NaBloPoMo, November 5: Night Photography Fun

These were shots I took during (Canadian) Thanksgiving last month.

The first one is a 30 second exposure of Bob’s Lake, with bottle rockets set off through the shot.

Bottle Rockets, 2

This one was meant to be a shot of the starry sky without the bottle rockets. See that red streak on the right? It’s the tail light from a boat.

I got some of the guys to stand in the light for part of this 30 second exposure, to create the appearance of “ghosts” in the shot.


I just ordered a remote shutter release, so I can take longer exposures and avoid shaking the camera.
