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 at Arts & Crafts shows. 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. He also presents technical lectures on landscape
photography to photography groups. 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 are scanned into the computer with an Nikon LS5000 Coolscan.
RAW digital images are converted to TIFF files with minimal adjustments in Photoshop.
● Prints for sale at Arts & Crafts
shows 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.
