Behind The Lens

Location
Somewhere deep inside of Arches National Park, after a short hike (with no clear path at 4am in the morning).
Time
It was 4am and sometime in the Fall. We slept in the car until the meteor shower started.
Lighting
I’m not much of a night photographer, so getting this shot was a challenge. I timed my sleep schedule with the peak of the meteor shower and then used a flashlight to highlight the arches.
Equipment
Sony A7S with a Rokinon 18mm, 2.4 I can’t remember the flashlight used but it was nothing special!
Inspiration
When I heard the largest meteor shower in years was approaching, I wanted to find the perfect location. Arches National Park seemed like the best spot.
Editing
I took two exposures, one of the sky and one of the arch. There were many meteors that night and a few helicopters, so I photoshopped out the helicopters.
In my camera bag
Now days I carry an A7Rii, 16-35 4.0 Zeiss, 55mm 1.8 Zeiss, and 70-200 4.0.
Feedback
Keep trying. It takes patience to get the lighting and timing right when it comes to night photography!
