Story behind the photo: I went to photograph this shipwreck at sunset, and at night with star trails. However, typical Oregon Coast weather showed up and it was overcast all night. I decided to improvise, and used my spotlight to illuminate the ship from the inside with a 30 sec exposure, just as the tide line reached the ship (for reflectivity of the water). The sky to the left is orange from the city lights and is dark to the right from the ocean.

Awesome image, Jeff. It certainly paid off coming back later that night, as you said you were going to. Had fun shooting with you at Peter Iredale.

Fine, very fine. I wonder if you can post your gear.


Did you use just one speedlight inside the wreck? It was on tripod? How did you trigger the flash?


Thank you for replying...

Thanks! I used one light, it was 5,000 lumens. The camera was on a tripod on a self timer, and I ran to the inside of the ship to light it with my spotlight. No camera flash was used.

The rays moving out of the wrek are simply perfect! I'm going to use the "inside illumination" idea as soon as I'll get the chance to do it!!
