Nikon D5000, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, 35mm, f/2.8, ISO 200 While going back through some brackets from a July visit to this Abandoned Power Station, it brought me back to the feeling it was like to explore this amazing location. It was an incredible adventure and I had the luxury to explore it with two people […]

October 27, 2011 - 10:48 pm

Michael Glover - This is absolutely amazing! That ND filter creates some interesting images!

October 28, 2011 - 7:50 am

Len Saltiel - Great long exposure and leading line to the wreck Scott. I’ve shot that wreck and mine is nowhere as good as yours. I’ll have to reshoot it!

October 28, 2011 - 2:14 pm

Kris Koeller - Fantastic result. Keep it up, this is terrific work. Really inspired to try one of these filters.

October 28, 2011 - 2:33 pm

A.Barlow - This is freaking awesome man. Love that dark sky and the bright foreground that leads you into the subject.

October 30, 2011 - 10:08 am

Dave DiCello - Wow Scott, this is just incredible! I love that long exposure, one of your best!

October 30, 2011 - 11:49 am

TonnyTranVinh - Ohhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh..Very good! A scenic ocean and you have little creative.The result you have a photograph. I like your style.(-_=)

October 31, 2011 - 7:59 am

Jan Winther - This one is really good Scott – kidding, its a fantastic shot. Amazing tones, the blur in the sky compared to the tag sharp rocks. Incredible.

November 1, 2011 - 11:47 am

Jim Nix - that came out really nice Scott

November 1, 2011 - 2:28 pm

Mike Criswell - awesome Scott, I am going to have to get the extra 6 stop, you have convinced me

November 1, 2011 - 6:44 pm

Scott Wood - Love it. It really makes me look forward to our upcoming move to the northwest and the water.

November 4, 2011 - 3:01 pm

Chris DeAngelis - Wow Scott! This is sick! Love all the drama in the sky contrasted with the smooth water! Just fantastic!

Nikon D5000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 11mm, f/22, ISO 100, 60 seconds When working with Neutral Density filters such as the B + W ND 10 stop filter, you really need to stop down your aperture.  Also setting your ISO to the lowest possible setting will yield some nice results.  Since I’ve taken this shot, I’ve […]

Jose Vazquez - Awesome shot Scott! I never thought about stacking to allow yourself to shoot a little wider. Great tips.

October 21, 2011 - 10:04 am

Shola Animashaun - I love this, I love the movement captured with the clouds. Thumbs up!

October 21, 2011 - 10:09 am

Brian Furbush - Great comp Scott, and nice choice with the B&W conversion. Always dig your minimalist stuff.

October 21, 2011 - 10:40 am

Kris Koeller - That’s awesome. I’ve not tried that, but eager to. Are those filters pricy? Great result. Super sharp.

October 21, 2011 - 11:56 am

Curt Fleenor - I’ve begun experimenting with filter stacking to get longer exposures and the results can be amazing. Nicely done Scott!

October 21, 2011 - 1:42 pm

A.Barlow - The sky in this shot is a winner. really cool.

October 21, 2011 - 1:50 pm

LensScaper - Tremendous shot – the sky radiates out beautifully and the foreground ‘trio’ of lines are so crisp. Love it!

October 22, 2011 - 6:36 am

john farnan - Hi Scott,
Cool article.
Stacking is a great way to reduce the light coming in.
I have in the past but started to get some vingetting.
I use a variable filter now which can be adjusted down to about nd 10 I think.
Though shooting in Scotland for most of the year the shutter speeds can be far slower anyway as the summer comes and goes way too fast :-(


October 22, 2011 - 11:42 am

Scott Anderson - Hey Scott – love your shots, and the fact that you show your EXIF data. Can’t speak for others, but one thing I would find useful / helpful would be the time of day the shots were taken. Sometimes it might be fairly obvious, but not so much for the long exposure B&W photos with the ND filters. Not trying to make more work for you, but inquiring minds want to know!

October 24, 2011 - 11:03 am

Jan Winther - Beautiful shot Scott. No question about that. The B/W processing is top notch as usual. I just got my new Vari ND filter last month, and it works wonders on water falls. Stacking ND filters is something that need to be tried. Thanks for the inspiration.

October 26, 2011 - 12:47 pm

Chris DeAngelis - Sweet! Love the drama in the sky! I have been playing more with my 10 stop and am leaning towards a 6 also for sunsets/dusk. Never thought to stack em though! Great work!

October 26, 2011 - 1:31 pm

Mike Criswell - Great shot Scott, I have the 10 stop, I might have to look into the 6 as well, I found sometimes 10 just isn’t enough for me


Nikon D5000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 16mm, f/8, ISO 200 The Scranton Lace Factory Exploration was one of the most relaxing ones yet, mainly because the owner granted me permission to be on the property. These buildings will eventually be turned into some sort of artist community space and I’m glad I was able to spend […]

Dave DiCello - This is outstanding Scott. The processing is perfect, not overally great, has a true urbex feel to it. But then again, you are the master!

October 20, 2011 - 10:28 am

Kris Koeller - I’m really enjoying this series. so many great, atmospheric places to see.

October 20, 2011 - 10:57 am

Edith Levy - Fabulous shot Scott. Your right I do like the angle and the view outside the broken window really adds to the shot. I love the textures as well.

October 20, 2011 - 1:15 pm

Curt Fleenor - Wonderful textures and subtle changes in lighting. The one small window does add an interesting aspect to the wall of glass. I don’t use Nil but I am a firm believer in PhotoTools, it makes a world of difference in my work.

October 20, 2011 - 1:35 pm

A.Barlow - You always seem to find the most dusty, run down locations to shoot. I’m amazed sir. Nice job.

October 20, 2011 - 1:44 pm

LensScaper - You’ve really captured the character of this corridor. Your thinking about POV was spot on – the view out to another building adds an extra dimension and is perfectly placed in the frame. I’ve never tried HDR (yet!), but it is images like this that persuade me that certain images take a quantum leap when the technique is applied.

October 28, 2011 - 2:19 pm

Bobby Bradley - I love this processing. This looks like a great find of a location.

Sharon DeHayes - Saw this image on Google+, and came to visit your blog. I like this image – looks like the poles are reaching out to each other. Nice job!

October 13, 2011 - 12:17 pm

Brian Furbush - Great minimalism Scott – nicely converted into B&W.

October 13, 2011 - 12:24 pm

A.Barlow - Very cool. Your minimalistic mono shots are inspiring man. Keep it up!

October 13, 2011 - 12:54 pm

Curt Fleenor - Wonderfully simple, I’m really enjoying your long exposures.

October 13, 2011 - 1:16 pm

Edith Levy - Beautiful long exposure. I love the simplicity of this.

October 14, 2011 - 8:11 am

Scott Anderson - Scott, I for one always look forward to seeing not only what you’ve shot, but the details behind the photo. So yes, people read what you have to say. Keep up the great work.

October 14, 2011 - 12:20 pm

LensScaper - That is my kind of B&W photography. Stripped out and smoothed down to the basics. Simple and highly effective. I could stare at that on a wall for a long time!

October 16, 2011 - 10:47 am

Jan Winther - Honestly, I think you nailed this one. Its should be on the wall. It’s so simple and very pleasing to look at IMO.
Great shot.

October 17, 2011 - 10:23 am

Kris Koeller - Nicely done.

October 18, 2011 - 8:09 am

Dave DiCello - Scott this is awesome man, incredible B&W

October 18, 2011 - 10:50 am

Chris Frailey - Nice use of negative space. Well done Scott.
