Leave the lights on for me

Had a great night shooting out with Miles (mm767cap) last night, just a heck of a fun time. If you ever get a chance to shoot with him, DO IT! He's a great guy and an awesome photographer.


We got a great sunset and wonderful clouds as the light faded, but what we really came for was the stars! The night sky cleared out and we shot one good LONG exposure.


I'll admit that this is a little different than the typical landscape stuff I do, but I had such a blast shooting this I couldn't help but post it! :-) There's nothing quite like trying to keep a low profile while shining spotlights and firing off flashes at night. Plus, I got to see Miles dive and hide behind a tree when a truck drove by (hey, I was hiding too)! Next time I'll remind him not to wear a neon blue shirt.
