' Starlights of Arcadia '

A 10 hour film exposure........I recently took a 1600km round road trip to shoot a couple of extremely long night exposures in the middle of nowhere and as no digital camera is even remotely capable in this regard my film cameras were the preferred choice on this occasion. Conditions were perfect with relatively clear skies and no moon so I wanted to push the limits to create something special and unique by keeping the shutter open almost the entire night while at the same time gather more valuable info on film exposure characteristics for the future projects I have in mind. Believe me, there are a lot of variables in exposing film for 10 straight hours and with virtually no info on the internet as a guide, the process is definitely one of trial and error. I have had success and failures in the past. This pure form of photography is important to me and far removed from the typical star stacked or multiple image composite commonly seen in landscape photography these days. I personally have no interest in computer created composites and this photography project is about capturing an extraordinary moment and keeping it real, and for me that moment will always be with just one shot regardless of exposure time. © Guy Havell
