A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography

Week 13. #24. Long Exposure


Thanks to this challenge and a fellow photographer, I learned something new last week. On a beautiful day with a gentle breeze and puffy clouds above, I learned to use a variable filter, which I have had for nearly a year and never used. We spent about 3 hours together with a goal of learning how to use the variable filter resulting in a long exposure. Alongside the Ringling Bridge and overlooking the Bay towards downtown Sarasota provided the perfect venue.
24. Long Exposure


Author: tnwaltz

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
