Today’s image is one I grabbed during our second Historic Mills Photo Workshop this past weekend.  After seeing Bob Lussier’s post on his blog yesterday, I was inspired to copy him and do something similar.

While my time during the day was spent working with our participants, I did have my camera over my shoulder with the 50mm prime to grab a few shots of everyone shooting away.  But temptation is strong when I’m in the Stone Mill, and I just had to grab a few shots here and there.  No tripod, no brackets, but still a few clicks now and then, such as this shot of an old cart in the attic space.

The workshop was fantastic as we had a terrific group of photographers with us for the day.  The feedback has been great so far, and we’re looking forward to hosting more workshops in the fall.

    […] Mill last week.  This area of the mill can be somewhat dark even in the daytime as seen in this shot, but at night, it’s D.A.R.K.  As with yesterday’s image, I lit the cart with a […]
