This is the Sideboard Saloon ruin, originally built in 1907 by saloon keeper Patrick Mullin, with the doorway arch all that remains of what was once a one story wood building. The stone arch entrance still stands, and so I photographed it in the evening. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although often plagued with cloudy skies, I tried to work with it the best I could. The green and blue light painting was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.

Alien Blue (International Car Forest of the Last Church, Goldfield, NV light painting photography)

This alien car seems to have took a wrong turn.

Outside the historic mining town of Goldfield, NV, in a desert dotted by Joshua Trees, you can see a field of old cars that are wildly painted and jammed into the ground at unlikely angles. This is the International Car Forest of the Last Church, created by Michael “Mark” Rippie and painted by Chad Sorg. In July 2014, I stayed in Goldfield and created night photos with light painting to enhance the bold colors of the painted cars even more. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and on this particular night, I got fairly clear skies. A gifted light painting photographer named Ron PInkerton was also there for the entire evening, and we had a fun evening photographing this surreal location.

With a nod of gratitude to Troy Paiva and Lance Keimig, two photographers who largely pioneered this sort of light painting approach.. I don’t do this sort of light painting often, but their two books definitely had an influence on this photo.

Red Ride Rolls Wrong Way (International Car Forest of the Last Church light painting night photography)

A bus, jammed into the ground at a strange angle, somehow manages to stay upright.

Goldfield Days, Antique Car Nights: Ghost Towns of Nevada

 Now almost a ghost town, Goldfield once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town fueled by the lust for gold. Many rusting cars, stamp mills, and equipment can be seen, and one can get a map of the historic sites almost anywhere in town. The inhabitants that remain are kind but don’t mince words, the sort of people who don’t care who you are as long as you are nice, and shoot from the hip. I like that. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although occasionally plagued with cloudy skies, I kept shooting, clear skies or no. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. However, I liked the feel of black and white for this image, so I decided to go with it!
