Thachers Island Light Fresnel Lens

August 13, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The other day I was at the Cape Ann Museum making some photographs for the paper of areas of the museum that have been refurbished. The fresnel lens from Thacher's island has found a new home and the space they built for it is unsurpassed. It looks great! The camera I was toting was the Canon 5D Mk3 and the 24-70 F2.8 L which is perfect for shooting just about anything you want in the museum. I had shot the fresnel lens before but it was stuck in a storage room so the light was terrible. In it's new spot it takes on a majestic quality as the lighting is really nice. Since I loved what they did with the presentation of the lens I made a shot of it as a whole then I started shooting the lens in smaller sections as I think that's when the lens takes on a different quality. Here are some shots as I went from wide angle to medium telephoto.
