Last night I took the John Deere Model A out for a few photos. There was a bright moon, so I thought it would be neat to see how the exposure would turn out. I think there was a little too much light though as there weren’t many stars in the photo. However, it was pretty cloudy so I don’t know if it would have mattered much anyway.
To create the shots, I had the camera on a tripod and and did a 30 second exposure with my 5D Mark II. On the one on the left I also hit it with five seconds of light off of the LED flashlight from my iPhone. I think the results turned out pretty well.
Summer evenings can seem nice and relaxing–at least untill farming starts again. But in the meantime, I’ve been enjoying the beautiful Star Valley summer evenings. Here’s just a few photos for those of you who have been wondering just how nice it really is. I would have loved to have camped out tonight and taken some beautiful shots as it got darker and darker; especially with the bright moon, but the mosquitos were so thick that I quickly gave up and just kept driving. Hopefully they won’t last long this year…
I spent some time two nights ago and took some more shots for all you who were wanting some more valley shots. Farming started the day after, so I decided to take the opportunity while I had it. Click the “read the rest of this entry” link to see the gallery.
