4762_kenlee_2016-10-14_0203_barstow-143sf8iso200-halloransprings-shack-1000pxChicken Shack (4762)
Shack in the Mojave Desert near Halloran Springs. Illuminated by a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon.

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 also illuminated the structure with a handheld LED flashlight while the camera shutter was open. This is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed during the creation of this photo. 馃榾

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

I front-lit and back-lit the famous Arch Rock in Joshua Tree. Illuminated by a ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and a full moon. 19.5 minute second exposure in total (“stacked”). The photo shows 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. 馃榾

Photo: Flow Cave Miner’s Dugout (light painting night photography)

9022kenlee_2015-11-24_1909_267sf8iso200-4000k_alabamahills-flowcave-closeup-1000pxThis is a miner’s dugout in a flow cave that I found particularly intriguing. It looks like a strange planet in “Star Trek: TOS”. I asked about the history in a group devoted to the Owens Valley area, and someone replied, “My dad, who worked for DWP told me that they used these to store the explosives while building the aqueduct to Los Angeles.” All illumination and colored lights were done with a handheld flashlight during the exposure, and is not a post-processing creation.

Valentine’s Day: Sally’s Bordello, Gold Point, Nevada

Just in time for Valentine’s Day… 馃榾

One of the old mining cabins of Gold Point in Nevada. I lit the interior with a speedlight with a red gel to give the feeling of someone still working long nights. It took quite a number of tries to get this just the way I wanted it to feel. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation.聽I stayed here for two nights, photographing the聽town, enjoying the beauty, and eating delicious food that Herb and Sandy serve. I loved this experience, and hope to return someday. These ghost towns and mines are a part of our rich history, and I am fascinated by the stories they still have left to tell. And these voices seem to whisper a bit more at night.

Ice Cream Truck Star Trails: International Car Forest of the Last Church, Goldfield, NV

I stacked this image, creating star trails just shy of four hours. I used Triggertrap to control my D7000. I forgot to put it on airplane mode or I would have gotten more than four hours. Oh well.
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.聽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.
