I shot this one in 2007 when I first started experimenting with long exposures. Although I lost the EXIF data on this photo, it was still clearly a long exposure. I took a road trip with a friend of mine from New Jersey to Miami to help him move into his new college dorm and we got to south Florida at night and made a pit stop in The Everglades where it was pitch black. Thats where I remember taking the first round of long exposures for this trip. It was fun being able to see stars in the sky in photos, this might have been the first time I've experienced that.
Here is one I shot from the everglades on that night:
I don't remember if this was the same night, or the night after, but I remember shooting in the sand wasn't fun. I also remember a couple of us North Eastern kids jumping in the water that night in the pitch black and everyone looking at us like we were crazy.
The only EXIF data I have was that it was shot with a Canon 20D and iso200. I think the only lenses I had at that time were a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and the 18-55mm kit lens, so this had to have been shot with one of those. It's not the best photo by my standards today, but it was one of the first photos I was proud of, so it stands out to me.
