

Been awhile under construction, but the vision is about to become a reality. Alot of hard work, by a number of people have brought Rowland Photography |The Gallery to life. We are located in the scenic town of Port Jefferson at 318 Wynn Lane. We welcome you to come join us on Saturday, January 9th 2010 for an opening reception (2pm-5pm & 8pm-10pm… we figured we’d have day and night owls so double the fun!). Many of the landscape and cityscape photos I’ve posted will be on display… and working with a local framing company, we’ll be offering custom matting and framing options for prints purchased in the Gallery.

Not sure where this road will lead, but the realization of this vision has left me breathless. Come join us if you can…
