Light painting on Delicate Arch, and Milky Way stars - Arches National Park. Main light from camera left: 1-million candle power incandescent (reflected for control). I rarely "light painting". Instead, I often used strategically placed and controlled lights, like you would in a studio.
Virtually all my NightScapes are ONE exposure (less than 30 seconds), and with little Photoshop correction --mostly to increase contrast. Watch the NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another! For more how-to and behind the scenes information, visit my Into The Night Photography blog. You can order PRINTS here.
