Connecticut Scenics ®
● Connecticut Scenics ® was created in
1999 by photographer Peter Guerard and his wife, Michele Morrissey, as a vehicle to display
and sell images of their work. Peter has been a photographer since the early 70's, and has shot images
from Long Island Sound in southern New England to the Berkshire Mountains in western New England. No longer
participating in Arts & Crafts shows, Peter now presents technical lectures on landscape photography to various
photography groups within Connecticut. Individual instruction is also available.
● Peter and Michele are both self-taught photographers.
Peter is a graduate of the University of Hartford with a BS degree in Chemistry and an MBA in Operations
Research. He has recently retired from corporate life. Michele is a customer service representative for an
international shipping firm.
● Some of the images displayed on
this website are from a library of over 5,000 35mm transparencies. In 2008 we made the switch
to digital. Transparencies were scanned into the computer with a Nikon LS5000 Coolscan.
RAW digital images are converted to TIFF files with minimal adjustments in Photoshop.
● Images are printed on an Epson wide-carriage
printer using Epson Ultrachrome archival pigment inks and Luster paper. The prints are then cold-mounted
on Alpharag archival matte boards, framed with Nielsen black museum frames and UV-conservation glass to
preserve the image. Print longevity is estimated to be about 160 years.
