first, huge thank you for all the supportive comments on my last post. i honestly wasnt begging for compliments. i was mostly thinking out loud. so many beautifully curated pages... and im posting a milkbath shot next to the Michelin man. but, i appreciate the encouragement to continue to post my heart. So.... here's what Penelope and i found last night. horrible night to shoot stars, very cloudy, very big moon. did that stop me, nope. basically, i had a willing companion, i wasnt going to waste a yes. played with iso and exposure to grab the crazy arms and use the clouds as a background. amazed how the cloud layer acted like a giant lightbox. learning everytime i pick up my camera. so...night shot, no stars, no moon... still a success?
