    Pretty cool work. mind sharing how you go about combining multiple exposures?

  • Hi drec, and thanks.
    Combining of the images was completed using Photoshop, and using a ‘lighten’ blending mode for each image/layer. Also a little arranging of the order of the layers to suit.

    Striking image (pardon the pun)! Is the lighting a combination of several shots? :-)

  • Hi Jennifer, and thanks.
    It’s a total of seven 30 second exposures, during a six minute period.
