Pano taken at an aircraft boneyard in Arizona in February 2015.
This aircraft boneyard was pretty dreamy and so were the skies. This evening was a fortunate combination of golden light breaking through during a storm.
I'm hanging out in a hotel room in the the desert, staying cool while the world melts from the 100 degree temps outside.
I wish I could say I've been night shooting recently, but the last time I took my camera out beneath a moon was in March, when I shot an aircraft boneyard with the two guys (Mike Hows and Joe Reed) I'm shooting with tonight at a car junkyard.
I can't wait.
Aircraft boneyard, Arizona.
Taken last March in Arizona during a night photography workshop with Mike Hows and Joe Reed.
(Night. Full Moon. Lit with LED Protomachines LED2)
A Titan II ICBM missile on display at the Titan II ICBM Site 571-7 in Arizona.
The Titan II ICBM was in use from 1962 until 2003. This particular missile was designed to hit a target over 9,000 miles away and cost over $3 million per launch.
One of those most challenging spaces I have photographed in the last year, but also very rewarding.
Earlier this year, I took a night photography workshop in Arizona taught by Mike Hows and Joe Reed. It was a really great time hanging out in this airplane boneyard catching up with old friends. If you’re looking to do a night photography workshop I’d strongly encourage you to check out one of theirs. They get access to rad locations and have a great laid back and “hands on” teaching style.
While in Arizona last weekend, I played with the ProtoMachines LED2 light and all I can say is damn!
This light has 9 different brightness settings, saturation control from 1-100% as well as RGB color control.
The image above was shot from two different angles at a low brightness setting, while using a blue and white color.
There is something about walking around aircrafts at night that makes me very happy.
