Another night photography image from the Hidden Valley area of the Joshua Tree National Park. It was taken as part of that evening’s assignment for the night photography workshop that I attended earlier this month. It was an interesting evening for night photography as we had some clouds in the area but I think they worked in my favor. The only light painting I did was on the three plants in the foreground. I placed my iPhone in the middle of the plants to give them a bit of back lighting. The rest is natural lighting from the moon.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 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 5000. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
