Long Exposure in Wickford

March 05, 2013

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

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
