To photograph the Milky Way, you need to be in total darkness. Not so scary if you’re in Yosemite or Joshua Tree, but when you’re in Africa surrounded by predators, it is Stephen King-level creepy! Once I got my tripod and camera set up and turned off my flashlight, every grunt, snarl, or twig snap I heard in the bush….
We posted this shot last week on my Insta and, as always, it gets a lot of attention. I can tell you this, it felt pretty awesome throwing a perfectly good drum kit in a swimming pool! (I channeled my inner Keith Moon). I soon realized the drums would not sink to the bottom as planned, so we punctured the drum heads with a knife to get the drums to fill with water. Problem solved. This was back in the film days so I was using a Nikonos underwater 35mm camera. I shot a test roll and ran it to a local 1-Hour photo lab (remember those?) and realized it was missing something. I called a friend and asked her to grab her bikini and come on over. There she is - in the background. Shot complete.
