See, I do composites! #TBT…

See, I do composites! #TBT to a time when all I did was shoot sweaty naked UFC fighters... this was a composite of @DanHardyMMA I shot in a Gym, with an HDR background I shot at a stadium at USC... I get a lot of people thinkIng I’m anti Composite.. I just want to state that I’m not, I just choose not to do them in my night photos for the most part. I admire others composites all the time! —- . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #earthdeluxe #fantasticearth #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #canonbringit #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #tenbabags #shimoda #shimodadesigns #tenbatough #hoyafilter

When we got out of…

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 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #sunset #sunset_pics #sunsets #bonnevillesaltflats #sunset_stream #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset_hunter #sunsetlover #sunsetlovers #sunsetlove #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee

#FBF To a Death Valley…

#FBF To a Death Valley adventure... —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ This was part of my side trip to Death Valley a few weeks ago with my girls @saolybensonphoto & @kaydenphan... we shot the salt flats with the moon over it and then raced to Zabriskie Point and ran up the hill to try and catch the moon before it set so we had light on the hills... we BARELY missed it so I had to shoot separate foreground images... we weren't up there very long but we were fighting wind the entire time.. --- I shot 15 images for the foreground then stacked in photoshop, and 15 for the sky and stacked in Starry Landscape.. --- Foreground - 15 images ISO 6400 F2.8 30 seconds - Sky - 15 images ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds - @tokinausa 11-20mm @ 18mm @slikusa 634-CFL @canonusa 6dmk1 Processed in LR & PS --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #badwaterbasin #saltflats #deathvalley #dvnp #deathvalleynationalpark #deathvalleynp #deathvalleynps #photopills #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #starrylandscapestacker

Right after this video we chased that storm! I had this box from @tenbabags I wanted to open so we took it to the other side of the tracks! Watch this for photos and video of what’s in this box from Tenba Bags, who is the parent company for my other bag, @shimodadesign! Im excited to use the #Solstice24 (the design is super slick!) for when I don’t need a backpacking pack, and the #RoadieRoller for when I fly! —- Thank you @tenbabags, thrilled to be a part of the team!! Thank you @missjessbess for filming! —— . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #earthdeluxe #fantasticearth #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #canonbringit #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #tenbabags #shimoda #shimodadesigns #tenbatough

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I didn’t go…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I didn’t go here this year because I’ve been on tons of other adventures.. who’s made it down this season? —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ This was from my April trip to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon.. The waterfalls are such a popular destination that I have been 5 times now... I don't know if I will be going again this year but seeing as I never edited a photo from last years trip that didn't have me in it, I decided to do so today... This was lit by a single lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) from the right. I was with a group of 20 friends I had organized and i ended up hiking about 55 miles in 2.5 days trying to explore and shoot the Milky Way around all the falls there... Who has been here??? ---- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds 10 images stacked in SLS for NR @TokinaUSA 11-20 2.8 @SlikUSA 634-CFL @CanonUSA 70d ---- . . . . . #tokinausa #slikusa #rsa_night #landscape_captures #beautifuldestinations #amazingearth #earthdeluxe #earthpics #earthpix #fantasticearth #earthmagic #earthcapture #wonderfulplaces #havasufalls #havasu #havaupai #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik

Friday night had me and…

Friday night had me and @missjessbess in Bryce Canyon at Milky Way Point... with the moon in this phase you have to strategically plan your foreground lighting... so we decided to shoot sunset, then moonlit foregrounds, followed by milkyway after the moon went down. Then Milky Way w/ Lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) lit foregrounds.. Followed by Milky Way and then blue hour foregrounds and then sunrise... this was the most efficient use of all hours of the night to get the most compositions except the one thing that threw a wrench in the works... the CLOUDS!! —- We got all our foregrounds at all the designated times but were stuck waiting in between for clouds to clear out.. but that meant we ended up with a BANGER sunrise!! All in all, we got 3-4 MW comps, an ok sunset and a killer sunrise.. and NO sleep.. that’s what we Chasers do though, right?? I don’t mind a little clouds because of bloated stars!! —- This was the middle comp of the night using Lume Cubes to light! 20 stacked images.. —— ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds —- Processed in LR & PS @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 —- #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

So the other night, @missjessbess…

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 and even called the office to verify..) — We very happily took off to our destination and 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 and 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. I LOVE how prominent Mars is on this image because of the clouds! Lower pano I shot at am Blue Hour. — I shot a 2 frame horizontal orientation vertical pano with 20 stacked images in each. — SKY: 20 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - Foreground: 20 images stacked ISO 100 F11 1/13 second — @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @ 16mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR & PS — #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory

Our trip was supposed to…

Our trip was supposed to be about Milky Way last week and it ended up being inadvertently about storm chasing. @missjessbess and I met up with @milkywaymodel and @_ChristianLoya and took the very sandy journey out to White Pocket for the night. We were hoping that it had rained enough for their to be pools of water for reflections but we weren't so lucky.. --- I had spotted this comp on my last trip here in November and we got equally as skunked last week as we did back then. We had 50mph gusts rocking us and our tripods as we tried to shoot our Blue Hour foregrounds.. The skies were clear but it was a race between the clouds and the Milky Way and the clouds took the checkered flag as the light was dimming out of the sky.. --- I can't believe that this image still came out as good as it did considering how bad the wind was and how hard I was holding my tripod down and squeezing my eyes shut! The lightning wasn't striking out of the clouds so best I got was them glowing brightly... I used @photopills before it was dark to verify what time we would need to shoot this for MW... This is a blend of multiple exposures, stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker ---- Sky 20 images ISO 6400 F3.2 10 seconds - Lightning 1 image Sky 20 images ISO 6400 F3.2 10 seconds - Foreground 10 images ISO 400 F2.8 30 seconds ---- @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 @CanonUSA 24-70 2.8 Processed in LR & PS —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #arizona #whitepocket #thewave #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #lightning #stormchasing

So this was a very…

So this was a very interesting night.. we got to kanab to meet up with @milkywaymodel to go shoot, but since she wasn’t feeling well, we took off to find a comp without her.. —- We had delayed too long chatting before we took off, didn’t pay attention to the weather and drove almost an hr out to toadstools. When we stepped out of the car and lightning struck above our heads, we realized we could no longer see the Milky Way and had driven into the heart of the storm. We hightailed it out if there and back towards kanab... @missjessbess had known of these abandoned buildings along the way so we decided to check them out. Milky Way had long since disappeared behind the clouds so we were left to storm chase at this point; something neither of us are very experienced at.. —— We walked through fields of cow shit to get to this saloon and set up our shot.. All sorts of weird noises were coming from the field next to us which worried us (and I had my SIG in my pocket too) but we got to setting up lights and shooting photos before the storm caught up to us.. I kept hoping the clouds to the south would clear so I could get Milky Way and lightning but no such luck. I used a lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) from the right to light up the building and placed one (very carefully) in the front door of the saloon... —— This image is 2 shots blended for the lightning strikes and 2 shots stacked for the foreground from the same exact location.. I always want to stack more than that but I couldn’t decide whether shooting the lightning was more important or running shots for the foreground. Turns out I did things just right; as Jess came back from running to the car (and getting lost on the way back) lightning struck directly overhead and rain started pouring and we grabbed our shit and ran back to the Jeep! —— Foreground 2 images stacked ISO 6400 F5.0 30 seconds —— Lightning 2 images blended ISO 400 F5.0 30 seconds —- Processed in LR & PS — @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 — #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube  #lightning #tempestchasers #stormchasers
