Blending Day and Night into a Single Photograph
With over two decades of professional experience, photographer Stephen Wilkes is well known for his fine and commercial photography. With countless awards, honours and five major exhibitions in the last five years alone, it’s very possible you’ve already come across Stephen’s incredible work.
In the series entitled Day to Night, Wilkes took hundreds of photographs over the span of a day (some shots took up to 15 hours), carefully adjusting the shutter to allow for proper exposure as the sun set. To create the images below, Wilkes blends about 50 images into one incredible large-format panoramic.
The images below do not do justice to seeing these works in-person, as the final output were limited edition, gallery prints sized at 30″ x 40″ (76 x 101 cm) and 48″ x 60″ (122 x 152 cm). The first photograph in this series was the one of the High Line as part of a shoot for New York Magazine back in 2009. [Source: Photo District News]
