a little bit of trickery. as the heart of milky way is now higher in the sky it makes it harder to position it in one shot, so i was looking at what i could use in the foreground that the camera can be angled higher in the sky. as i was setting up, a cop car went past, turned around, came back and then the cop started asking questions. it did look dodge, parked on the side of the road in a beanie ;-). after he realised i was not a crim, i used him as a prop, he proceeds to drive down the road, turned around and drive past me so i could a take a shot of his trailing tail lights.
this was my second attempt at doing this and waited for some other cars to drive past. on the third vehicle i decided to wait until the vehicle had driven up the road and out of the shot this took about 10 seconds, then i placed myself in the middle of the shot for the next 20 seconds. this gave a ghosting effect of myself and the effect of the car lights cutting me 0.5.
