Nearly the end of another fall semester at the university, and the “three amigos”, aka “the three compadres” (Wilson, Tom, and myself), along with two other very good friends (Robert and Phil), headed off to a nearby lake on a recent Friday afternoon to enjoy a bit of global warming effects in early winter, some brewskis and sodas, and some evening performance art by Wilson and Phil.

Through the use of time-based digital still capture, we take light-energy performance art to an interesting level by incorporating the reflective quality of a still lake and the illumination of a full moon. Various forms of energy emitting devices are deployed during the performance, rendering images not typically encountered during a conventional photographic session of simply pressing the shutter release. Instead, through time-based digital still capture, levels of invisible or limited visible light energy are recorded, which often times reveal a rather surreal environment as we “break on through to the other side”—The Doors.

  1. I love it! All those shots are so cool, but I would have enjoyed seeing a couple of the meteor shower without the light orb.

    Don’t get me wrong….the light orb and energy trails are really incredible! But so is the meteor shower without the add ons.

  2. Richard, unfortunately since I use a low ISO, the meteors did not register on my camera’s sensor. The light orb and star trails were about all I managed to capture that night. Thanks for checking out my work and commenting!
