About the Image(s)

Old, rusted, oxidated things are an attractive subject to photograph. Here, it seemed to me a night shoot with a flash light might make an interesting image. I light painted a number of shots at eye level. They just weren't dynamic enough. So, I got down low with the bugs, locked down the tripod and took a series of shots lighting different sections of the old vehicle with the flash light. I think I took about 12 captures. Then I took an extra-long exposure without the flashlight to capture the background.
In PS I put all the shots in layers and brushed in the sections that worked best for the image.

Focal Lenth: 16mm, ISO: 800, 15 seconds for each exposure, f/16.
