Blending Day and Night into a Single Photograph

With over 20 years of professional experience, photographer Stephen Wilkes is well known for his fine and commercial photography. With many awards, honors, and five important exhibitions in the last five years alone, it’s very plausible you’ve already come across Stephen’s incredible work.

In the series called Day to Night, Wilkes took hundreds of pictures over the extent of a day (some shots took up to 15 hours), carefully adjusting the shutter to allow for precise exposure as the sunset. To take the images below, Wilkes blends about 50 images into one unbelievable large-format panoramic.

The images below do not do justice to seeing these works in-person, as the final output was 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 one of the High Line as part of a shoot for New York Magazine back in 2009. [Source: Photo District News]
