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.
