Beautiful nightscape by @nowjourneys
part 2 of opportunistic photo to multi stage idea progression to create a quirky art piece - discussion... tag #opportunity_to_art_new_milky_way
so here we are again, creating that quickly art piece. in the first part we discussed the opportunistic photo with the old roofless house and the fireplace and chimney alignment to the beloved milky way. now we go a step farther and introduce what i call a two step thinking.
we decide to make the dead fireplace alive again and what we do? we use fire. real men use fire and not some kind of a low level light c**p or even worse an iphone flash light. we carefully place a candle or a fire starting brick on a stone and cover it up with more stones to make it look like a wood burning fireplace. hot damn! that fireplace chimney is spitting out milky way! get outta here! it cannot be happening!
3 shots are used here. one shot of foreground with no light, but long expo to reveal texture. one foreground shot with the fireplace going. and one shot for the sky. all done with d850 and 14mm sigma art.
but this is not quirky enough for us yet. next we will introduce the subject!
