Fun Friday: ‘The Outburst’

While preparing for my next art show (early October in Lee’s Summit, MO … more info to follow), I began playing with my images I captured of the Perseids meteor shower this past August in the Badlands NP. With the large moon, meteors did not show up nearly as well as when the moon is much smaller. So, I began picking several images and compositing them into one image. Here is the final product I came up with:

Perseid Meteors fly over the Badlands NP

After finalizing this image, I placed an order for some to take to my next couple of art shows. I will be adding information to my website soon, on my two upcoming art shows.  Likewise, I will be adding information on a one-night class in “Photographing the Night Sky”, that I will be teaching in October.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Rokinon 14mm, f/2.8 manual lens
  • Bogen 3221 tripod, with ball head
  • ISO 3200
  • Aperture f/2.8
  • Shutter 30 sec.
  • Nine images were composited into one image, via Photoshop CS5
