Long Exposure in Wickford
February has been such a dreary month, between three snowstorms in a row (all hitting on weekends) and incessant overcast and gray skies, I think it's fair to say there are plenty of people who are getting cabin fever. As we waited for warmer spring weather to roll in, I was caught up in multiple projects. Of course none of them involved shooting and before I knew it, it had been about 2 weeks since I was behind the camera.
But the other day I finally found a moment when my time and motivation were aligned. I grabbed my camera kit and headed out the door for some dusk long exposures in Wickford. Nothing too special, but just something to get me out there shooting!
Relief! I finally felt productive for once, and some of those winter blues seemed to melt away once I had that camera in hand! I came back with just a few shots from the docks, plus one of the Hussy Bridge, and of course when I was editing all the colors popped so much more than I had expected. Long exposure seems to enhance any colors out there, and that certainly happened for me. So here are a few takes from the day, all available as Fine Art Prints. I also have my personal favorite from the day, a vertical version of the first image, available as a Limited Edition Print. You can see more over at www.catebrownphoto.com.
