I was completely baffled by this assignment. I had some ideas but nothing was inspiring me. I had been out four times this week from about 8PM to anywhere until 4AM. I went to Phoenix, Tempe (climbed a huge rock), Apache Junction, and in Mesa in my own backyard so to speak, it was a vacant lot near where I live.
I choose the photo below because I am amazed at how much detail the photograph has of the stars but I know from personal experience that a 30 second exposure with have stars shift in the sky and there is no shifting in these photos. Photographer Royce Bair must be using an exceptionally high ISO. I would also think that an very large aperture would be required too but everything seems to be in focus with no shallow DoF to be seen. I am stumped to say the least.
