Reality, not DreamworksZOOM] Salt Lake City photographer Royce Bair uses digital cameras and what he describes as a ‘copious collection of portable incandescent and flash lighting equipment’ to capture his unique views of the night sky over Utah’s spectacular canyons.
His shots of Wall Street Canyon at Bryce Canyon National Park with the stars of our own galaxy, the Milky Way blazing overhead showcase some of his technique. Bair has been lecturing on night photography for two decades.
Bair says, ‘My Nightscapes are exposures of the night sky with a landscape feature. All are evening time exposures.’
‘Many are taken with special equipment in order expose the night stars without blurring. Some land features are enhanced with light painting.’
