Portrait of a Nocturne
At this year’s Night Photography Festival at Mono Lake, Instructor Scott Martin "felt compelled to make portraits of the photographers themselves instead of the ghost town [Bodie]."

On his Blog, he explains: "These are 1-2 minute exposures by moonlight where I’m adding light on the subject with a flashlight (not a flash!). Since I prefer side-lighting from two sides with a handheld flashlight, it was challenging for the subject to keep still during the light painting and throughout the rest of the exposure."

We know it was challenging - on both sides, the lens - but worth it! Click on the Blog link above to view some more of the "usual suspects." Enjoy . . .
