Love the light painting method. I have just began to try some methods with it but need some more time. With your camera, what ISO do you use if you don't mind me asking? BTW, the sharpness of the foreground subject rocks. You can really see that you took your time and I'm sure live view helped
No not at all. I've been shooting night shots for a couple years but it is near impossible for me when I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am pretty excited considering your article in Outdoor Photographer was my fav from this last month.
That is one heck of a capture, I have to admit, it gives me a sense of Vertigo when looking at it, and it really has almost a 3D look and feel to it, that is some serious impact when a shot can have that kind of effect on the viewer
Wow, you gotta look really close to see those "odd lines"! Just a few airplane lights that I forgot to clone out before I posted the image. Thanks!
The strong red edge occured because I went behind the rock and back-lit the sandstone fin for a bit, to add some rim lighting. Totally intentional on my part but up to you and the rest of the viewing public whether they like it or not.
Huh, funny, it was one of the first things I noticed. Probably because of my young eyes, give me 15 or so years and I'll be missing flaws like everyone else, haha.
I think the reason the rim lighting bugs me is because it forms such a sharp edge, is it possible to get it to spill out a bit? Might also be because of the medium file size though...probably looks a lot better full sized.
very nice, its amazing how much color you can get at night using a headlamp, all i have is a led flashlight for the time being but im looking into getting a headlamp in the near future for this purpose
