 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!

Geek stuff: Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens. 2016-07-17 283s f/8 ISO 200.

Sometimes I do not want to have light painting on the main foreground element in a composition because I want it to have a certain emotion. The dinosaur sculpture was created by Ricardo Breceda. The camera is facing northwest.
