100% BETTER ON BLACK!!!

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

BEST ON BLACK!

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.

PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK!

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.

(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. 🙂

View on black!

There are few things I enjoy more than shooting a beautiful clear night sky, but when greeted by a dreamlike alien world such as Mono Lake, suddenly the experience is elevated. Here’s a new one, it’s a simple exposure, subtle and dark. I really hope you guys enjoy viewing as much as I did shooting it.

Better on black.

This was one of my first Astro panoramas taken from Mount Figueroa outside of Santa Barbara, California. The night was filled with stargazing and astrophotography. It was a night I will remember for the rest of my life. The beautiful bank of fog glistened under the starlight. Shortly after this photo was taken the fog bank rolled higher and engulfed us. Just like that the moment was over.

Thanks for checking it out guys!

Better On Black!

After a rainy, cloudy, and stormy day near the Grand Canyon, Toby Harriman and I found a nice spot to camp. After hours of overcast weather we started to see a big opening in the clouds. Guess what it was full of? ….STARS! I took a few shots of the Galaxy, it was a beautiful night.

New on 500px : Witchcraft by Shainblum by Shainblum

PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK!

To be amongst some of the oldest living trees in the world is quite a unique experience. My night at Patriarch Grove in particular was unforgettable. The moonless sky was like nothing I had ever seen before, and the beautiful white rock reflected all of the star glow. This glow provided natural ambient light for not only the photographs, but also to help us see where we were going without LED headlamps. The green cast you are seeing in the sky is called “airglow” and it is natural to the photograph. I was able to take this photograph with one exposure and some post processing, although I did not light up the tree or do any exposure blending. This is one RAW frame with color correction, contrast, noise reduction, and selective dodging and burning. Words can not express how beautiful the sky was up in the White Mountains of California, however, I hope this photograph does some justice to what I saw there that night.

New on 500px : Delicate Discovery by Shainblum by Shainblum

VIEW ON BLACK

“Delicate Discovery”

One of the many images from my night at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. It was an interesting shooting experience for me. Most of the time when I shoot the Milky Way I am alone or with one other person, we usually do not run into any other photographers during the night. At Delicate Toby and I shared the space with over 15 other photographers who all wanted a turn to “light paint” the arch. It made it had for me, as I usually shoot with only ambient light. If I need more light in the foreground I will usually try to do long 2-5 minute exposures. Overall it was a really great experience, the wait for the spot to be empty was incredibly worth it!
