Longtime exposure shot of Andi riding the 4X track at 2am! It looks pretty bright in the picture but though he had 3 headlights it's been gnarly going down the hips and berms.
It's a series of about 100 pictures each with a 30 seconds exposure and add together afterwards.

 @ ShastaOutdoorMedia, If you're trying to promote yourself as an artist or as a business, hating on others is generally not a great way to go about it.

 Don't worry, I'm not. I've never even done professional photography. But I do have an opinion.

 Dude, that was NOT made with bulb shooting. It is a serie of 30s exposure pics, put together...

 I'm a shit photographer but wouldnt shooting on bulb by holding down the button long enough to have the stars completely turn like that give you a way overexposed pic?
  • 3 2
 1) you usually don't have to hold the shutter down manually for a bulb shot, 2) the photo will be exposed correctly if you have the right amount of light going into the camera (duh). i.e. if a 30s exposure works out nicely at f/2 and ISO 800, then you can get approximately the same exposure at f/22, ISO 100, 480s. Or you can just do what this guy did and take a lot of 30s exposures in a row and then combine them digitally later.

 @ShastaOutdoorMedia... above you defended yourself by saying you aren't a pro photographer, and then you drop all that technical b.s. to let everyone know how smart you are about photography. Make up your mind.

 Super sweet! I love these kind of shots. I don't know jack about photography but I know what I like (forgive the cliche). Its interesting how people can figure out how shots are created just by looking at them. However, tech skills don't always make a good shot (the converse is true too).

 Hey, startrails should should be working fine, but I used photoshop; simply import all pics as individual layers into one file and use the "add" layer mode
