Here are some shots from the recent Vision West photo club walk in Virginia City.
Here are some stats for the night:
Moon rises: 1
Temperature: 15 F (that’s what it felt like)
…unfortunately the temperature won. So I didn’t get too many shots.
Go ahead, click on that sunset cloud picture above.
It was amazing.
That is a combo of 5 images to create a nearly 180 degree view of the sunset overlooking the Eastern Sierra Range.
(the range on the east side of Tahoe)
The image below is of the Virgin Mary statue outside of St. Mary’s church in Virginia City. I uplit the statue with a flashlight and 2 red gels.
This is a 10 sec exposure where I focused in tight on her face and then slowly zoomed out during the exposure to get the ghostly effect.
This one was about 15 seconds.
Obviously you need a fantastic (translation: $$) tripod.
