Free Star Photography Tutorial + Scouting & Planning for Star, Milky Way and Night Sky Photography Video Series

I just arrived in Death Valley, California to shoot the Milky Way & scout for some new Night Skies Photography Workshops & Tours for early 2016.

During the next 10 days the moon phase is perfect for shooting the Milky Way, night sky & stars.

If you’re interested in learning how to plan for your next shoot under the stars check out my free tutorial linked below. I’ve also included a link to my free star photography tutorial which teaches all the basics of shooting:)

Photo Details
This was actually my first Milky Way photo from way back in the day. It was taken in the North Cascades of Washington State near Picture Lake. Shooting with a Nikon D800 + Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 the settings were f/2.8, ISO5000, 30 seconds.

Enjoy,
Dave

I recently spent some time chatting with +Brent Mail & +Johny Spencer about all things photography and … well, some silly stuff from my past

I never have the courage to watch these types of interviews – what's done is done! Hopefully there's no need for extreme embarrassment. I let you be the judge 😉

I can't remember when exactly I stumbled across OPHELIA's channel but I often stop by for a little dose of photographic & artistic inspiration. If you're the type of artsy person who enjoys a touch of #DarkBeauty you may find yourself browsing around awhile ;)

Alternate Realities ~

After much deliberation …
my submission for this year's +Plus One Collection.  I thought this image suited the “Our World” theme, choosing a subcategory from   “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”  puzzled me for a few moments. Haha,  this tiny world contains all three!

The new edition will be absolutely chock full of AWESOME! If this photograph makes the book  I will consider it a great honour to be among such talent. Many thanks to +Ivan Makarov & the team of supporters who work so hard putting book together each year.

The Samburu Project (this year's charity), provides access to safe, clean drinking water to Kenyan communities. During my youth I had the daily chore of hauling fresh water from a nearby stream to our remote cabin … bloody hard yakka! A source of reliable clean water is such a simple yet profound gift.

Tracks Official Trailer #1 (2013) – Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver Movie HD 

I've just seen Aussie film "Tracks" based on the true story of Robyn Davidson's solo trek across the Australian desert to the Indian Ocean during the 1970's. Stunning cinematography, great story & authentic performances. If you like an actioned packed movie this may not float your boat.  But if picturesque scenery,  a human story & relaxed pace adventure appeals,  this film is well worth the price of admission.

Below is one of the original images by +Rick Smolan that appeared in National Geographic Magazine circa 1977.
