First Post - White Marsh Church, Talbot County

March 22, 2014  •  1 Comment

This is my first post in quite some time.  I used to run another Blog, called "Bramble's Guide to Fine Living", here's a link:    http://pcbramble.blogspot.com

So at any rate, my first blog post on my new site will be on the White Marsh Church, which I photographed yesterday while driving from Easton to Snow Hill for work.  

Pictured here is all that is left of the church.  The ruin has stood this way since fire destroyed the remainder of the structure in 1897.  The Church was built in the mid 1600's, however, by the time of the fire, it had mostly been abandoned for churches closer to respective town centers in the area.  This church sits alone, on a small hill (large hill in Eastern Shore terms), within site of Rte 50 between Easton and Trappe.

To make this photo, I used my Fuji X-T1 with a 14mm lens on a tripod with the aid of a remote trigger.  The aperture is f22, and I used a "Dynamic Range" advanced setting option built into the camera.  My shutter speed was 1/60th of a second.  I had stopped at the church to experiment with the Dynamic Range Setting, and ended up with a good image.  I can see myself employing this setting frequently based on the success I had with this exposure.

I used the Auto Exposure feature (A on the Fuji Camera, AV on my Canon), and allowed the camera to set the exposure time.  I find I use AV often, it takes care of changing light conditions, while leaving me in control of the aperture settings.
