Night photography

Had the opportunity to do some night photography with local photographer John Aho.  John  has developed a technique where he uses battery powered LED’s to light up a scene in unique ways.  He strategically places these boxes that he designed and built so that the scene takes different looks at night.  Then, he uses a giant “searchlight” — which he also developed — to further highlight specific areas.

Once all the lights are in place, and the composition is set, you take a long time exposure (usually around 20 seconds) and during the time the lens is open he uses the “searchlight” to give additional emphasis to specific areas.  The results are quite interesting.  Here are some of my shots, taken at the Drover House in the Arboretum.

Took this picture a few days ago during daylight.
