 Mojave Jet Stream (4821)
Pearsonville Auto Salvage Yard, Mojave Desert, California. 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. 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 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. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken

 Still Life (4832)

Pearsonville Auto Salvage Yard, Mojave Desert, California. I used a handheld LED flashlight to illuminate the car, and then used it with a homemade snoot to hit thehead lights with a yellow light to make them glow a bit more. 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. 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 also illuminated the junkyard car with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight while the camera shutter was open. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

“I Guess I Should’ve Known By The Way You Parked Your Car Sideways” (9787)

Joshua Tree National Park holds many strange mysteries. One such mystery is the collection of half-buried old cars. Night photo. Illuminated by a ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon. 291 second exposure.  The photo also hows the movement of the stars over a long period of time, created by the movement of the earth.This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 😀

Gracias a Prince. Respeto máximo.

Joshua Tree National park tiene muchos misterios extraños. Uno de esos misterios es la colección de coches antiguos semienterrado. Foto tomada en la noche. Iluminado por una linterna LED 2 ProtoMachines y una luna llena. 291 segundos de exposición. Esta foto muestra el movimiento de las estrellas durante un largo período de tiempo, y se crea por el movimiento de la tierra. No es una creación de post-procesamiento. No hay píxeles fueron perjudicados en la creación de esta foto. 😀

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!
