“Abstract Light?” – Pacific Ocean – James Carretta – Featured Photographer
Today’s photo is a bit different than the normal travel photo seen here and that is exactly why we posted it. What do you think it is? How was it done? Do you like it? Why do I ask all these questions? Well I can at least answer that one. I ask because when I saw this photo I asked myself all of them and was only right on the “Do you like it?” question. I love to think, so thanks Jim for that and your crazy photo!
Take it away Jim:
I took this photo inside of the cruise leader’s stateroom aboard the NOAA ship David Starr Jordan in 2005. I turned out all the lights and closed the door. A little bit of artificial light was coming through the vents in the door from the passageway outside. I had one of those early version point and shoot digital cameras (3.5 megapixels I think). I did a 10 to 15-second exposure, while SLOWLY rotating the camera clockwise. I didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised with the result.
