One of the many faces of Lennox Point. These photos are a collection of long exposure images taken using moonlight as the lighting source.
The exposures varied in length from 15 seconds to over 2 minutes.
Moonlit, Long Exposure photography
Long exposure with fill lighting by iPhone torch
The lighting of the tree and branches at the top of this image was created by simply waving my iPhone torch over the area during the 30 second exposure. I’ve used the branches in this composition to knock out the brightness of the full moon.
The image above was taken over 2 minutes and 11 seconds. You’ll notice that the stars tend to trail even with 10mm focal length. The longer exposure creates the stillness and smoothing of the water.
With the right exposure settings night can be made to look like day with the assistance of moonlight. Yet you still get the creamy water effect and the bonus of stars in the sky.
