My mate and I were a bit bored last night, so we decide to head out of town and try some night photography. Got some great pictures of the Milky Way and a few just to see what fun we could have with light painting.
This was taken as a long exposure a little over a minute with a LED torch used to paint in the tree. Click through to the article to see more.
This was done similarly to the above shot, but with the camera in landscape.
Again a long exposure with a torch used to paint in the road and surrounds. The slightly warm tone of the sky is from the town lights of Kingsthorpe and Oakey in the distance.
Same shot as the above, but this time we decided to throw our torches out in front of the camera to get the trailing arcs.
My car, taken against the back drop of the Milky Way. Lighting was done manually with three pops from my mate’s Nikon SB600 flash. One from the left side of the photo, one on the right and one behind the car to illuminate the trees.
My mate walking along with his Nikon SB600 triggering it manually at intervals. Gives a cool ghost look with a long exposure.
Finally, this is me. Similar set up to the shot above. Walking along popping off my Canon 430exII flash. In this one my mate was also behind the camera popping his SB600 flash to illuminate me a little more.
