Looks like an ad Jeep Cherokee. Nicely done!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at Ka'ena point on Oahu, Hawaii.
Time
About 10pm
Lighting
I light painted my Grand Cherokee with my iPhone 6. Originally we went out to photograph the Milky Way and the mountains but I got bored and attempted to shoot the car.
Equipment
Nikon D4, Zeiss 21mm, Gitzo Tripod with RRS head
Inspiration
No real inspiration just boredom with what I was photographing. I'm
Editing
Very little post processing. What was done was added some contrast and increased the exposure of the sky to match the Grand Cherokee
In my camera bag
Honestly depends what I'm shooting. The equipment I do own is as follows: Nikon D4, D750, Nikon 16mm fisheye, 21mm Zeiss, Nikon 24-70, Nikon 50mm f1.4, Nikon 70-200 VR2, Nikon 200mm f2, Nikon 105mm f2.8, Panasonic GH4 with Metabones speed booster for video and timelapse.
Feedback
While I'm not an expert on capturing the night sky, the basics are shoot wide open around ISO 3200 depending on the aperture of your lens. You don't want too long of an exposure as you will get star trails. Best advice is go out try it out if it don't work try something else but just have fun with it. Aloha!
