Photographer's Note

I had the enviable assignment of giving a series of lectures on board the Seabourn Sojourn's maiden voyage. During the two days, June 30-31, the elegant cruise ship was anchored in the harbor in Stockholm. I took the pair of photos from my stateroom, hoping to dramatize the difference between the night and day views. Most of the camera settings were similar, but the shutter speeds were vastly different. For the nighttime photo the exposure was a full 30 seconds and for the other, 1/90 second. Of course, a tripod was an essential piece of equipment for the former.

A tender is used to transport passengers back and forth between the ship and the port. And indeed, In the accompanying Workshop, the Sojourn and the harbor area are both seen. I would like to dedicate the photo to my former university student, Robin Söderquist, and his family, specifically Rickard, Lisa and Joakim, who greeted us in Stockholm, and treated us to a delicious meal.

I shot both the night and day photos in simple jpeg format. For the nighttime photo the file size was 3884x2600 pixels, 3.1 MB, ISO 200, the 28-200 mm Nikkor set at 48 mm, f/18 aperture, and a time exposure of 30 seconds. For the daytime photo the files size was 3872x2592 pixels, 4.1 MB, ISO 200, the 28-200 mm Nikkor set at 48 mm, f/18 aperture, 1/90 shutter speed.
