New Release – Last Light

This was the final frame from my night at Joshua Tree National Park. It was taken moment before the moon set behind the mountains, casting the landscape into total darkness.

I spent a lot of the night experimenting in various techniques while using the moon as my key source of light. I thought it would be interesting to use the moon as a backlight to silhouette a Joshua Tree while using a thirty second exposure to enhance the nights stars. Last thing I did was use an auxiliary light to highlight the edge of the joshua tree to give is some color and texture.

New Release – Last Light

As the moon was giving its last light before setting behind the mountains, I was able to fire off one last shot of a silhouetted Joshua Tree before the night when completely dark.SpecsCamera Sony A7rISO: 800Aperture: F2.8Shutter: 30/1
