After spending a good long day in Hocking Hills (see my previous post), I met up with some Instragram friends, @kellyephotography, @myohioadeventure, and @justnsmith11, to try combing steel wool spinning, light painting, and waterfalls.
Recently I got to spend an entire day in Hocking Hills, from long before sunrise to well after sunset. It was a full day of light and dark, fire and water, and solitude and new friends.
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.
