Created for Richardson Living magazine as cover art to celebrate the city's suburban mid-century modern architecture, this image is a composite of nearly 40 different exposures. The shot was set up before sundown and continued for nearly two hours. Each element was lit with flashlights and a hand held camera strobe. The actors had to hold their pose through two separate ten second exposures. The glow from Sodium vapor streetlights made the sky a murky orange, so I substituted a sunset sky I had shot ten years earlier in California. Likewise, the trees and lawn were not in great shape, so I filled in using tree shots and lawns from my personal image library. Ordinarily I don't like to retouch images so heavily, but because of the deliberate artificial mood of the photo, retouching seemed appropriate.

I haven't seen one of these in decades! Only anachronism: the lady's skirt is too short!

Love this! Reminds me very much of the work by Eric Curry. He creates scenes using Painting with Light. Well executed shot. Well done
