A World Away

A companion piece to yesterday’s image from Lo Presti Park. The unifying element in the two (as well as the others I grabbed that day) is long exposure.

Long exposure is a style of photography that I have absolutely fallen in love with over the past couple of years — one that I don’t get to shoot nearly enough. Sunday gave me the opportunity to do it!

I had to pick my wife and son up at the airport that day so I thought I’d go in early and do some shooting. Their flight was due to get in around sunset, thus ruling out a sunset shoot, so I was restricted to shooting in some harsh, late afternoon conditions.  Between that and the mostly overcast conditions, I was thinking in black and white.

This particular shot is about a 30 second exposure on the OM-D E-M1. The lens was the 12-40mm (24-18mm on 35mm) set at 30mm at f/11.

Processing was done in Nik Silver Efex Pro2.
