I photographed this old jeep at Keys Ranch while attending a night photography workshop in Joshua Tree National Park. I wrote about Keys Ranch in a post earlier this year. You can read about keys ranch for that post by clicking here. One of the things I learned during my night photography workshop was how to light paint an object. Sometimes light painting is a team effort and that was the case with this old jeep. I used an LED flashlight with a filter to mimic incandescent lighting to light paint the jeep while team members operated the cameras. I used a different light to light paint the wind mill and the water tower.
I am on my way today to another night photography workshop. This time it is to Nevada where I plan to photograph an Old Ghost Town and old cars. I’m looking forward to learning more about night photography. You can follow my activities on Instagram or view my posts here on my Instagram Page. I am looking forward to posting photos from my trip in the days ahead.
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/5.6, shutter speed at 20 seconds and the ISO set at 1600. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
