T. Rex in Bagdad

Gear: Canon 6DRokinon 14mm LensManfrotto TripodRemote Shutter-release and Night-Writer with Green Color-tip.

Astrobandit and I took Route 66 on a whim to see what we could find along the way to Needles, CA - some of that road didn't look like it has been maintained since the 1930's - it was like driving on a never-ending cheese-grater!

Late at night we passed a small ghost-town by the name of Bagdad, it had some interesting junk-cars and even junkier buildings, but there was a large yellow light coming from a construction company that blew-out the spot - not good for night-shooting.

Halfway between Siberia and Bagdad I stopped at this place because there was so little light-pollution and drew this T. Rex second take using my new color-tips for Night-Writer (which are available for purchase starting today)!

I wanted to test out my new color tips at a location where I knew there would be a lot of ambient light - in Los Angeles, that is pretty much anywhere.

This is a place I drive by on a regular basis but rarely stop at - Ruins of Riverside Dr. - newest addition to the light-skeletons gallery.

I've been working on some color-tips for my Night-Writer light-pen. The colors aren't exactly what I want just yet, but with a few more tries, they should be soon! 

Here is the first image I took with what I thought was going to be a red tip - Unfortunately, I'll need to make another that is actually red and not this pinkish hue you see.

Check out the other colors I'm working on below!

With any luck, these will be looking color-accurate and available soon - the way they work is you just plug them in over the recessed LED tip of the Night-Writer and viola! Multi-colored light-art.
