The other night I went out to the Bonneville Salt Flats in western Utah to capture some star photos. I planned to arrive just before sunset to capture that event, and I knew there would be some time post-sunset before the sky was dark enough to capture photos of the stars and Milky Way. So I brought up some toys to photograph. I thought the white Salt Flats would make for a perfect setting. While taking the photos, I illuminated the scene with my LED light in two ways – keeping the light in one position during the exposure, or moving it around to eliminate harsh shadows. So my one shot, two ways worked perfect for this week’s The Daily Post at WordPress.com’s photo challenge.
Canon 60D | 57mm | 6″ | f/29 | ISO 400 | Roaming LED light
Canon 60D | 57mm | 6″ | f/29 | ISO 400 | Steady LED light
Both photos are cool in their own way, so it’s hard to say which of the two is my favorite. Do you have a preference?

Cool idea for the challenge. Reminds me of the work of David Levinthal.
