Astrophotography is much more appealing if you include an interesting foreground element. There’s an abandoned schoolhouse just 15 miles east of Columbus that sits under a surprisingly dark sky. On a clear moonless night I went to see if I could create a star trails photo there.
We had an unusually heavy fog recently and I went to Blendon Woods metro park to photograph it. I brought along a battery powered LED light I usually use for macro photography and had some fun light painting.
