Catching a Falling Star

Inspired by Howls Moving Castle.

After an arduous trek up a mountain that nearly killed me (these photoshoots always remind me how unfit I am!) I reached this stunning location in the Peak District, near Ladybower Reservoir. The sunset was perfect for what I wanted, and after waiting for the lighting to be just right - I got into position, and took the photos I required.

I used an LED light to illuminate my face, with the camera on a tripod with an intervalometer remote.

The image was then processed in Photoshop, where I composited several photos together, and then added the visual effects. I have a video on my YouTube channel that walks through my process!
