1. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Joshua Tree

    Location: Lone Juniper and Balanced Rock - Joshua Tree National Park, CA.

    Settings: F16, ISO 100, 20 second exposure.

    This is a very popular time-lapse spot to shoot in Joshua Tree. The first time we visited, there was already someone set up from this vantage point with a slider, two tripods, an emotimo, etc. Luckily, when we returned the next day, it was vacant and I was able to write out this new addition to my Postcard Project series.

  2. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Milky Mono Mylo

    Location: Mono Lake, CA.

    Settings: F3.5, ISO 6400, 15 second exposure.

    In case you were not already aware, I run a company called ‘Danger’ and it features three characters that always get into danger (of course). We sell tees, tanks, hats, sweaters, and prints.. Soon toys! Here’s one of the little dudes, Mylo - I made out of sculpy clay and bring him on our adventures. He’s sitting on a tufa here with some stars in the distance. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  3. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Parasaurolophus

    Location: Sand Harbor - Lake Tahoe, NV.

    Settings: F13, ISO 100, 191 second exposure.

    After the sun sets, most light-painters know about a window of opportunity called ‘blue hour’. It’s a time where there’s just enough light to give the sky an ombre look and color most of the landscape blueish-purple while still being dark enough to light-paint a 3 minute exposure. The time is always ticking, and you only get a few shots where the conditions are just right. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  4. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Lake Lovers

    Location: Lake Tahoe, NV.

    Settings: F3.5, ISO 6400, 15 second exposure.

    We were discussing what animal I should light paint at Lake Tahoe and then the answer walked right past us in the form of a Raccoon. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  5. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Otherworldly

    Location: Mono Lake, CA.

    Settings: F3.5, ISO 6400, 15 second exposure.

    What a strange place to visit. During the day it’s weird enough, but at night this spot gets colder, the wind dies down, and the stars come out. Mix that with a pack of coyotes howling in the distance and you’ve got the start of a great sci-fi horror film. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  6. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Lake Tahoe

    Location: Sand Harbor - Lake Tahoe, NV.

    Settings: F14, ISO 100, 62 second exposure.

    What a great spot to watch the sunset. Bats were flying around everywhere snapping up moths in the sky during this photo. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  7. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Waking the Giant

    Location: Red Rock Canyon - Kern County, CA.

    Settings: (Composite) Light painting at F5.6, ISO 100, 290 second exposure, Milky Way at F3.5, ISO 6400, 15 second exposure.

    I did some traveling over the weekend and hit a few awesome spots that I’m excited to share images from over the week. The first of which is at Red Rock Canyon, an area in Kern County off the 14 highway with some interesting geological formations that work great for pitting against the starry night sky. The landscape here looks similar to a giant strip of bacon in the desert. (via DARIUS TWIN)

  9. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Cage Rage

    Location: Griffith Park - Los Angeles, CA.

    Settings: F7.1, ISO 100, 113 second exposure.

    This is one of those places that probably won’t exist forever, and several parts of it are now fenced off since the last time I was there only months ago.. It’s a bit of a liability for the city I suppose, former animal cages rusting on a park hillside where teenagers climb, graff, and do drugs. Glad to get some shots in while I can, it’s a weird piece of LA history. (via DARIUS TWIN)

  11. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Creepers

    Location: Griffith Park - Los Angeles, CA.

    Settings: F5.6, ISO 100, 298 second exposure.

    This image has a funny story to go along with it.. I was out shooting alone at the Old LA Zoo last night, which is a creepy place to begin with. The first spot I went to was the old monkey jail, where I saw a few people out on night hikes while I shot. Then came along a guy in a white shirt.. I heard his footsteps first, so I turned around and said ‘hello’, he said ‘hi’ and walked by. Later I walked to this spot and began shooting again, when two people walked by I said ‘hello’, they said ‘hi’.. Then proceeded to ask if I saw a guy in a white shirt walk by. I said ‘maybe, why?’ Then they told me that he was a creeper and he was following them. They ran away but they weren’t sure if they evaded him or not.. But if I was shooting here and he wasn’t creeping already, then I was probably fine. I told them I was going to keep shooting here whether or not a creeper was present. I think they were just spooked. (via DARIUS TWIN)

  13. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Blastoff

    Location: El Matador Beach - Malibu, CA.

    Settings: F3.5, ISO 3200, 15 second exposure.

    I think if the Milky Way was this visible, more regular people would be out at night. Until the atmosphere thins and all light pollution is finished off by some earthquake, I’ll be out here shooting 15 second exposures trying to capture the stars as I see them. Most don’t have the motivation to go for an hour drive just to hike around in the dark and shoot at the sky, I’m glad we do. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  14. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Plateosaurus

    Location: El Matador Beach - Malibu, CA.

    Settings: (Composite) Light painting at F7.1, ISO 100, 190 second exposure, Milky Way at F3.5, ISO 3200, 15 second exposure.

    Something about jagged rocks jutting out of the coastline speaks to a more primal Earth for me. The Milky Way is like icing on the cake. I went with the bi-pedal herbivore ‘Plateosaurus’ this time around based on a recommendation from @ClairePdF on Twitter. *Click image for printing options. (via DARIUS TWIN)


  15. DAILY LIGHT LEAK: Lake Like Love

    Location: Convict Lake - Mammoth Lakes, CA.

    I chose to post this image because it’s calming and peaceful to me. The clear water and soft ripples make me think of swishing water, a gentle breeze and leaves rustling on a warm day. Wishing you a good weekend, wherever you may be. (via DARIUS TWIN)
