From Beth about this image:

Went up near mount hood outside Portland, or. Near the cabin was a dry area of creekbed of the Sandy River. I used an amazing app called Photopills that let me use augmented reality to see what parts of the night sky would show up where and at what time. We went back out at the time the app said the milky way would be visible just over the mountains. I set up a tripod with a speedlight behind the model and took a series of photos trying to figure out the sweet spot for exposure time. I believe this one was 20 seconds, the flash is at 1/4 power and about 2 feet behind her shot straight into her back.

I used photoshop to composite the floating hair ends and to remove some bits of brush and shrubs that were distracting.
