Art galleries and museums are often dimly lit places. Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is no different, and working in the dark provides challenges and rewards. I came to Crystal Bridges hoping to be inspired, I was.
I wanted to capture the timelessness of the sculpture juxtaposed with the transient passage of the visitors, so I opted for a very long exposure. Angles were limited by where I could find a wall to brace against (tripods not permitted). This is a 3.2 second exposure. It took several shots to get ‘the one’ as I had no way to predict where people would go and what they would do while I was taking the picture.
‘Chimping’ the photo, I was so pleased with it, I knew I’d already got my ‘picture of the day’.
Here are a few of the ‘runners up’.
By the way, do I need to mention yet again how much I love my Fujifilm X-E2s camera?
