 The Garden of Pompeii (4135)

A mysterious abandoned movie lot deep in the Mojave Desert. Everything here was very consistently Roman or Greek looking, and the old set location was littered with columns, some standing, some fallen, as well as busts, statues, reliefs, and stands as well as plaster molds. I illuminated the columns while the camera shutter was open with a hand-held Protomachines LED2 flashlight. Thank you to David Dasinger for taking me here. Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8. 300s exposure f/8 ISO 200.

Disarming Dino: Long Exposure Night Photo with Light Painting

 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.

One Tree Flats (5092)
Night photo of a wind-damaged movie set in Antelope Valley in the Mojave Desert. Illuminated by a handheld flashlight near 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. This evening, everything was illuminated by a big bright 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 scene with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 flashlight and the inside of the old truck with a red light while the camera shutter was open, keeping the photo good and dark for a sense of mystery. 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

 Mount Piños Moon Path (4693)

I went camping with my girlfriend and some friends at Mount Piños, CA, near Frazier Park. The campground, McGill, was at about 7500 ft/2286m. Clean mountain air, beautiful pines, onion-cheese-jalapeño soup with sourdough bread, burgers, Coronas with tons of limes, lots of talk and fun, and a half moon to light the night.

Geek stuff: Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens. 25 seconds, f/5, ISO 2000. 14-24mm f/2.8 lens. 2016-09-10 23:20.

Easter Moon – Night Sky Photography, Vasquez Rocks

I  was walking back to my car. I turned around and saw this beautiful view. Immediately I unpacked my gear and took this photo, light painting the foreground and cliffs. Many times the last photo I take in an evening is the best or strangest one.

I wanted to test out my new camera and lens, so I drove up to Vasquez Rocks, about 35 minutes from my house, and experimented with higher ISOs than I usually use.

Title: Luna Pascua
Info: Nikon D610, Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 lens, my Dad’s heavy 1970s Sears aluminum tripod. Exposure time 30 seconds f/2.8, ISO 320. Light painting with a Dorcy LED flashlight. April 20 1:43 a.m. 2014.
Photographer: Ken Lee Photography
Location: Vasquez Rocks, California, USA
