Interesting Photo of the Day: Long Exposure in the Woods

What are you more afraid of: fast cars or woods that look haunted? The following photograph by Scott Wilson is a smooth combination of speed, a ghostly touch, and creativity shot at Cypress Tree Tunnel in Northern California. The place in itself is quite amazing as the trees form a tunnel-like structure through a good stretch of the road:

“Long Exposure Into the Haunted Woods” by Scott Wilson (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.)

Wilson used a Sony A7RII body with a Rokinon 14mm lens at f/11, 30 seconds, and ISO 200. Although he has not elaborated much on how the photograph was taken, we can anticipate that he used a flash with the camera set to front curtain sync to freeze the car first and then capture the trails later. Also, to expose the trees properly, he could have painted them with some light.

    Yooo thanks for featuring this! This was a collab with a friend Vince (ig handle @Vinc3__, his works amazing). Actually there was no flash or light painting involved. Vince didn’t move the car for the first 5 seconds of the exposure and drove with his fog light/brights on for the shot to light up the tree tunnel!
