We went into the Badlands the other day with some photo enthusiast to learn how to shoot at night. Since we have the moon up right now and the milky way is not visible we concentrated on using the moon as a source of light. After photographing a Juniper Tree with the moon in our back I decided to shoot right into the light.
This image was taken with my Nikon D800 and I used my 14-24 lens. My aperture was set at 18 and I exposed for 30 seconds. The cameras ISO was set at 1250.
And of course we painted the tree with our headlamp. If you look closely you see the stars in the sky as well. See more about Night Sky Photography.
Just to keep us all up to date on the demonic upchucking, head spinning, bone snapping contortions of Exorcism/Possession flicks, here are couple of entries and one must-see...
The Exorcist II: the Heretic
John Boorman’s (Deliverance) effort to add insanity to the overall feel of this flick succeeds, however it does not succeed in telling a coherent story. Worth a look for Richard Burton’s over the top performance which is a laugh riot
Exorcist: The Beginning aka Dominion
Before they exhausted all the demonic trimming from this worn out franchise Paul Shrader (American Gigolo/Affliction) had to put in his two cents in an attempt to tell a prequel. This abysmal creep-fest is another testament to Shrader’s troubled soul and scattered focus: a boring mess.
Not scary enough to be good and too serious to be "so bad it's good." The gab-fest generic possession story goes beyond absurd and way beyond caring if it makes sense or not. Using the same material as Possession, this debacle is a horrid piece of symbolism and illiteracy. The Unborn's verbal nonsense, which tries to set the film up as a Jewish Exorcist, is enough to numb your mind. Most people will only sit through this atrocity waiting for the next jolt-scare, vicious blue-eyed-fang-face, unexplained slimy tentacles to squirm out of a wall or the next barf scene
