Red Mill Photography, Clinton N.J.

The Red Mill in Clinton is located on the west end of Main Street, Clinton N.J. One of the most photographed locations in New Jersey. Here is a challenge. See if you cannot shoot the mill differently than any other artist. There is a cute little gallery across the street near the end of the bridge with all the local artist’s paintings of the mill.  The cafe on the water’s edge is a great place to stop to eat. It does get busy, so try to avoid peak time.

Please do go into the mill and do their tour. An excellent staff will take you through and show you the history. If you like this place, you can even get married here. There was a wedding going on in the back while we were here. The bride and her party arrived and passed by me in a van. I didn’t want to get in the way, so we didn’t wander to the back to take pictures. You can see the magnificent view here to get some excellent reflection shots. We will be going back since we now know they are haunted.

Manners and Etiquette 101. When you see a photographer clearly taking a picture DO NOT walk straight in front of the camera, two feet from the lens, with complete disregard for the photographer.

Photography Information:

Photography challenge: Photograph the Red Mill in Clinton in a unique way that has never been done before.  This is one of the most photographed and painted locations in our state. How can you do it differently?

This is a relatively quick stop that should be paired up with another location if you are looking to stay busy all day. You can pair this up with Blairstown, N.J., Lakota Wolfe Preserve or stop on your way to the Poconos or Lambertville depending on your direction of travel.  Don’t head here without your tripod, neutral density filter, and a circular polarizing filter.  A good wide-angle lens will work at this picturesque location. Of course, you need to do this shot for a long exposure for the milky water effect. If you live nearby and your not sure how there is a photography workshop in the Poconos that focuses on waterfalls and night photography.

Don’t forget when shooting from the bridge on a long exposure you have to wait until there are no cars on the bridge to vibrate it and ruin your shot. That’s not hard to do. It’s a beautiful quiet location.

If you stick around for some night photography, this location is on the problematic side. There is a massive spotlight on the Mill at night time, which makes your long exposure shot uneven.
