Killer shot, Mike!! The car and heli ended up being a bonus! Nice Fiero, too. v

Mike McGlothlen replied:

It was a good night, glad you like it!

This is totally awesome. I think it probably turned out better with the helicopter and the neighbor in it than without. Is this in your own driveway? If so, it's a good place to be if you need to photograph the north star! You've got some truly excellent work Mike.

Mike McGlothlen replied:

This was a great house to shoot at, star traces out front and great lightning shots off the back deck. I miss that house. Thanks for looking Gordon!

Artist's Description

I did 5 or 6 of these types of theme star traces. The Long Wait was shot with a Nikon F-3 with a 20mm Nikkor lens and Ektachrome film. Set up 2 hours before darkness with 3 electronic flashes to light me, the car and the foreground. After total darkness I opened the shutter, got into place and used a remote flash trigger to do the first part. I walked over and carefully covered the lens with a dark cloth and proceeded to take down all unneeded equipment. I then went over, uncovered the lens, popped the top on a beer and sat for another 6 hours (&4 beers) to get the traces around the north star. If you look closely you can see the short trace then a blank space then long trace. The blank space is when I covered the lens. I was so mad when a Military helicopter went over and my neighbor drove by a the time, but loved it when seeing the final result.
