I have so many photos still left from #TheGreatMilkyWayChase but i'm too excited about this one... @MissJessBess, @Megavai and I have been adventuring and exploring in the off days that the moon was full.. Well that meant spending a lot of time in random areas with HOT temps... Yesterday Jess and I started exploring at 6am and found this wonderful arch that we named Meatball Arch; Not sure if you can see why...
---
It was over 109+ by the time we got to the car at 10am with 6 miles under our belts... We then napped and fed ourselves midday while we waited for the sun to go down before returning to shoot this in the 45 minutes of MW we had last night. It was absolutely perfect; weather was amazing and conversation non-stop.. I have decided that Jess is my adventure spirit animal and I look forward to many more scouting and photo missions with her!
---
We lit this with 1 bit.ly/tracyleelumecube 10% off & free US Shipping), one inside the arch and the rest was just ambient light before dark. This is 10 images stacked, focused on the foreground, blended with 20 images stacked for the sky.

I’m still going through my archives in search of images I can use for this challenge.. I have plenty of them! This was from my 2 week journey last summer all over Colorado and Wyoming with @missjessbess @megavai and a few others along the way... we stopped at RMNP for the evening and met up with @xlj_photography for some star gazing and shooting! I lit the rock with my cell phone left facedown on the rock to bounce.
-
This shot was taken not long after sunset; this is a single image with very little editing done to it; no cloning, no brushing, no saturation. I only made adjusting to lighting and contrast and a bit of clarity..

This was edited this time with only white, highlight and vibrance adjustment, as can be seen from the Lightroom screenshots of my raw images before and after editing —->
—
I took this photo (was 10 images stacked for noise reduction on a crop sensor canon) in April of 2017 (and didn’t end up editing till Jan 2018 originally) on a trip with friends to Havasu Falls. It was 5th and final time going to this wondrous place.. Even the friends who were shooting photos came down to watch all of the photographers and participate in some of the shots. That was always a part of our trip to the falls.
—
I used a Lume Cube (bit.ly/tracyleelumecube for 10% off and free shipping) to light the falls from the right side bouncing off part of the embankment to diffuse the light. At the time I was only a little over a year into shooting MW. There was a tree swaying in the wind on the left-hand top of the image which in my first edit I removed and this edit I left in.

So since there's a big stink over photoshopped images on Nat Geo's article with @bethmoonphotography 's photos, I figured it would be nice to show the magazine what we as a photo community are capable of putting out within THEIR guidelines.

This is a photo I took almost exactly a year ago. This is 20 images stacked together strictly for noise reduction and then edited in LR touching only whites, blacks, and exposure as you can see from my RAW image posted here as well. Slide over to see my raw!

Composition, White Balance as well as lighting were done at time of shot.

This was so easy to edit that perhaps I should have been shooting for Nat Geo all along... I hope to see what all of you come up with!! Thank you to my girl @xo_anhie for joining me in Alabama Hills on this particular adventure. We had to tie down our tent with rocks due to wind earlier in the evening.. We got to Mobius arch and no one was there although there was another car in the parking lot. I lit this from the right with a Lume Cube (10% off and free US Shipping use bit.ly/tracyleelumecube) and another from inside the arch.

Who has made a journey for a photo, only to be disappointed by weather? Where to?
—
I will start off by saying, this image is completely a COMPOSITE. For those of you who know me, you know that’s not my normal MO. but after making the journey to this place, to get overwhelmed by rain & gale force winds, I decided for this situation I would do a composite of exactly where the MilkyWay would have risen that night. This was my 5th time coming here, perhaps my last..
-
I took off to Bull frog marina w @missjessbess on Monday around 9pm. We didn’t go to sleep till 730 at the Defiance House Lodge. We woke at 9 to meet up with @jacobthefu & @estherjulee to head out on our journey for the next few days.. thank you @nationsvacation!
-
The hike was a lot sketchier than expected but we arrived around 4pm, just in time to see a rainbow stretch itself across the canyon. it was a battle over set up camp or take photos &photos of course won. We shot sunset, then set up camp, then started shouting blue hour..
-
I only got a few blue hour shots in before the skies opened &it started pouring. I was in a VERY dangerous spot on the slick rock &I also had another camera out in another location. I climbed back up, collected my things &retreated off to the tent that thankfully Jess carried in as we were contemplating leaving it. From 9-4am, the winds howled &shook the tent. I woke up every 30 minutes starting at midnight to see if the wind stopped or the skies were clear. The core was rising behind a thick collection of dark clouds w/ tiny breaks in it &wind was going nuts. by 3 am I gave up &went to sleep until just before blue hour sunrise where we woke up to get more shots
-
Took two more nights for clear skies where I shot this from factory butte.

Pick 1 or 2! Colors are a bit different and crop is too by accident.. what places have you been that make you feel like you’re on another planet? I definitely feel like I’m on the moon when I’m here!
—
This is a STACKED/BLEND I took on Thursday Night in Utah when I was out exploring with @missjessbess @estherjulee & @jacobthefu.. we had already been on the road since Monday and the clouds had messed up the 1st two nights of shooting thus far.. Esther and Jacob we’re leaving back to Vegas by this point, and Jess had a different comp she wanted for sunset so Jacob dropped me off here and I spent a pleasant few hours just hanging out on a blanket, enjoying the last rays of the sun.
—
Jess made her way straight over and we shot portraits on the pedestal, and blue hour before taking a nap in the Jeep..
—
After we woke up I realized that I didn’t have the comp I wanted at 24mm and the Milky Way would get cut off but I think it still turned out ok, right? Jess went back to sleep and I sat out on that cliff for hours shooting this every way I could think of to try and make up for the previous two nights.. then Jess woke up around 4 and we took off to another location for twilight and sunrise...

#FBF #FlashbackFriday so a lot of people have been heading out here as of late. I hear it’s not being treated well and people aren’t being very respectful to the #LeaveNoTrace movement.. it was this hike that caused me to stop ever posting trip reports and blogs about how to get places again. I feel partially to blame for the rumors I’m hearing. I stopped posting locations and I don’t give out coordinates anymore.. I think if a place that’s so remote and this hard to get to can get messed up, All photographers should set an example and practice discretion.. this is still one of my fave photos/Trips ever.. I will go one last time and then look for a new untouched place to photograph...

To this date, one of my favorite photos...

Reflection Canyon.It was brought to public light by a Nat Geo photographer named Michael Melford for a story, Glen Canyon Revealed in 2006. The canyon got "famous" when Apple TV added it to its screen saver in 2012. (I recently learned that Google added an image of Reflection Canyon to IT'S screen saver by another photographer- weird lol) 
In 2010-a photographer name Ranier Grosskopf had seen the article by Michael and arranged to journey to the canyon and created a series of way pojints that I used to follow to get there 5 years later in 2015. I made sure to learn from his mistakes- I paid attention to the water levels in the lake and went there at its lowest level in end of April last year. I posted the images I got & became "friends" on FB and Instagram as a result with @MichaelMelford. He gave me props for making the journey by foot- he had done it by boat. I decided to make this an annual trip &went again last week.

1, 2, 3, or 4? I decided to process the foreground and the sky cool and warmer and see which color combo works best. Thoughts? Cool Warm, CC, WW, WC... (the warm sky isn’t THAT warm but it’s warmer than the cool one)
—-
@missjessbess and I took off for Cali a few weeks ago and this is one of the comps we got. We can hiked out here at about 1am, set up lights and then waited for the MW to crest the horizon. I used a single LumeCube with warming filter on 1% in the arch and a Luxli light set to warm on a tripod at 40% bouncing off the surrounding rocks...

So the other night, @missjessbess and took off to the Grand Canyon in search of this viewpoint we had been obsessed w/ for some time. I didn’t know what it was called, so I pored over maps until I figured it out; we took off to pick up permits from the Navajo Office in Cameron, Az..
-
We walked into the offices at 3:45 pm, but I guess we were wrong and it was actually 4:45; the Navajo nation is on Mtn time. The gentleman opened the door for us and when we asked for a permit, he issued it as well as gave us a map with very difficult directions on how to access the edge of the canyon. we didn’t know that other than us, the canyon had been closed to visitors since May. (we found this out after the fact& even called the office to verify..)
—
We took off to our destination &although made many stops along the way for photos, arrived to the edge of the canyon in plenty of time before the sun went down; we couldn’t see it because of storms but it hadn’t set yet.
-
We backed the Jeep up to the center edge of the canyon where we could sit in the back of the vehicle & still adjust our cameras.. we could see clouds rolling in but we’re hoping they would clear by the time the milkyway rose.. I let a timelapse run while I waited for the next few hours and we fell asleep in the back of the Jeep. About 330 am, Jess moved up to the front seat &I checked my shots for a slight glimpse of the MW.i got nothing good, but as blue hour arrived, so did clear skies! Jess joined me in this very short opp to shoot the Milky Way perfectly aligned almost west at the center of the canyon as the light was starting to brighten the sky. Lower pano I shot at am Blue Hour.

I shot a 2 frame horizontal orientation vertical pano with 20 stacked images in each.

What’s the tightest schedule you’ve kept when shooting multiple comps in one night?—-
This was on Thursday of the @bhphoto #RoadToNAB and I have to give @missjessbess all the credit in finding this particular arch in the hills. I also have to give her the credit for at 315am when shooting the previous arch, motivating to this one in a very short amount of time before being back to where we just left in time for blue hour and sunrise. She suggested it, we hiked out of one place, into this one, and back out again... we made everything in the right amount of time!
—-
I got the new @TokinaUSA 16-28 2.8 Opera Lens to use on this trip.
I used a @luxlilight set on warm tones bouncing off rocks to the left along with a Lume Cube (10% Discount and free US shipping use: bit.ly/tracyleelumecube) with a warming diffuser on 1% up in the arch. I shot the foreground images at 10k ISO and that’s how I got so much detail in the back of the foreground vs how I shot the previous image the same night.

I’m always in search of new comps and this trip on the #RoadToNAB w/ @bhphoto was the perfect opportunity to look for ones off the beaten path.. I took off to Cali with @mrhollender @stanmoniz @missjessbess on an adventure of epic proportions and shot all kinds of fun stuff over 4-5 days.. it was an exhausting trip but I really think I got some cool stuff and it makes me excited for #TheGreatMilkyWayChase this summer!
—-
We were exploring areas of Alabama Hills we had never shot in before and we went in different directions... most arches in the area face east to west but this was North to South so it was perfect for this comp.. @missjessbess and I came back here at 3am and I lit the entire foreground with a @luxlilight from the right with a warm setting at about 30% bounced off the neighboring rocks. Then I put a warm diffused LumeCube at 2% inside the arch which was not a hard climb at all but a little bit of effort to get to... we were a bit of a distance back from the arch too so I shot a focus stack/stacked image (25 sky, 20 foreground) at 35mm on the @TokinaUSA 24-70mm. The clouds were out and caused some serious bloating of the Stars!!

This was the 1st comp of the night and we did about 4-5 more after lol...

I made my way out to Alabama hills after 2 days in the Mono Lake area. @mr_awesome717_photography @KaylaRain and rory were heading out to meet me from Vegas for the final 3 days of the trip. After meeting up with my friends, they followed me back to the parking area for Lady Boot just coming up on blue hour. I was rushing so much I walked out there with all of my gear, sans camera. Take 2, and I had my camera and all my gear set up for the alignment on Lady Boot I knew would be there soon after dusk. 
I started shooting for stacking for noise reduction. I had tried stacking for the 1st time earlier that week and I had somehow failed miserably at it. But, I love the results of a noise stacked image so I have been shooting images for that purpose for weeks. I had bought Starry Landscape Stacker based on Joshua Snow 's tutorials on the subject. I knew I would figure it out eventually. After shooting a while, a guy appears out of the dark. 
His name was Ralph and he was on a 10 day Milky Way journey from San Jose Ca. We all talked about shooting because it's what we love to do and he goes, you should stack your images. And to that I said, I'm shooting to do that now. He asks, what are you using to do your stacking to which is respond, well i'm new at it and I haven't figured it out yet but I am using Starry Landscape Stacker.

The guy yells out, "YES!" and does a little celebratory dance; Dan and I looked at each other in the dark, bewildered. And then Ralph proceeds to tell us that it's the first time he's run into photographers in the field using the software that he created. HE was the creator of the software that I had purchased to stack images! lol What are the chances?

So here is my first successful image using Starry Landscape Stacker. I'm pretty happy with the noticeable difference in noise and results! PS: i'm not paid to endorse the product, I just think it's an amazing coincidence and cool friggin story! It's definitely a cool product...

What’s your favorite part of Death Valley?It’s the time of year when Death Valley’s landscape goes under major changes... this particular year it’s going to have insane changes because of the major flooding they experienced this year... I’m very curious to see when the water dries out of the valley, what those changes are... —-
I took this on a trip last year with @missjessbess and we got blessed with an unexpectedly amazing sunset with such vibrant colors and array of clouds.. I often pass by the non-night images as most know but this one caught my eye and decided to post it...

I just completed a 5 day trip in the Eastern Sierras and boy, did I have a lot of fun and shoot a TON!! I met up with so many friends from Milky Way chasers and met some new friends in the dark. I am not going to be posting/editing in order at all.. Just kind of doing it as the feeling takes me.. This tree we started calling the Zebra tree early on in the evening before it was dark... The colors of it's trunk captivated me as we wandered through the Ancient Bristlecone forest on Monday night. . . .

I had met up with @Mr_Awesome717_photography, @Prevailz & @MatthewSavillePhoto as well as Kayla and Rory who were along for the adventure, and we drove into the Patriarch Grove in the White Mountains. I knew this tree was an early evening composition but it was going to be a gamble to see how perfectly the Milky Way core would fit into the break in the trees. . . .

The gamble paid off and this ended up being my favorite composition of the night!! This is a single image with the moon still up on the right side of the frame. We used a @lux_pro_flashlights to light up the foreground of the tree. This 5 day trip taught me to embrace the moonlight in my images and therefore extended the amount of days I can shoot each and every month!

Ryan asked me to drive that crazy road and boy did I drive the f*ck out of it! We got there just in time for sundown and I missed finding a comp in time to shoot blue hour... so I ended up using a lume cube in my hand and since I didn’t have something to bounce the light off of, I used a water bottle as a kind of diffuser...
