 Disarming Dino (4107): Long Exposure Night Photo with Light Painting
This is one of several concrete dinosaurs that was the beginning of a miniature golf course in the Mojave Desert. Begun in the early ’70s by Lonnie Coffman with the help of Air Force serviceman Gregory Wicker, the project was abandoned. But the concrete dinosaurs remain. My friend Dave Dasinger and I came here on a warm summer night.

This is a real photo taken at night. This evening, everything was illuminated by a big bright moon, an almost full moon, almost bright enough to read a book. And setting my tripod-mounted camera to a long exposure made the camera much more sensitive to light than our eyes on this already bright evening. This is why this photo seems brighter than what we might see at night. It is not due to post-processing. The moon, which reflects light from the sun, also makes the sky bluer, and when the photo is a long exposure photo, the sky will appear brighter, making the blue more apparent. I illuminated the dinosaur with a hand-held ProtoMachines LED flashlight. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

I am fascinated with how a single long exposure photo can show movements and the cumulative effects of light in a single image. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken You are encouraged to “share” on FB if you are wish. Thanks!

 Prayers for Syria Reaching the Heavens (4899): 
Arch from an abandoned mineral spa. The ruins made us feel like we were in a building that was bombed in Aleppo in Syria.

Night photo with star trails showing the movement of the stars for 50 minutes, caused by the rotation of the earth. Illuminated by a ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

Un arco de un balneario mineral abandonado. Las ruinas nos hizo sentir como si estuviéramos en un edificio que fue bombardeado en Alepo en Siria.

Foto tomada en la noche. Esteles de estrellas son causadas por la rotación de la tierra durante la larga exposición por 50 minutos. Iluminado por una linterna LED 2 ProtoMachines y una luna llena. No es una creación de post-procesamiento. No hay píxeles fueron perjudicados en la creación de esta foto. 😀

The Night Cloud Salute (4793)
Pearsonville Auto Salvage Yard, Mojave Desert, California. I used a handheld LED flashlight to illuminate the trucks. We had these amazing clouds most of the evening, creating fantastic shapes with or without long exposures.

This is a real photo taken at night. Everything was illuminated by a big bright moon, an almost full moon, almost bright enough to read a book. And setting my tripod-mounted camera to a long exposure made the camera much more sensitive to light than our eyes on this already bright evening.

The moon, which reflects light from the sun, also makes the sky bluer, and when the photo is a long exposure photo, the sky will appear brighter, making the blue more apparent. I also illuminated the junkyard cars with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

 So Please, Oh Please, We Beg, We Pray, Go Throw Your TV Set Away (5116) 
Night photo of an abandoned mining house in the Mojave Desert. Illuminated by a handheld flashlight and a full moon during an evening long exposure. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

This is a real photo taken at night with Dave Dasinger. This evening, everything was illuminated by a big bright moon, an almost full moon, almost bright enough to read a book. And setting my tripod-mounted camera to a long exposure made the camera much more sensitive to light than our eyes on this already bright evening.

The moon, which reflects light from the sun, also makes the sky bluer, and when the photo is a long exposure photo, the sky will appear brighter, making the blue more apparent. I also illuminated the the interior with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and the inside of the TV with a red light while the camera shutter was open, keeping the photo good and dark for a sense of mystery. For the processing, I left it basically alone except that I subdued the colors a bit, desaturating it. I think it looks better that way. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

I am fascinated with how a single long exposure photo can show movements and the cumulative effects of light in a single image, and fascinated with the stories and history that these locations hold. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken

I used a handheld LED flashlight to illuminate the automobile, and then used it with a homemade snoot to hit the front headlights to make them glow a bit more while the camera shutter was open for a long time. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

I am fascinated with how a single long exposure photo can show movements and the cumulative effects of light in a single image. In this case, I took a succession of photos with the intent of blending them together so they would show the movement of stars over almost 20 minutes. The movement of stars is created by the rotation of the earth. This photo is facing north, so the stars are circling around the North Star. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken
