Description
I made this photograph with a 4x5 film camera in rural northwest New Jersey. This particular birch tree had fallen in a field of long grasses. If I hadn’t looked down as I walked off the trail I would never have noticed this unique find. When I was out capturing this, I wanted to try and take the photograph to the next level. I framed my shot with a large format 4x5 film camera and waited. I was waiting for the wind to pick up so that I could take a long exposure, blurring the moving grasses. After about ten minutes the wind picked up enough to add some motion to the photograph.
Try it!
