Did a short backpack into...

Did a short backpack into White Sands National monument and camped out in the dunes with my brother & my niece. @crystal_lee and I did a bunch of photos in her birthday dress-and they came out awesome; can't wait to share! Thanks for this photo, Crystal. --- Camping out in the Dunes was an AWESOME experience. If you ever get a chance to do it, is $3 a person for the camp site, and you're locked in the park all night. You have to hike the dunes about a mile with your gear but it was really easier than expected because the sand holds together well if there are no prints. --- It was so peaceful and silent out there, it was like our own personal playground! I really can't wait to go back with more time out there. And less clouds! --- #whitesandsnationalmonument #whitesandsnm #whitesands #adventureismydrug #livealifeworthliving #mstracylee #tracylee #adventuretracy #tracyleephotos #peoplewhodofunstuff #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #adventurers #adventurer #adventureiscalling

Ok, I’ve been waiting for…

Ok, I've been waiting for...

Ok, I've been waiting for this to happen ALL NIGHT (and I think we're gonna hit 5k on the group in the next day or few)!!! And here's what I just posted on MWC Instagram about it: Wow. 100,000 followers.. I can't believe it! The last seven months has been an absolutely blast going through some absolutely breathtaking images and meeting all sorts of incredible people. --- From amazingly successful, professional photographers to the aspiring novice just picking up a camera for the first time; all of you have something in common with each other as well as myself. A thirst to learn, progress, and capture incredible images of our night sky. And with that common denominator, Milky Way Chasers has brought together many of us to meet up and head out on adventures to shoot the Milky Way. --- For myself it has meant the beginning of many new friendships with photographers from all over the world, as well as many hours of administering, responding to messages and moderating the Facebook group which has grown to almost 5k active users in the last 5 or so months. It's been a pleasure to chat and get to know so many of you along the way. --- I hope this active community of like minded people continues to grow and I wanted to take a moment to thank you all whether you be professional photographer, enthusiast, or just love to enjoy photos of the Milky Way. Thank you for motivating me, personally, on a DAILY basis to learn more and adventure farther In an effort to continually create higher quality and more creative images than I ever have. --- If you haven't already, please join the FB group (link in profile) to showcase your work, gain feedback, ask questions and progress in your learning from some of the top photographers in the world, and your peers. Chances are you'll make some new friends along the way! --- Here's to 100k, and hoping to hit 100k more by our 1 year! You guys all friggin' rock!!! --- Milky Way Chasers Founder, @TracyLeePhotos

Last month when I was...

Last month when I was in Sacramento, I met up with @Maynorchrome & @The_lost_coast and they took me to a favorite shooting spot of theirs... I really loved this composition of the converging train tracks and am really happy with the images I took and got taken of me from that night. Not long after this shot we moved to a different composition and I left my camera on the tracks while the guys did shots with me as the model and Felipe saved my camera from the oncoming (or so we thought) train. It was actually quite a ways off but I appreciate that he was quick on his feet about it while I was still up on a rock posing. --- This was 9 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for Noise Reduction and edited in LR. I increased the vibrance and then added dehaze which lent to the blue color of the image. The light pollution in the distance may have been Auburn or something? I'm not quite sure. ______ ISO 2500 F 2.8 25 seconds 9 images stacked in SLS for NR Processed in LR ______ #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 #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #nightpix #nightxpo #altaca #sacafterdark #tracyleephotos

So like I said yesterday,…

So like I said yesterday,...

So like I said yesterday, I wanted to head out last night and try and shoot the Milky Way in El Paso.. There's a lot of light pollution due to the side by side cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez but when I was out at Cattleman's for dinner on Wednesday night I spotted my muse perfectly lined up with some teepees next to a lake so I was on a mission. --- I headed out about 30 minutes to the outskirts of the city around 7pm last night; just as the Galactic Center was set to make an appearance. I quickly set up my gear and was able to grab a quick focus due to the lights from the property. They were causing a really bad flare in my lens so I put myself in between the light and the camera body to stop this from happening. As I was shooting, I heard a noise of something approaching and when I turned I at first thought it was a dog. As it skittishly ran away, I realized it was a coyote; they had a lot there on the property... --- I used 11 images for the sky stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker and 11 for the foreground. I wasn't thinking and changed out my lens in between the two so while the tripod staying in the same place, I ended up causing myself extra editing time due to discrepancies between the two photos. No joke, this took a TON of editing and I wouldn't have been successful with having it not look like crap were in not for using SLS to stack for Noise Reduction. _______ ISO 800 F2.8 15 seconds for sky 11 Images stacked in SLS for NR --- ISO 400 F2.8 10 seconds for foreground 11 Images stacked in SLS for NR 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 #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #nightpix #cattlemans #elpaso

Traveling, new clients, and family…

Traveling, new clients, and family...

Traveling, new clients, and family stuff has kept me not being able to edit images and post them as much as of late. I'm trying to shoot more, and edit more so that I can be more consistent!! I brought a lot of images with me to work on as well as I'm hoping to try and shoot more. Did you know that if you google "El Paso Milky Way" a whole bunch of pictures of houses show up? And no one shoots it here? I'm hoping to get out in the next couple nights and maybe change that a little bit- the MW IS viewable in the outskirts here; I saw it and want to prove it in spite of side by side cities (Ciudad Juarez) and light pollution.. I digress... --- #ThrowbackThursday This image was taken this summer in Tioga Pass at Yosemite when I headed out to the Eastern Sierras with @MattCookii​.. This was the 3rd little lake inside the gate and I was FREEZING cold as I took this as we were at 10k ft in spite of it being August. This is a 9 shot pano with my camera in portrait orientation using an Tokina 11-20. I decided to edit this like I did, inspired by @DerekSturmanPhotography​ doing it earlier this summer because I don't like how small a 1.91:1 looks on Instagram. Some of the rocks in the lake I removed to make it less identical top and bottom. Hope you enjoy!! _______ ISO 3200 F 2.8 25 seconds Processed in LR & PS 9 images shot in Portrait orientation _______ #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 #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #nightpix #nightxpo #findyourpark #usinterior
