Ain't nothing but a stranger in this world.

This one needs to be seen big. It also needs to be 16-bit, but alas alas alas.

 

So I took this crazy ass roadtrip. It was awesome. It wasn't what I expected in the slightest because of a last minute addition - namely, my amigo Ben. In the end, it was great to have company and someone else to drive and put up with my special blend of crazy.

 

Anyway, I shot some long exposure shots, which, I know, is super uncharacteristic. I have a fancy new tripod now - one that can actually support the MII - so star shooting it was. This was a 57 second exposure and I'm pretty pleased with how still my model stayed. ;) Strobist info: iPhone to subject's lower right to illuminate the face. Or to tweet. Whatever.

 

I don't love 57" because the stars moved just enough to make them look blurry. I don't think I could have managed a shorter exposure, though. And longer would have resulted in some movement, I'm sure. That said, this picture is just as neat as I hoped it would be.

 

I didn't shoot as much as I'd have liked, but there are so many photos that I love love love. Expect to see them up here soon. And the analog, once that gets processed and whatnot.
