New on 500px : Rising Sky by Gewitterjagd by Gewitterjagd

Standing above the Earth – Thats how I felt while shooting this scene. Right next to me, cliffs fall about 1000m in the depth of the foggy ocean, on the other side, the mountains raised another 500m and right in front of me the infinit night sky showed it’s best.

It is quite awesome for a mid-European to take photos in places where the light pollution isn’t that high, this are moments we never get to see here at home because of our big cities.

I will definitely go back to that place one day!

New on 500px : Legend by Shainblum by Shainblum


After a long headache and 2 hours on a twisty road we finally arrived at a beautiful meadow in Mt Laguna. As the sunlight fell we were graced with a beautifully vivid night sky. My friends Dan Douglas, Brian Hawkins and Daniel Tomlinson had a blast sharing stories and setting up multiple axis Timelapse shots. As the 4 hour Timelapses were running I decided to capture this 180 degree panorama.

Since I know you guys love the technical details here they are, this Panorama is 15 vertical images taken with the Canon 6D and Nikon 14-24 F/2.8
EXIF: 20Sec F/2.8 ISO6400

If you wanna learn how to take and or process images like this one, check out my new online and in person workshops.

Dave Morrow and I also provide a video tutorial with RAW files so that you can follow along.

New on 500px : In the Still of the Night by JessHendelman by JessHendelman

I did re-edit on this photo.

I had the chance to meet up with my friend, Adam Woodworth Photography and enjoy a night of shooting, at Foster Bridge in Cabot, VT.

The night was quiet with the exception of a pack of Coyotes howling to each other.

This is a 2 shot composite. The sky was taken at 20s at ISO 6400, and the foreground ISO 800 301s.

New on 500px : The Edge Of Perception by Shainblum by Shainblum


Here is a new photograph from one of my favorite spots in California, Santa Ynez. The rolling hills with giant oak trees makes for some awesome foreground with the Milky Way. The bright spots on the horizon is not the sun setting, but actually the Light Pollution from Los Angeles county. I hope you guys enjoy the photograph.

I teach workshops for photography and timelapse on Skype, click here if you are interested in learning more.

New on 500px : 50 Photographs Later… by ChadPowellPhotography by ChadPowellPhotography

Due to this image consisting of 50 individual photographs, all taken within the same hour, it took an incredibly long time to stitch together. All that being said, the end result is a 360 degree view of Castle Haven, showing off the entire Milky Way that arches above our heads starting in the south and finishing in the north. Very little adjustments to the milky way were needed, due to the incredibly clear night that evening. What you see here is the most natural colours of our galaxy, and the most accurate we’d see with our eyes if they were as sensitive to light as my camera. Also, the small smudge to the right of the left side of the milky way is in fact the Andromada Galaxy.

New on 500px : Dreams Along The Coast by Shainblum by Shainblum


I shot this photography yesterday on the Mendocino Coastline. Me and my buddy Griffin spontaneously packed up the car at 10pm and took the 3 hour drive on the twisty 1North highway. About 1 hour into the drive we were close to empty on gas and attempted to find a nearby station. After aimlessly searching Google Maps with almost no service, we stopped in to ask the front desk of the only motel in the area. The man at the front desk told us the only gas station open was back 30 minutes the direction we came. If we had kept going we would have been stuck all night with no service in the middle of nowhere.

Long story short, we ended up at the costal trail at about 2am and proceeded to hike down some minor cliffs. Once we hit the beach we were graced with the amazingly vivid Galactic Core over the ocean. I took the panorama out of excitement. I hope you all enjoy it.

New on 500px : Cyborg by Shainblum by Shainblum

(Lots of shadow detail, PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK)

Here is a new image from Delicate Arch in Arches National Park Utah. The park has some incredible rock formations matched with a vivid night sky. Its a simple and very well shot composition, however I really wanted to bring my own take to the shot. I hope you all enjoy the image. 🙂
