Description This is probably my favorite shot Ive ever taken. It was taken this weekend on a trip to visit friends in Washington, D.C. This is one of my friends in this shot. We went to the National Gallery of Art to see a Jasper Johns exhibit and afterwards got on a moving walkway in the National Gallery. The walkway takes you through a long, dark corridor. I rested the camera on the railing of the walkway so that it was moving at the same speed as my friend in front of me. The shutter was open for about 8 seconds. I was excited to see the shot that resulted from the experiment.Very little photoshop work on this one. Just a little adjustment to saturation and contrast.
Richie Moriarty, Boston, MA Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement I am a photographer based in Boston, Massachusetts. Most of my photos are landscapes or architecture shots, but my focus changes almost daily.
Some of the pictures were taken using a technique called HDR. High Dynamic Range Photography is basically the blending of 3 or more different exposures of the same shot into one picture.
