Interesting Photo of the Day: 77 Stacked Photos of Stars and Cars

We often try to control everything in our images, but it doesn’t always work out. That doesn’t mean the shot always fails, though—sometimes those surprises can lead to nicer, more unique images. Check out this one, comprised of 77 30-second exposures stacked on top of each other:

Andrew P. Foote snapped this composite shot along a busy road. He removed the airplanes, but didn’t want to bother with the cars, which created a peculiar medley of streaks across the horizon and actually made the image more distinct.

He shot it with a Nikon D610 and a 50mm lens, with an f/4 aperture and 400 ISO. Here’s a little more detail as to how to how he achieved the colors:

“I started with 100 photos and loaded them as layers in Photoshop. I go frame by frame editing out airplanes then choose where to start and end. I deleted the first 23 as I started in blue hour and they were over exposed. (I like having a blue sky in my star trail pictures.) Then I merge layers and it’s done!”
