Incredible Photography-Starry Oregon Skies
Ben Coffman spends his nights capturing the starry skies of Oregon, and the results are astonishing. The Portland-based photographer frequents Crater Lake and other iconic Oregon vistas during odd hours to achieve awe-inspiring, long-exposure shots showcasing the Milky Way.The effortless natural beauty displayed in Coffman's work isn't captured without difficulty. Before venturing out on a shoot, the photographer researches moon phases, weather conditions and the amount of man-made light present in an area. Once in the field, freezing nighttime temperatures, gear malfunctions and even startling noises from the blackness can all complicate the process. But for the artist, it's all worth it for a chance to "take a deep breath [and] let the darkness close around you."
