Structural Exposures

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.

More long exposure photos…

  1. I really like the graphic quality of the imagery and the way the long exposures filter out busy details, allowing the lines and shapes to dominate. Thank you so much for sharing!
