Amazing thread - hadn't seen it before. Wish I had a buddy who would be interested in getting out at night.


Canon EOS 70D: added a Canon M5: A mixture of Canon, Sigma, Tamron and Tokina prime and zoom lenses, a Samyang fisheye, and just for fun a couple of Helios 44-2 58m..

Moon rising over the inversion at RMNP. My daughter and I drove/hiked up to about 12000 feet to get on top of it. Very surreal.

The south towards the milky way had clouded over but the north was still clear enough to shoot

Not as good as some on here - but still learning the techniques to get good shots and living in a city the skies are too bright - having said that, this was taken overlooking Loch Tay in Scotland- but still had a fair bit of pollution.

These are amazing. To OP, how did you light up the foreground? I mean the land. I tend to have a good sky but pretty dark ground.

Thanks vienhuynh. I'm not sure which shot you're referring to and every situation is different. Referring back to my OP, the first shot was taken during a setting full moon, so it provided the foreground light. The second shot had at least three different light sources, but the City of Colorado Springs was behind me and the light pollution it provided did a nice job lighting up the foreground. Plus, the full moon had just set behind the mountains and bounced a nice diffused light off the clouds. In the third shot there was no moon and we lit up the foreground with lanterns and flashlights.

Treat the moon as you do the sun in a sunrise/sunset shot and work with it to your advantage as much as possible. When there is no moon, the night sky is at its best, but light painting far things like mountains is impossible. Often you can go out when the moon will rise or set while in the field and you can get both shots and merge them together for the best of both worlds. Light painting is an art and takes practice. Using multiple shots and stitch them together (if you have the PS skills) makes things much easier in the field. As with anything, practice makes perfect.
