Pacific Mill

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier1 Comment

[singlepic id=2246 w=650 h=650 float=center] An older image for today’s post. This one from May, 2012. Although it could be from May of 2013, or 2011, given how much the Pacific Mill has changed over the years. But that’s about to change. The last time I was there I noticed “Dig Safe” markings on the …

Dark Passage

In 14mm f2.8, lawrence, mills by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

[singlepic id=2233 w=600 float=center] I’m still in awe of the Stone Mill at night. The eerie light pouring through the huge windows created some amazing shadow play, presenting amazing compositional opportunities.  This one, I am especially happy with. This doorway is fun to shoot in broad daylight, especially with a wide lens. Take away the sunlight …

Night Vision

[singlepic id=2232 w=650 h=650 float=center] The night started as a light painting session but I wasn’t having much luck in that department. I was using a weak LED flashlight to paint the utility cart in the shot I posted yesterday. The light was pretty weak so it took me a while to fund the best …

Wood Chips

[singlepic id=2224 w=750 float=center] I got a sneak peak at a mill in Lawrence that I hope to see more of soon. Two thirds of the building are either completely renovated or currently under construction.  The remaining third is … well … pretty raw. But not as raw as I expected. The floor I was …

Historic Mills Photography Workshop

In lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier3 Comments

[singlepic id=2181 w=650 float=center] It will be tough to top this weekend in terms of milestones, productivity, and fun. It is also tough to capture in a single blog post, but I’ll try. On Friday afternoon, I had the pleasure of shooting with my good friend, Scott Wyden who was visiting from New Jersey, On Friday …

The Loom

In 50mm 1.4, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier2 Comments

[singlepic id=2177 w=750 float=center] Last Summer at Lawrence’s Bread and Roses festival, the Lowell Textile Museum had a booth promoting their program. The highlight was a vintage, working loom. It wasn’t the place or time to do a comprehensive photographic study, but I managed to grab this somewhat abstract shot of the machine in action. …

Malden Mills

In 24mm PC-E, industrial, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

[singlepic id=2175 w=750 float=center] I spent some time in the archives last night looking for old images to re-process or – as in this case – images I originally overlooked. I know why I overlooked this one. It was shot back in 2010, when I was heavily into honing my HDR skills. I rarely (if ever) …

[singlepic id=2174 w=750 float=center] For today, another detail shot from the Stone Mill. This one is from a short shoot with my partner in the Workshops, Steven Perlmutter. Follow that link, BTW, if you want to see a cool textured shot of the Stone Mill. Anyway, on the day I shot this I was seeking …

[singlepic id=2173 w=600 float=center] In anticipation of the first Historic Mills Photography Workshop, coming up on Saturday April 6, I thought I’d spend the week posting images from the Stone and Everett Mills. I’m not sure if I have many that haven’t been published, so there may be some reruns. I know I haven’t posted …

Everett

In 16-35mm f3.5, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier2 Comments

[singlepic id=2171 w=750 float=center] Last summer I went to the Everett Mill to get a shot of the building my friend Tom Short requested. He wanted a tight shot of the building’s facade looking up towards the clock, which was partially blocked by branches. While Tom was standing on a 10 foot ladder, leaning into …
