The Forest Rangers Tower

A decommissioned fire lookout tower in the "Maginim" Forest.


To get this shot, I placed one radio activated strobe on the tower floor, facing upwards.

I set my camera on a tripod, and dialed in an exposure long enough to do some light painting.

Once I released the shutter, I manually triggered the remote strobe, then painted the tower with a three low powered shots from a hand-held strobe. Simultaneously a friend, holding yet another strobe - ran around firing low-powered bursts at the trees in the background.


You can read the whole death-defying story of the shot on my blog.
