Long Bridge Blues
I took a page tonight from Bob Horowitz at All City and for the very first time, especially since now I actually have the capability, grabbed my camera and headed out at sunset to wait for the blue hour to set in. This shot is 120 seconds at f/11, ISO 100. Focal length is 18mm. I learned one and remembered one very valuable lesson tonight.
What did I learn?
I need a remote switch. I actually thought about this as I was driving to my destination and also considered stopping in for a rubber band and a #2 pencil (for the eraser). In the end, I figured I might be able to pull it off and in retrospect, it really isn’t that bad considering I was holding the shutter release for two minutes. That takes care of my bravado though; I’ll get a remote before I try it again.
What did I remember?
In North Idaho, you cannot stand on a bridge over a body of water with zero windbreak at the blue hour (even on May 1st) and not freeze your hind end off! Just sayin……
