I’m an addict, and I…

I'm an addict, and I...

I'm an addict, and I admit this... It wakes me up all hours of the night, and beckons to me.. And I willingly go.. This particular night was a Wednesday and somehow I talked 3 of my friends into joining. One who was interested in partaking and two who were just along for the ride.. We decided to head to Valley of Fire again, to "Quench our thirst".. --- I had spotted this composition on Friday night when I was out shooting the Milky Way.. I would love to have a MW comp here, but it's a star trail one that's possible. Initially when I researched the cabins, I didn't think any composition was possible due to the mountains behind.. --- My girl @kaydenphan is an aspiring astrophotographer so she was a part of helping me to light this image and also time the shooting.. I had 3 of four of my LumeCubes registered to the app through Bluetooth and the 4th I used as a constant light on the mountain behind the cabins. I put a lume cube in the 1st two cabins, and then lit the outside with the third. The lume cube on the lowest setting was way too bright for the length of time we were shooting. So I used the app with each cube at 2% power and turned off each cube at the 5, 6, and 10 second mark.. This obviously took quite a bit of testing to come to those numbers but as you can see it worked out well in the end.. --- The foreground is 8 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker.

I am going through a...

I am going through a bunch of images I took last year to try and get some together for something being announced this week.. And I'm finding some really cool stuff!! --- We took a trip out to a secret spot close to Vegas last may and spent from sunset into the night exploring and shooting. I had set up my very 1st timelapse that started shooting before the moon set, as the Milky Way was rising. Therefore I was able to stack for Noise reduction and then blend a foreground and sky image into this shot here.. I had very little idea at the time how well the MW was going to line up with these rocks, but as you can see, it was perfect! In fact the settings for the foreground, were exactly the same as for the sky.... ______ ISO 1600 F2.8 25 seconds 10 shots for foreground and 10 for sky Processed in LR, PS & SLS Tokina USA 11-16mm 2.8 Slik USA tripod ______ . . . . . #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeospace #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #tracylee #mstracylee #lasvegas

I guess I forgot about...

I guess I forgot about this photo.. Sitting there edited for almost a year and just never posted it!! Lol --- This was taken last May at Reflection Canyon at Sunrise. This was after staying up late night shooting the milky way.. You have to really want it to get to get here... I keep seeing trip reports about people going out here and it's not pretty.. This hike is NO JOKE and you have to be SUPER prepared to do it because there's no shade, lots of sand, and no water unless you luck out and it's recently rained and you happen upon a pothole to filter from. --- I have a blog about my 1st trip up here: bit.ly/reflectioncanyon. My 2nd trip I never wrote my blog about it but we had some really unprepared people on it. When I go again this year, i'm gonna be super selective on the people who go... --- ISO 100 F22 1/15 second @Tokinausa 11-20mm 2.8 @slikusa tripods Processed in LR & PS ---- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #mstracylee #artofvisuals #agameoftones #illgrammers #travelphoto #naturephoto #naturephotography #ig_clouds #awesomeearth #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix #awesome_shots #awesome_globepix #awesomeshot #awesome_captures #awesome_photographers #awesome_naturepix #awesome_earth #awesomepix #earth_expo #earth_shotz #earthcapture

I'm holed up in LA...

I'm holed up in LA right now through this crazy storm so I started going through my portable hard drive to find some unedited photos. I found this single image i shot in July when I went to the International Car Forest of the Last Church in Goldfield Nevada with @saolybensonphoto.. we lit the various art installations around the area and then wandered and shot the night away. This was prior to me shooting for stacking for noise reduction so this is a single image right before the moon started to rise.. I used Saoly's 5d Markiii with my @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 and my @slikusa tripod. I'm winging it on the settings but will edit later if they are wrong. ____ ISO 3200 F2.8 20seconds Processed in LR & PS ______ #milkyway #milkywaychasers #NatGeospace #nightphotography #night_excl #nightphoto #nightimages #globalcapture #supreme_nightshots #tokinausa #slikusa #ig_shotz #ig_shotz_le #igpodium_night #rsa_night #insta_worldz #long_exposure #waycoolshots #tokinausa #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #nightpix #altaca #sacafterdark #tracyleephotos #sliktripods
