Eyes on Orion
Photographer: Wil Abeling
Location: Badger Creek Park, Van Meter, Iowa
Taken this spring while out for evening connecting with nature. While the first quarter moon was high overhead, I took two headlamps and shined them towards Orion. I used the self timer to start the camera and then walked into the scene.
Digital Alterations: 
the exposure was increased slightly, but otherwise no alterations. The light pointing towards Orion was created by using 2 headlamps on my head, while I looked at Orion for the 30 second exposure. The shadow that is cast on the ground of me was created by the quarter moon that was overhead, just out of view of the camera, over Orion.
Camera Information: Canon 70D with wide angle lens.
Special Equipment:
