Slow photos from a derelict mill site
As in this related, but different, post, I recently loitered at the abandoned KFP saw mill site in Nelson. On this occasion, I had the right conditions to make daylight long exposures. The photos were shot over three visits and when I left the last time, I realized that this is the type of place where I could spend many more hours discovering new compositions and exploring varied lighting conditions. I hope to get back to do that…Notes: Long exposures shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and the XF18-55mm Fujinon lens, using 10- to 13-stops of ND filtering. Images processed in LR and SEP2. This site was abandoned in the 1980s. The local economy has taken a long time to recover, but the resilient residents have made Nelson a great place to live.
Workshop: I will be teaching a long exposure workshop at Lúz Studios in October.
