I shot this several years ago, and since my car was totally beaten up by hail, I decided to use my dad's car for this scene.
When I composed this shot, I really wanted a sliver of a crescent moon in it, but of course there was no moon out at the time. Even if it had been, it would've looked too small in the image. So, I set the camera to not advance the film and took the shot.
After checking the moon position charts, I went out a few days later at 4 a.m. and zoomed in on the moon so it would look the correct size in comparison with the horizon, and then I double exposed the film for the moon. This was the first time I tried this technique, and I was pretty pleased with the results.
Of course, with the advent of the digital age, this could've been done very easily with Photoshop, but there's something about doing everything in camera that really appeals to me.
