I was out in Ouray, CO for a landscape photography class with Charlie Waite. There were several in our group which had spent some time working on night photography. We spent one evening with their assistance learning the technique. Wes Grimes suggested we attempt a group photo with the Milky Way as our background. We planned to use our normal exposure for the stars and then add flash to light up the group. Our exposure was 25 seconds at f2.8, using an ISO of 3200. We bounced one light into a reflector to the left of the camera. The fast flash then froze the movement of the group. We had to change our focus from just under infinity to about 8 feet for the group. Still I believe this technique has merit. My plans are to try this technique with soft boxes so I can better control the light on the subject. With a group like this, I would use two soft boxes on either side, aimed at the respective far edge of the group.
