Same burnt-out diary as the last couple of posts, but from the outside this time. 201-seconds under the full moon. Lit with 2 colors from one spot: from inside the building, behind the slim wall between the door and window. I bounced red off the floor and ceiling to give the room some ambient glow, and purple out […]
The fire-ravaged dairy (and melted ’56 Chevy), along Highway 58, near Tehachapi, California (at the “S.S. Minnow”, for you frequent travelers). 118-seconds, fisheye at f/8, under the full moon, with 3 colors (from 7 directions), from the Protomachine flashlight.
Fractured phone pole and prisoner barracks at Boron AFS/Prison, abandoned in the Mojave. It was late, about 1:30. Everyone else in the workshop had left, so I sat down and relaxed out of the wind and did this hour-long, pure moon-and star-light stack. I don’t usually like to tie up my camera for this long, […]
Downslope from the prison cafeteria, the hill subsides. The retaining wall and Joshua lean deeply, the effect enhanced by the fisheye lens from a foot off the ground. Yellows and greens from the Protomachines flashlight combined with the full moon, during a 135 second exposure.
On the last night of October’s secret alumni workshop, I took the group on a field trip to the abandoned AFS/Prison at Boron. A bit more tagged and mauled since last summer, but still highly shootable. Free-range workshopping (ie: not inside a junkyard for the night) was a new experience for me, but everyone loved it. 146-seconds under the […]
A selfie from July 1989. Back to the very beginning . . . this would be from the first time I ever experimented with synced strobes. One of those “What happens if I look into . . . OW!” moments. Done in broad daylight, 1/60th, with gelled green and pink strobes. Looks like I was already exercising my […]
I found the TV fascia in a nearby abandoned building and threw it in my back seat, knowing I’d find a place to shoot it later that night. Weird how it’s been melted, huh? Just a couple of years ago there would have been virtually no lights in the distance of this shot. The encroachment […]
