I came across this amazing night photography gallery of the abandoned west by Troy Paiva. There you can find 16 sub-galleries of great photos of abandoned ghost towns, communities, houses, cars, signs, etc. Captured digitally using Troy’s unique style and light painting technique, the photos bring us a graphical glimpse of America’s western expansion and evolution history.
If you are interested in night photography and light painting, make sure to check out the techniques page. You can find a lot of great information on equipment, exposure, lighting, light painting, post production, and other night photography resources.
Troy is the authors of many books, such as Lost America: The Abandoned Roadside West, published in 2003, and Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration, publish in June 2008. He also offers night photography and light painting workshops.
