John Fink Jr. Fine Art & Collodion Photography | Black Oak Tree On Princeton Pike

Black Oak Tree On Princeton Pike

November 25, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I found myself out in the cold and wind last Saturday.  Crazy wet platers do these things.

I had been planning to photograph the big Black Oak Tree on Princeton Pike, just South of Princeton, NJ.

I set up my table and poured the first plate.  I almost lost it off my fingers using the waiter's method :-)

Fortunately, I held on and finished the pour.  

Aside from two separate cars stopping for directions (always at critical times), no problems after that.

For the most part I'm happy with the results.  I got nice detail in the tree.  The sky was very streaky and mostly cloudy.

You can see a streak of blue sky in the first image.

Because of the wind, the wild flower image has movement.  Kind of cool.

I used f11 for all three of these images with exposure time at 60 seconds.
