I went to the pier outside of the Torpedo Factor in Alexandria last night to attempt some long exposure waterscape shots. My goal was to produce some ethereal like scenes found in the works of my favorite photographer Michael Kenna. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to isolate the shots from the surrounding signs of “civilization” such as the blinking lights by the shore and the passing of boats. Also I found that the 30-second exposure limit on my D90 is not long enough to produce a silky mirror surface given the wind factor. Excuses aside, I’m just not good enough yet. Out of all the shots I took I like this particular one, though I can’t really explain why.
Some stats: Exposure: 10s, Aperture: f/11, Focal Length: 24mm, ISO Speed: 400. Cropped and resized in Photoshop.
