The buildings in Gold Point Gold Street were the primary focus for me during the first night of the Nevada Night Photography workshop that I attended last week. Some of the buildings were original dating back to the early 1900’s and some were replicas or rebuilt from the original plans. The street lights presented a challenge but I used them to my advantage in this photo. I lit the inside of the buildings with tea lights. One of the things that attracted me to this scene was the big dipper over the buildings. The constellation is hard to see so I enhanced those stars so you can see them a bit better. For me they were clear when I viewed them while there.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 20 seconds and the ISO set at 4000. I used a tripod for this photo. I lit the inside of the buildings with some tea lights. The outside of the buildings was lit by the streetlight nearby. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
