Jeff Newcomer has been a physician practicing in New Hampshire and Vermont for over 30 years. Over that time, as a member of the Conservation Commission in his home of Chesterfield New Hampshire, he has used his photography to promote the protection and appreciation of the town's wild lands. In recent years he has been transitioning his focus from medicine to photography, writing and teaching. Jeff enjoys photographing throughout New England, but has concentrated on the Monadnock Region and southern Vermont and has had a long term artistic relationship with Mount Monadnock. He is a featured artist in a number of local galleries and his work is often seen in regional print, web publications and in business installations throughout the country. For years Jeff has published a calendar celebrating the beauty of The New England country-side in all seasons. All of the proceeds from his New England Reflections Calendar have gone to support the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at the Cheshire Medical Center. Jeff has a strong commitment to sharing his excitement about the special beauty of our region and publishes a weekly blog about photography in New England.

Produce Season Album

Peppers at Pete's farm Stand, Walpole, NH

The autumn color is coming. I already see a few trees changing, especially up high and in the wet areas, but while we wait for the cool refreshing air and the glorious blaze this is a time to celebrate the taste and the beauty of our harvest bounty. 


 During the late summer and early fall, I love "pixel grazing" though the many wonderful produce markets and farm stands in our region. In this week's New England Photographers Guild article, I celebrate the abundance of lovely produce and I have included more images here in my Getting it Right in the Digital Camera blog. This time of year, I accompany Susan to the markets and while she picks out dinner I harvest images of the fruit and vegetables.

Favorite local markets and stands include Walker Farm and Green Mountain Orchard in Dummerston Vermont, and Alyson's Orchard in Walpole New Hampshire. Our daily produce requirements are usually met by the Green Wagon Farm stand in Keene and Rick's Farm Stand along Route 9 in Chesterfield New Hampshire. It's great to have so many choices. They each offer special opportunities and challenges for photography. There is a wide variety of lighting and compositions, and it's a great time to pull out your macro lens.

So check out the images here and in my longer NEPG article. Hopefully they will inspire beautiful photography, but at the least you can anticipate some of the best eating of the year.

  1. How do you approach situations when you are in a vegetable stand and someone who works there asks why you are taking photos? Do you ask for permission first? I'm very shy about doing that because I've had people, even in public, ask me, with a bad attitude, why I'm taking a photo of...fill in the blank.

  2. Folks at farm stands are generally quite friendly, but it is always good to ask. You have to be very careful to avoid tripping people on your tripod.

  3. I recently found many useful information in your website especially this blog page. Among the lots of comments on your articles. Thanks for sharing.
