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. ūüėÄ

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. ūüėÄ

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

¬†Roamin’ Around The Movie Lot (4123)

Abandoned movie lot, 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 wall 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. 140 second exposure @ f/8 ISO 200.
