Split Point Lighthouse_Night Sky and Flare_Aireys Inlet

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 lens

The above image was made during a night shoot immediately following on from the practical component of a landscape photography course I’m currently running. The day had gone so well that all participants were happy to hang around for the unplanned nighttime shoot.

It’s amazing what can be achieved through a little effort, experimentation and fun. The above image of the Split Point Lighthouse at Aireys Inlet was made with my camera firmly fixed to a (borrowed) tripod (thanks Steve). Car break lights added extra illumination and color to the surface of the lighthouse.

Initial image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2. Adobe Photoshop CS5 was employed for final contrast and color adjustments, to emphasize the stars add create the (fake and) fantastic light flare.

I hope that, likewise, the combination of fun, play and ingenuity leads you to very creative results.
