Here is a new image from Delicate Arch in Arches National Park Utah. The park has some incredible rock formations matched with a vivid night sky. Its a simple and very well shot composition, however I really wanted to bring my own take to the shot. I hope you all enjoy the image. 🙂

This is a composite of 6 different images, a base image for the stars at ISO 6400, f/2, 15 secs, several light painted exposures at ISO 1600, f/2.8, 10 secs and a long exposure for the midground at ISO 3200, f/2.8, 7 mins to bring in some detail in the distant rocks and mountains, all with a Sigma 35mm f/1.4. Blended using lighten blending modes and luminosity masks. Who else has made this hike at night?

For me, it’s all a delicate balance that I love to show off in my photography. This image was captured at the beginning of twilight (before sunrise) from Delicate Arch during one of my night photography workshops in Arches National Park.
There is a lot more to this post… see the rest of the backstory, how I got the shot, and get free wallpaper from http://ift.tt/UchNG3.
Night photography workshops are going really well and I only have room left in one final workshop for 2014. If you’re even thinking about a night photography workshop, check out the details now before these spots are gone.

One of the many images from my night at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. It was an interesting shooting experience for me. Most of the time when I shoot the Milky Way I am alone or with one other person, we usually do not run into any other photographers during the night. At Delicate Toby and I shared the space with over 15 other photographers who all wanted a turn to “light paint” the arch. It made it had for me, as I usually shoot with only ambient light. If I need more light in the foreground I will usually try to do long 2-5 minute exposures. Overall it was a really great experience, the wait for the spot to be empty was incredibly worth it!
