Super excited to be headed up to the Canadian Rockies again for the 2nd time in a couple months... thank you to @rachel_jones_ross for putting it together and @bhphoto for sponsoring it! Also thank you to @slikusa & @tenbabags for sending out gear for the trip! Keep an eye on our stories @missjessbess @dreamingandwandering @rachel_jones_ross @kelly_mena @charlottelittlewolf @themandagies for this all female photography event! —- This was taken on the shores of Lake Louise. For anyone who’s been there, you know there’s a crazy amount of people around; I had really wanted to go to Morraine Lake but the road was closed for the season... I handheld shot this low to the ground because I love the snow on the rocks at the side of the lake... —- I don’t recall my settings but I will try to update them when I get to my computer! @tokinausa @canonusa 6dmk1 Processed in LR

#FBF #FlashbackFriday to an amazing…

#FBF #FlashbackFriday to an amazing sunset in Yellowstone with good friends.. —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ When we got out of the car, drops were already starting to fall and crowds were leaving the area due to the storm clouds overhead.. we didn’t get discouraged and headed out on the boardwalk with the hopes of the clouds breaking and then completely clearing up for stars later that night... well i love it when a plan comes together like this; we got sunset and clear skies for stars that night... I know I rarely post photos other than stars, but doesn’t mean I don’t take them... I just have to be super motivated by a shot to edit it, and this is one of those shots... the composition was a lot taller than this so I used content aware scale to make it fit for IG’s resolution... it was a lovely trip to Yellowstone with my dear friends @missjessbess @rachel_jones_ross @smpetersonphotography & @brentdangerrose... —— Handheld because I didn’t want to move my tripod from my night composition to scope out the rest of the area; I didn’t know the sky was going to color up like this and spontaneously shot this... —— ISO 100 F11 1/10 second @tokinausa 16-28 @ 22 @canonusa 6dmk1

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday to a hot…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday to a hot summer day discovering new things.. click the product tags to see what equipment I use! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ 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 (use code TRACYLEE10 for 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. --- 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

I got this season started…

I got this season started way too early including heading to the PNW in end of April.. but I had my good friend @smpetersonphotography & @safatajphoto up there so I knew I had to go adventure with them! We spent multiple days chasing across Oregon trying to find clear skies and often got skunked in the process... on this particular day we came across a homestead that had classic John Deere’s and cars all over the property. Well Shaun had no qualms about knocking on the door so we did, and the guy was only too happy to allow us on to shoot photos there.. we went back that night and set up many different comps while we waited for the skies to clear. This was my last one of the night! —- I placed a #LumeCube (click for more info) in each truck and then one from the right front to light this scene. The ones in the truck were on low and close to a wall so they would bounce. I did not have any colored filters on them, so it’s funny the trucks turned out these colors! —- I was standing in tall grass the entire time; did I mention my single biggest fear are ticks???? 😳😳😳 —- ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 16-28 @ 19mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1

#FBF #FlashbackFriday- is it still…

#FBF #FlashbackFriday- is it still closed off from vandalism- does anyone know? - Repost @tracyleephotos: I’ve been wanting to shoot here for quite some time now; even went as far as hiking here in April of last year to scope it out for Milky Way... well, a couple things: 1, it’s not easy to find & 2, once inside even GPS signal seems to not work well.. so this time around I was assuming it would line up like I wanted; thankfully I was right.. —— I had met up with @Ryantoswald on the morning of the 11th day of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase.. he originally was going to head to monument valley but I convinced him otherwise and he joined us on our trek into Canyonlands... We got there around 6 in the evening when it was SLIGHTLY starting to cool off... Even though I knew where to get on trail, I took a short cut following well worn paths, well marked with cairns throughout.. I couldn’t believe how many there were when we cliffed out way too high above the Kiva... when I realized what a disaster the trails were, I made my way towards where I knew the drop in point was, having to back track a ton because of the cliff that we were stuff on top of. —— I have to make a side note; I have no idea where all those cairns came from & am mad at how dangerous it is for people wandering around lost in the hot desert.. can’t believe people put those up as if that’s a real trail... so warning to those who go to visit; make sure to do your research because there is ONE true trail to this sacred place.. —- We shot a beautiful sunset here and then shot some blue hour images before hanging around almost 4 more hours for the MW to line up; this was somewhere around 230am.. we hiked out as blue hour was just starting to lighten up the sky. We walked out NO PROBLEM on the correct trail back. —— I used 3 lumecube.com/160.html (use TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) to light this stacked image and blended in a blue hour image for the background mountains. —— Sky & foreground: 20 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 20 seconds - Background mountains: 5 images stacked in PS ISO 100 F2.8 60 seconds —— @tokinausa 11-20 @ 16 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DM

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday — Repost @tracyleephotos…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday — Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I’ve been on this 2 week road trip all over the Southwest on a night photo mission with @missjessbess and various others along the way... it hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine; but there’s been some very incredible, WOW moments a lot of the times and for that I feel so fortunate... I feel very bad for all the people in all the fires right now losing their homes. I just got word yesterday one of my childhood friends homes was saved in the Carr Fire while her 3 neighbors were not. 😢😢 so happy for her but sad for the people around her.. the smoke everywhere we have gone except Colorado has been insane... —— I took this selfie on Thursday night at Rocky Mountain National Park when I headed there with @missjessbess, @xlj_photography, @megavai & Joe.. Apparently we barely missed @michaelsimmonsphotography1 that night! I kept having to do this shot over because this wasn’t right or that wasn’t right... in the end, my analness about getting my shots made my photo come out much better than I imagined and I feel like I’m walking away with what I would deem is a memorable and EPIC shot in spite of how hard I was being on myself about it prior to getting it on my computer... On location, executing a shot like this is more than just setting up a tripod and a timer. —— Thank you to @tenbabags; I love being a part of the team! This Solstice 24L was exactly the bag I needed to compliment my travel gear! 2 bodies, 4 lenses, 2 tripods, my star tracked and all of my accessories and lights! —- This image is a total of 49 Stacked and Blended photos; 22 for the sky, 15 for me, and 12 for the water... All stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker. I was running out of time so I didn’t set up my lights, instead I took my iPhone with it’s flashlight on and placed it facedown on the rocks. The light bouncing off the rocks was perfect! —— SKY ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds - WATER ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - ME ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds —- @tokinausa 11-20mm @ 20 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday to a beautiful day in Yellowstone National Park shooting with good friends. I was super excited to come here and although I’ve edited very few images from this trip, I have some excellent memories from it! This is a behind the scenes shot of my set up from one of the gorgeous thermal pools in the park. Let’s see if I can motivate to produce this one today! Who else takes shots of their set up like this? I’m kind of obsessed with doing it, lol...

Well, some of you may…

Well, some of you may know that my gear went swimming in the Eastern Sierras a few months back and my dumb ass didn’t put the waterproof caps on my Lume Cubes; you can assume they’re paper weights on my desk now. Christmas came early this year and Lume Cube sent a super awesome care package to me (sorry, been trying to get this video up for a while) and now I’m completely set for on the go portable lighting; To any who I go shoot with in the near future, lucky you!! 😜😜 —- I can’t WAIT to test out the #LumeCubeAir which is their newest set of lights. Stay tuned for my thoughts on them! —- Pick up your own Set of cubes for the holidays and be set for next MW Season at Lume cube.com/160.html and use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping! — Thank you @lumecube SOOOOOO MUCH for the new gear, and thank you everyone else for the support and for watching!! Oh yeah and go give them a follow because they throw contests ALL THE TIME to give these babys out!!
