This photograph was taken by my cousin Ben Shockley shortly after I had traded my Nikon for Corona and camp stove. I enjoy the feeling of this image that is very “Surreal”. Ben shot this image off a tripod, and the extra long exposure not only added the motion but also the vibrant colors that in my mind really make this image stand out! Ben’s use of our headlamps and a strong firelight also added to the success of the image. Be sure to keep an eye on Ben’s Work as he continues to develop his photographic style.
