Night Vision

This is a photo taken last Saturday night near Contos. I joined Jamie, Kirk and Neal, (the A team) for a bit of drink’n and shooting way into the dark of night. We agreed that we didn’t do this sort of thing much because we are all scared of the dark. At least we are not too proud to admit it. Was lots of fun and I think there will be more of this type of work when the new 5D comes out. Thanks boys for a fun night and the free beers. Hope you guys are going to kick my a@#se with your shots……………. since I was using the oldest camera, and didn’t have a cable release! p.s. thanks to Jamie for bringing his flash and pinging it off for us all night.

  1. Hi Christian, nice star trails + I know a good pharmacist who can help you out with arthritis which you will get if you getting shots like this without a cable release. Christmas is soon – maybe Santa will be kind! Also wondering what type of pens you use to sign your images with? (papers + canvas) Take it easy

  2. Wow that is a great shot. Fresh!

    I wanna come next time. Or you guys should come to John Forrest National Park one evening. Cmon people its a great place! Any takers?

  3. Star trails look supercool and very nice processing…and finally a classic Fletch shot, horizon is crooked 😀

    Any photos of half drunk photogs falling off rocks?

  4. Bugger here I was thinking I’d get in early before Flemo and tell you the horizon isn’t straight and of course, there he is, one entry above me!!!
    Good work Flecher! (and damn you for getting out there so often to shoot landscapes…i’ve done 17 kids shoots the past week!!!)

  10. Michael it was torture holding that button down. I use a silver pen for canvas, sorry can’t remember the brand. they sell them at the post office though. A black fine tipped permanent marker for some others prints.
    Flem I did think it might be a bit out but new you would tell me!! I have a shot of the boys I will post, beers in hand.

    Mel the exposure was about 4 mins I think, will have to check the meta data.
    Sorry Jamie I couldn’t wait!!!
