Default Late Night on the Farm

A couple months back while on an aerial photo opp, I spotted an old truck in a farmer's field from the plane and made a note where it was so last night the moon was full and high in the sky casting it's light the way I wanted it and the time was right.......night time. My inspiration for lighting the headlamps of the truck comes from a photographer friend of mine, Darwin Wigget of Alberta.

I also wanted to do something fun with the moon light as your photos look like daylight when taking long exposures but if you are using any other type of lighting, that light shows up like it should during night shots. My wife and I were texting each other so I jumped in front of the camera and carried on a text conversation with her, taking advantage of the light from the cell phone to illuminate me!

Nice pictures! The first one makes me think "Watch out for Frank" (We have little ones, so I get to watch Pixar's Cars a lot).

Hi Kevin,
Love the first one and the headlights.
The second one is just like daylight but with all the stars and the the light from the phone it's so different. Grrrreat.

Very nice pics. That's a lot of photons coming at you from such a small device.
