Nite Shoot Experiments, Nov 10, 2015

November 10, 2015  •  1 Comment

Out in the desert southwest of Phoenix, late into the early morning hours with two Canon 6D's. Some shots are 14mm, some are 35mm - both are amazing Rokinon lenses. Anybody who does night photography will quickly see the many errors of my ways here. This really is an experiment on several fronts. Overall I'm reasonably pleased with the results, but I've already figured out some of my mistakes and won't make them the next time around (hopefully soon).

The first the images are still shots, taken while the other camera was capturing time-lapse frames. I switched between the cameras for a few hours - while one was capturing endless time-lapse frames the other was doing still frames. 

 

Nite Shoot Experiment 1 Still pretty light - the sun was about to go down.

 

Nite Shoot Experiment 2 The sun had set and this only looks like such a bright frame because it was a 20 second exposure.

 

Nite Shoot Experiment 3 I almost didn't keep this photo because it's just not that dramatic, and the milky way wasn't captured very well. But.. I still like it some. 

 

If you look very carefully, you'll notice (probably not on your phone, but on a computer) I captured a few North Taurid meteors. The meteor appears on one frame, then for the next couple frames there's a poof of smoke that drifts away. I really wish I could have captured that with a longer lens, but the chances would be one in a million.

Can you believe the amount of air traffic?? Just never stops...

Awesome! Love how you can see the stars move as the earth rotates.
