TIME STANDS STILL

PARTING SHOT

TIME STANDS STILL

How was this image created?  Stephen explains...
 
I was walking around the Boardwalk and beach looking for unique images. It was midday, and nothing really stood out to me, so I went under the pier to see what I could find. I have shot here many times — at sunrise, in fog and during storms. This day was beautiful, yet nothing really caught my eye. I decided to create a time exposure, which is hard to do when there is too much light. I put my camera on a tripod and attached a neutral density filter to my lens, which is like placing a welder's mask over it. By decreasing the amount of light through the lens, it allowed me to reduce my shutter speed to 25 seconds. During this long exposure, the action of the waves is continuously recorded and results in the ghostly look of the ocean. Since the pier is stationary, movement is eliminated during the exposure.
