Last Saturday my Old Man and I threw our swags into the 4WD and headed up to the mountains for a planned evening of night photography. It was a full moon so we figured the old Blast Furnace at Lithgow would be a great location for some long exposure work.
Got some interesting images.
This first one was a 12 minute exposure… my longest yet. I jumped down into the basement of the old gas works and camped out there in the dark to get this image.
We were lucky in the fact that a bunch of clouds finally came overhead to create some drama to this image of the ruins.
Starting to feel like I am getting the night photography sussed out… I’ve got a routine going to calculate exposures and to compose my shots and I seem to be making the captures correctly (hardly any noise and the amp glow hasn’t posed a major problem).
I love the pace of night photography… lots of time to think and plan while the shutter is open. My new torch seems to work well, so I’ll have to start doing more painting with light.
