Night photo of an abandoned mining house in the Mojave Desert. Illuminated by a handheld flashlight and 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. :DThis 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 interior with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 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, and fascinated with the stories and history that these locations hold. Thank you for reading this and looking at the image. -Ken
