Location:Redcliffe Jetty, Redcliffe
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Photo outing with Al, Mick, Anthony, David and Steve. During this long exposure, I walked toward the camera with a flashlight and umbrella (it was raining). I moved in a step, pause, step, pause fashion to ensure I my face made it into the shot.
Exposure was controlled via intervalometer, with a 30 second delay (for me to get far enough away) then a 30 second exposure. I also used the 2-second delay on-camera, which flashes a light out the front just as it's about to take the shot - this way I knew (in the dark, noisy jetty) when to start making my movements.
