Comet Hale Bopp by John Moran

Wow! 

Now and then I will discover the work of another photographer, and I feel obliged to urge other photographers to investigate their work.  I just encountered the work of Florida based photographer, John Moran and I urge everyone to check out his website at http://www.johnmoranphoto.com

John was a photojournalist for 23 years in Gainesville.  He photographed comet Hale Bopp in 1997 and produced this stunning image.  Oh yea, this was before digital!  If you would like to know how it was done, head over to http://www.strobist.blogspot.com – hint:  it was all produced with a few dollars worth of hardware and a couple stobe lights,  a five minute exposure – and quite a bit of patience and ingenuity!
