So when I see a quality picture of New Milford, I need to stop and stare. Some people have a gift with a camera in their hand and one of those people is Thomas Allen from New Milford. Thomas's passion for New Milford is clear in his photographs. Recently, I caught up with him to talk a little bit about his work.
New Milford Photographer Captures Awe Inspiring Photos in All Seasons
Recently, I was cruising through my Facebook feed in the New Milford group when I came across a picture so beautiful I felt compelled to contact the photographer and ask some questions. His name is Tom Allen and he was happy to share more information and photos with me.
I am not a person who is gifted with a camera in my hand. I never have the proper settings on my phone, I rush to take the pictures and my hand is shaking when I snap. I am awful at taking quality photos so I'm glad there are people who can capture and share these visuals, the way our eyes see them.
Big Thank you to Tom Allen for allowing me to share his work.

Exclusive Photos, Videos, and Interviews on the Set of New Milford Horror Movie
"Candlewood" is a horror film that just finished filming in New Milford, CT. This is how the filmmakers described the project on their Indiegogo:
"Candlewood is the first movie of three in the psychological/horror feature film franchise. A blended family moves from the city to a small town in Connecticut, where a local urban legend adds chaos and terror to an already fragile family dynamic. The staunch patriarch, who desperately wants his family to not see him as a failure but as the father that did everything, he could to keep his family together through difficult times. Candlewood follows a family leaving New York City for a simpler life in the country town of New Milford, CT. The haunting and mysterious true stories of missing hikers near a popular state park, Lover's Leap, coupled with the town of Jerusalem sitting at the bottom of Candlewood Lake gives credibility to our narrative. We bring to life the struggle of good vs evil and what happens when lifelong, outdated traditions are challenged."
A while back I got in touch with the folks behind the movie, invited them on the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou and Dave and talked about the film, and shooting in New Milford. We spoke with Director Myke Furhman and Writer/Executive Producer Victoria Flores-Argue. During that discussion, I demanded to be in the movie, telling the duo that I have some experience acting on TV shows that never actually made it onto TV. Against all odds, they did invite me to participate and I visited the set on October 20th to shoot a scene that is important. I was extremely nervous and I had zero idea of what I was in for. Below are some insider moments from my day on-set and from others.
