OK, I’ve done two weekends of test shoots at Turrimetta and learned some useful techniques. I feel I’m ready for a more serious night shoot.
I just bought a neat little torch from Surefire, these things are very cool. Very small, very bright, rechargable and have a 5000 degree colour temperature, so I shouldn’t get any colour casts when I do some light painting.
This weekend The Old Man and I are headed up to an interesting location, we are going to up to the Old Blast Furnace in Lithgow. I went there about a year ago and took some shots like this one.
The conditions look good. Full moon rising 30min after dusk, fine weather (I hope we get some clouds).
Going to shoot sunset, then dusk, then night, then sunrise.
Hopefully I will have some half-decent images to post next week.
