Silk Mill Rerun App 6x6

Bathroom Sink        Capture: 6x6 Processed: Snapseed: PerfectPhoto
This past weekend I joined a group of photographers on Sunday to do some shooting in the old Lonaconing Silk Mill in Western, Maryland. I made several images with the Nikon and then started making iPhone shots. I was having a great time working in the mill with the shooting app 6x6 making exposure decisions with the retical. 6x6 has as a part of the application the ability to select areas in the image for exposure and focus. I love this app for its square format and exposure control. The mill has very dark and bright areas, normally an HDR shooting venue, but I challenged myself to find images using only one shot on the iPhone, adjusting the placement of the exposure retical for the exposure I liked. If you live in Maryland I hope you can join me at Horizons Photography Workshops in Chesapeake City for my iPhone photography workshops on March 10 or June 9.

  1. I love the still life shots and how you controlled light and detail. I have the same Warehouse Shadows shot. Was working on mine last night and will post soon. Very similar. It was darker than heck down there wasn't it? I knocked my tripod and camera over working down there. Did you see the big old scale under the window? And the creepy exercise bike under the stairs?

  2. OMG I hope your camera survived! And yes it is a great place to work. Glad you made it up there before its gone. I did see all that stuff in the basement.

  3. Great photos. Karen: I'm always inspired by your photos. My favorite is the "Tool" -- love the colors that you've captured. Hope one day to be back in your area and be able to take a workshop with you.
