I arrived at the Grand Canyon hoping to take some night sky photos, star trails, who knows. But there were only clouds, no stars.. At first, I was disappointed.

But with the clouds came the storms. Wow.

Llegué en el Grand Canyon con la esperanza de tomar algunas fotos del cielo nocturno, la estrella de esteles, quién sabe. Pero sólo había nubes, no hay estrellas. Al principio, me decepcionó.

Pero con las nubes vinieron las tormentas. Guauu.

Flashback: Big Blue Bus Burrowing Bottomward (light painting at night!)

How this bus stays up, I’m not sure. I came up here Thursday evening. There were two photographers, Matt and Justin, already here, but they left shortly afterwards for Bodie ghost town in California. I immediately began shooting, a bit dissatisfied with the shots I had taken the previous night, as the moon was blotted out by huge thunder clouds, and everything was very dark, not so conducive for this sort of light painting photography. Tonight was much better!

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. 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 during this evening, the clouds mostly cooperated!

With a nod of gratitude to Troy Paiva and Lance Keimig, who largely pioneered this sort of light painting photography. I don’t do this sort of light painting often, but their two books definitely had an influence on this photo.

I blended this with another photo so I could “light paint” the arch with a Protomachines LED2 flashlight. 2 minutes f/8 ISO 200 2 4000k.

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

Just in time for Valentine’s Day… 😀

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. I stayed here for two nights, photographing the 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.
