Luminosity Type 3:2



Lake Tahoe features some of the bluest, clearest water in North America. Accompanied by sandy relaxing beaches, soaring pine trees and white frosted mountain peaks, Lake Tahoe is truly a photographic marvel. Visitors to Tahoe don't often realize until they take in the view personally that this lake is huge. It's circumference is about 70 miles, and can take at least an hour to drive from South Lake to North Tahoe on winding, narrow roads.
On this trip to Lake Tahoe, I wanted and planned to do more unique and experimental exposures. Although I am always looking for new and creative ways to approach photography, I was inspired by the techniques of another landscape photographer and friend, Abe Blair. I had seen how he set up his long exposures while flying a drone overhead to essentially “light paint” the subject. And with Lake Tahoe’s crystal clear blue water and unique terrain around it, I had to try myself!
