This Miner’s Homestead is located just south of Gold Point, Nevada, a popular ghost town and the location for a night photography workshop that I attended. There were many abandoned homes in the area that belonged to the mining community. Gold Point was a very popular mining destination and it was a thriving community in the early 1900’s. Today it sits mostly empty with only a few residents. The primary economic factor today is tourism. The accommodations are rustic but it was fun spending a couple of days in this historic town.
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/4, 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 fairy string lights. The outside of the buildings was lit by the moon. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
