Wallpaper: Antique Wagon Painted With Light
Wallpaper for January 2012 – Winter Scene At Night
New for 2012 starting with this month, January, Her View Photography will be posting a FREE monthly desktop wallpaper. They will be available for download at the end of each month in the top five most popular screen resolution sizes and proportions. Please select the one closest to your screen size and proportions for the best fit. On a PC, right click one of the links below and then “save target as..”, on Mac, Ctrl-Click. If it’s not quite the right shape or size you may have to choose “stretch to fit”. If it doesn’t look quite right you may have to chose another size that’s closer, check the proportions of your screen.

If you are using a large monitor and have resolution that is larger than any of these options, please contact me and tell me what size your screen is set to. If I get multiple requests for that, or a similar size, I will likely add it for future months.
This month’s image was taken during a recent Night Photography field trip that I did with a few of my students from my last Night Photography workshop (the next one will be in spring). We went out to a farmer’s field, with his permission, and photographed old farm buildings and relics like this antique wagon. We used painting with light techniques that I teach in the class, using flashlights and long exposures to create this effect. I then combined four of the images in Photoshop to get light just right. You can see some of my earlier students images in a recent post.
Also new is the ability to subscribe to this site and sign up for updates, so you will get an email notice when the new wallpaper for the month is available for download. You will also get notices of all blog posts including subjects such as:
- quick photography tips and tricks
- photography tutorials and techniques

- reviews of photography related books, equipment and software
- dates and information on upcoming photography workshops and field trips (Edmonton and area)
