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.

Este es el “dugout” de un minero en una cueva flujo que he encontrado particularmente intrigante. Parece un extra帽o planeta en “Star Trek: TOS”. Le pregunt茅 acerca de la historia de un grupo dedicado a la regi贸n de Owens Valley, y alguien respondi贸: “Mi padre, que trabajaba para DWP, me dijo que ellos utilizan estos para almacenar los explosivos mientras que la construcci贸n del acueducto de Los 脕ngeles.” Todas las luces de iluminaci贸n y de color se hicieron con una linterna de mano durante la exposici贸n, y no es una creaci贸n de post-procesamiento.
