Laurence, Rod and I went for a little tour of Minneapolis tonight to shoot some photos. I had planned on processing a few images tonight, but ended up processing everything that I will likely want to. I wasn’t going to share these here, but I figured why not…might as well put this blog that nearly no one visits to some good use 🙂
I highly recommend the Stone-Arch Bridge area if you’ve never been to Minneapolis. The Mill Ruins park is a good place to start, and sunset is a great time to see the sights around this area. We stopped across the way at Tugg’s Bar for a cheeseburger, which was absolutely terrible and decided not to go back out into the cold to shoot some nighttime stuff…After all, we were all exhausted 🙂
My first play around with a ND filter, Cheers Laurence. This is the Stone Arch Bridge as seen from the small “parkish” area beside it. A shorter exposure, I took two of these images and this one is by far my favorite. I like how the ND filter flattens the water and adds a dramatic tone to the sky.
The other image, this one was exposed 2 minutes longer at F16. I like this image, but I ended up processing the color into it. The prior image was only adjusted for brightness…but either way, I think they are both pretty cool….eh?
Gold Medal Flour as the sun hits it in the evening. This is a really cool spot to be in, standing on the bridge and watching the sun set in Minneapolis. This day it created a really cool effect into the clouds behind it.
There you have it, Minneapolis. A fun shoot and I learned a lot. Catch ya all soon.
