Noel Kerns is a Texas-based night photographer. If you've been following Noel's Flickr photostream
, you'll immediately know him as the guy who does all the night photography of the Texas ghost towns and abandoned Texas gas stations and packing plants. Noel's work runs the gamut of colored gel light painting, soft white light painting, and ambient moon light.
"One of the things I enjoy most about photographing under a full moon are all the latent details, those things which reveal themselves to you only when you let the moonlight take the time to tell the story."
Wow. After pursuing night photography for twelve years, why couldn't I have come up with a killer quote like that?
The shot below is one my favorites because it blends the ambient glow of HPS from a nearby town, with just a touch of hand-held lighting.
