DescriptionThis is a night shot of the Mackinac Bridge. The bridge is the 3rd longest suspension bridge in the world and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.I took this shot from the Lower Peninsula side and shot with a zoom lens for a long exposure (60 seconds). I started at one focal length and then after a few seconds I would zoom out a bit and then wait a few more seconds. When I completed the range of the zoom, I went back the other direction for the duration of the exposure. Other than some minor curves work in Photoshop, this was done entirely in camera. I like this shot because it sort of makes me think that the bridge made it's own fireworks display.
James Howe, Ann Arbor Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I'm a photographer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My main photographic interests are architecture, architectural abstracts, industrial and things with graphical details and classic automobiles. My images typically try to capture something unique about the subject. For buildings and architecture it might be some part of the building that people might typically ignore. For cars it might be a detail that gets overlooked. Sometimes it's just a unique perspective on something that people see on a daily basis.
All of my images were shot using a DSLR and typically receive at least minimal processing in Lightroom and/or Photoshop. Additional work is sometimes done to refine the image, similar to work done in a traditional wet darkroom. It is my belief that photographic art encompasses everything from composing and taking the shot through final processing. Getting it 'right' in the camera generally means planning ahead for digital darkroom processing. My Image Notebook blog describes processing details for many of my images.
