What do you do when you have full moon and access to a “Middle Of Nowhere” Cabin? You do a little night photography! We were hopeful we wouldn’t have many clouds going on in the sky – but we did. We actually got snowed on!! So, while we were waiting for the sky to clear up, we did a little tabletop light painting with some objects we could find.
Once the moon was showing, we took some long exposures (about 2-3 minutes)! The one with the star trails was a 20 minute exposure but with the full moon out, everything started looking as if it were daylight.
Thanks to Rebecca Johnston, Zach Cooper, and Brian Bell for their inspired minds and dedication to great photography! To see more of their work, click on their names.
Dustin, I’ve been waiting for these! I love the star trail. Great composition catching the cabin between the pines too! I love the shadows on the bottom one too. So peaceful and relaxing. You are a master to learn from!
All good things come to those who wait! 🙂 The crazy part about seeing that cabin between the pines is that I didn’t even see it over there when I was framing the shot. But it turned out great!
These shots are awesome! I love seeing the star trails in the first one and the sweeping clouds make the sky even better. The moon looks like the sun in the bottom two images. Nice work, Dustin. Sounds
Ike a fun excursion. Where is this?
This was up in Ashton – Rebecca knows the place and took us up there – and it was a great place! I want to go back there and take some more photos. Get some real star trails happening!
You’ve done it again man! You are a master. You even managed to capture the essence of that creeping fog that I was freakin out about! Bem feito meu amigo!
That creeping fog was something else that night! Too bad I didn’t something to capture how fast it was moving…
I LOVE the star trails one, it is so hard for me to believe those images were taken in the dead of night! They’re so bright! I love them!
Zach – It is really hard to believe that it was dark outside when these were taken! Gotta love those long exposures! 🙂
