Santa Barbara Blacklight

    Newer Older

    Experimenting with new toys... this one's a small battery powered blacklight we used at Burning Man.

    What a great night for shooting! Friday night we had these wonderful clouds - extremely rare in Santa Barbara (probably only 2 or 3 nights per year have both clouds and a moon full enough to shoot by). They are usually blown inland or out to sea by the evening winds. But these remained until well after midnight...

    More where this came from!
