Stone Long Exposure

After our recent Historic Mills photo walk around the Lawrence mills, I spent a little time trying some long exposures with the Stone Mill.  It was mid-day, but there were some great clouds moving quickly over the mill which looked to have potential.  I experimented with a variety of shutter speeds to finally get the look I wanted, and knew I was going to convert to black and white based on the harsh light.

And speaking of Historic Mills photo walks, we just so happen to have one coming up in a few weeks on July 27th.  Please visit our site for more information about this free event, as well as several other great events coming up in the next few months.  Between now and October, we have a full-day workshop, a photo walk for the Essex Heritage Trails and Sails event, and a new night time/light painting workshop that we’re very excited about.

    Really like how the sharp details in the brickwork contrast with the softness of the moving clouds Steven. Very nicely composed and exposed.
