Like, er, wow – didn’t quite expect that
So, there I was, standing in a field at 23:00, temperature of about 1 degree and hopping about from foot to foot trying to keep warm. I couldn’t see a thing, but above me was a quite glorious night sky stuffed to the brim with stars. Somewhere in the darkness was one of my Bowens studio lights set to full blast and being aimed vaguely at a big windmill. The camera is on bulb and I’m counting up the seconds…It’s all guesswork so after 190 seconds (about the same time my hand goes numb) I let go of the shutter. Fingers crossed it’s gonna look good – but I have to say, I didn’t quite expect this!
