Isn't this site enough about me? You still need to know more than you already do??

So last night I jumped…

So last night I jumped an @americanair flight to Puerto Rico for #RGGPuertoRico put on by @RGGedu... I knew that the flight was going to put me right on a collision path to see the MW from the plane as it was rising so I checked into my flight hoping to score a window seat on the south side of the plane near the wing... —— Success!!! I packed my tripod on my carry on, threw my intervalometer in my purse, and had my camera ready. I also had my sweatshirt to cover the window from the cabin lights... —— I took 189 shots just to get 4 images in a row that I could stack; turbulence is your enemy in this process! —— Everyone asks what the flight attendants said. They really didn’t say anything in spite of me spending a good hour and a half with my camera against the window and me hugging the window with my sweatshirt... —— I filmed video of my process the entire time too so I could put together a quick tutorial. Stay tuned! —— ISO 12800 F2.8 6 seconds 4 images stacked in SLS for NR Processed in LR @tokinausa 11-20 @ 16 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #americanair #americanairlines #longexposure_shots #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure

Made a stop at Polaris Window yesterday while hiking for hours through the desert in the morning looking for fun compositions to shoot the stars last night... it was pretty cool to just explore with no destination in mind.. thank you for the photo and adventures @missjessbess! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

I have so many photos…

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 lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for 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. --- Foreground- 10 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 800 F6.3 30 seconds - Sky 20 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds - processed in LR & PS --- @TokinaUSA 11-20mm @ 16mm @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 --- . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #longexposure_shots #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #arches #meatballarch #arch

On Night 7 of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase,…

On Night 7 of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase, we made our way up to The Crystal Mill... it was quite a trip up a narrow 4x4 road and when we arrived a very intoxicated photographer was up there hanging out to shoot the stars as well... I shot some blue hour foregrounds before settling in for a nap... when my alarm went off a little after 10, startled, I stumbled out of the car to check on my comp and get my star shots going and at some point ended up falling so bad that I still have a bump on my arm 3.5 week’s later... —- This shot is 25 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR... the lighting is a combination of LumeCube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) and a Mag light that the drunk guy had to cover the distance across the water... I had shot all kinds of shots to blend foreground and sky, ended up changing my comp, and ended up with this stacked instead... (which makes my life easier in post of course!) —— ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR —— . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #longexposure_shots #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #crystalmill #marbleco #marblecolorado #coloradooutdoors #outtherecolorado #coloradorockies #colorado_photographers #colorado_creative #coloradogram #coloradotography

On the 20th night of…

On the 20th night of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase, @ryantoswald and I got away from the cold of the Mammoth Lakes area and headed to the desert to shoot Trona Pinnacles.. —- We hung out in Ridgecrest to wait out the 108° heat before heading to Trona after sundown... we got some time in editing at Starbucks. —- We drove the entire loop scouting our comp for the night, planning for a late night moonset.. we had the place completely to ourselves save one other car.. I left a time lapse running and then went to sleep for a bit and then realized I planned wrong so before the moon completely set, I grabbed a series of these images... —- 20 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds @canonusa 24-70 @ 35mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR —— . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #tronapinnacles #trona #ridgecrest #395north #395
