  • Actually, I had almost never heard off this country.

  • When I was doing some research online, I was really drawn.

  • Uh, I wanted to explore it.

  • In Kyrgyzstan, you drive through areas with very interesting Kenyans.

  • You come to really empty plains where only some shepherds live.

  • You know, I wanted to see places that almost no one has been through.

  • And here I also marked some spots like right next to the road, you see, so I can lift the drone here.

  • And so it's also very close to each other.

  • You know, when I checked this, I didn't know that this part, if it's a road or rich or very actually, yeah, and you can drive there.

  • So during the day, we usually scout around, do some shots with the drone.

  • I use Google Earth, but also planning apse for my phone and for the computer Milky Way three o'clock this direction during the night.

  • I will then go there to photograph them.

  • Oh, the fun thing.

  • And also the challenging thing about these shots ISS that we planned them together and we execute them during the night.

  • It's pitch black and its around minus 10 degrees.

  • See thin.

  • If you would send here mhm, it's also nice.

  • Yes, like this.

  • Yeah, good In these canyons, there's a lot of interesting structures, and you can really play with light.

  • We're using teamers headlamp to light up this rock, which we actually called the iceberg, and it gives a really magical effect.

  • It looks really like a science fiction poster.

  • We also brought in old oil lamp that we would use to light up a scene, and it gives a very nice soft light result in the frame.

  • The scenery is they offer so much possibilities for night shootings.

  • But the end result is not only the picture.

  • You see, it's the whole experience that we had taking this picture.

  • I could fly the drone and see top down.

  • Very interesting contrast between the landscapes, amazing textures from the sky.

  • On most of the roads, you can just stop, get out, take the shot.

  • Seems like this.

  • They're totally unplanned.

  • Sometimes you will get great shots just from that through my images, especially from a place like this that not that many people have seen.
