What are your regrets for this milkyway season? Mine is not getting more editing done! #FBF i haven’t shot nearly as much this season- hoping to next week! Here’s a shot from June 2017 for #flashbackfriday ! —— Since most of June was spent on a shooting range, instead of shooting photos, this session I have been a little desperate to get some good shots... On my way home from LA Wednesday afternoon, I decided to find a good spot to shoot the Milky Way and wait out her appearance a few hours.. I drove around on dirt roads just last Barstow and then decided I would like to be closer to Vegas so I kept going more towards Baker.. I had this house pinned on my maps for over a year now but had never gotten close enough to explore it.. Well that day was the day and with my gun close at hand, I spent the sunset exploring the house and the surrounding ones as well.. The house has a dark basement below it which was part of the reason for my carrying my weapon. That and being a female in the middle of the desert alone... --- I shot a couple different compositions before calling it a night at 11:00pm.. I used 2 Lumecubes (use code TRACYLEE10 for 10% off and free US shipping ); one to light inside and 1 to light outside.. I ALWAYS try to bounce the light if I can and I did that with both lights in this instance.. pretty stoked with how this one came out! --- ISO 6400 F2.8 10seconds 10 images stacked in SLS for NR @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @slikusa 634-CFL @canonusa 70d --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #LumeOneUp #california #capture4cubes #litbylume

What image portrays the grief, what words convey the pain, what tears signify the remembrance? I, to this day haven’t forgotten where I was, what I felt, & what I thought the morning that this all happened; I hope that I never do. It was one point in this country, everyone, didn’t matter black or white, Democrat or Republican, male or female, gay or straight that this country came together under our flag. It sucks that it took such a devastating event to do that, but to see the domestic, political war that’s being fought right now, in this country is mind blowing... our boys are overseas fighting for us, & we’re letting the bad guys in the backdoor because we’re too busy at the front squabbling & arguing with each other. - Whatever happened to One Country, Undivided? Perhaps 9-11 is the last time we were that way. We now have men (boys ) kneeling for the National Anthem, women on the US national team dropping the flag on the ground to celebrate a victory instead of flying it high & proud, actors calling for a black list of anyone who supports our current President, &the worlds largest retailer bowing to peer pressure from the gun control side. - as we sit here & fight &squabble over these petty things (& not so petty, as our 2nd Amendment & therefore our 1st are on the front line of this battle ), we’re weakening the resolve that this country stands for &inviting the enemy in at the hate. oops, typo.. or Freudian slip?? - How far does this go? Where does it end? What happens to this country if our country re-elects our current president again? When & where will the melt down hit the USA the most? - At the end of the day, we need to love thy neighbor, whether their views are the same or different than ours. We need to bear arms, &have the right to protect our family &our loved ones. We need to accept people no matter what their color, gender, religious beliefs are. & figure out a way to come together as One Nation under that Grand Ol’ Flag of the US OF A! - Let the memory of this day, those lost souls not be in vain. we need to find a way through some of the most polarizing times we’ve probably ever seen because there’s a war brewing from within.

Whats your next MW trip?? Season is going to be winding down here pretty quickly, I need to get a little bit more in. - On last year’s #TheGreatMilkyWayChase we didn’t have a solid itinerary so we ended up with some really cool random comps along the way like this one... #TBT #throwbackthursday — Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Night 4 of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase I’m losing track of days; I just know that we’re on day 7 of this trip... I think we left New Mexico on Monday and as we were driving through we saw this amazing butte so decided that this was our comp for the night.. we pulled off and shot before the moon rose but we wanted to get the moonlight on the butte so we waited.. This was taken after the half moon had risen above the surrounding mountains... can’t believe I got so much detail with the moon so high in the sky.. this is 20 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR.. make sure you check the settings below! —— ISO 1600 F1.4 35mm 10 seconds Processed in LR & PS —— @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 @sigmaphoto 35mm 1.4 —- . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure

Can you believe that this is real!?? Where have you shot in the world that looks so surreal that if you weren’t there, you wouldn’t believe it? — #TBT #ThrowbackThursday — Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I took off up to Salt Lake City exactly a month ago with wildflowers and Milky Way on our minds... this was from the last night we were there and I can’t believe how much we lucked out on this incredible sunset... we weren’t so lucky that night with the clouds and Milky Way so I’m glad we walked away with this amazing experience and not empty handed... —— Single Image ISO 100 F5.6 1/100 second Processed in LR —- @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 @canonusa 6DMK1 @slikusa 634-CF —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #mycanonstory #sunset #sunset_pics #sunsets #sunset_stream #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset_hunter #sunsetlover #sunsetlovers #sunsetlove #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee #utahisrad #iloveutah #utahrocks #reflections #reflection_perfection #reflect #mirrorimage #mirror

What’s your favorite “unexpected” Milky Way comp that you have taken thus far? - My Milky Way adventures have been reduced to a minimum this year because of my work so I take any chance I can to grab photos if there’s an opportunity.. I was up in Utah this last weekend off the grid on this ranch, and walking by the front of the house I saw that the Milky Way had risen over it.. I wish I had noticed about an hr prior for a better alignment but I’ll take what I can get!! I ran to my room and grabbed my gear, turned off the front porch lights and then shot these photos... I wasn’t sure how this would turn out because I only took 15 minutes or so to shoot because I didn’t want anyone to notice I was gone. The light is ambient light from other buildings and tiki torches on the porch... —- Foreground 20 images ISO 500 F2.8 10 seconds — Sky 30 images ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds - @tokinausa 24-70 @ 24 @slikusa 734-cf @canonusa #5dMK4 - Processed in LR & PS and stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #canon #mycanonstory #teamcanon #tokinausa #slikusa #milkyway #milkywaychasers #longexpo #longexposure #longexpoelite #adventuretime #adventurers #adventurenthusiasts #nationalparkgeek #landscape_love #landscapelove #longexposhots #utahlover #iloveutah #utahisrad #utahphotographer #utahtravels #utahcounty #utahadventures #utahphotography

Is there a specific comp that has eluded you this season and what is it? For me, this is that comp... I originally found and shot it in April when on the #RoadtoNAB with @bhphoto but then my hard drive crashed and I lost every photo from this particular night (and I’m sure more that I haven’t discovered as of yet ) so I’ve been trying to make it back here to shoot it again. I had friends flake a multitude of times, and scheduling conflicts in my own life made it hard. I went as far as to be in Lone Pine with a friend one night, and then he had to get back in a slight emergency so grudgingly, I drove back to Vegas 4+ hrs after getting skunked the night before on the way TO lone pine.. I finally made it out here with my girl @evmr during #thegreatmilkywaychase2 to shoot and I got about 6 or 7 diff comps that night, and shot this until the battery I had on me ran out which meant I actually didn’t get all of the shots I really wanted to make this image... therefore my focus stack is weak at best and I’m going to have to try this one again next year!! — This is 6 images stacked for the cactus with a long exposure and no foreground light... the middle area/mountains are 10 images stacked with foreground light from a lumecube (bit.ly/tracyleelumecube for 10% off and free US shipping )... and then the sky, we waited exhausted in the cold (yes it was cold there at 330 am in july ) trying to sleep on the rocks until alignment, was 20 images stacked... it was a rough part of the evening.. thank you Evelyn for sticking it out with me!! — This was shot on my 11-20 2.8 by @tokinausa because I had left my 16-28 in the car... — Cactus 6 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - Foreground 10 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - Sky 20 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - @tokinausa 11-20 @ 16mm @slikusa 734-CF @canonusa 5DMK4 - Processed in LR & PS - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #canon #mycanonstory #teamcanon #tokinausa #slikusa #lumecube #lonepine #thegreatmilkywaychase #alabamahills #milkyway #milkywaychasers #longexpo #longexposure #longexpoelite #adventuretime #adventurers #adventurenthusiasts #nationalparkgeek #landscape_love #landscapelove #longexposhots

Hey all- please drop a hello if I haven’t talked to you in forever and I should have!!! I know I’ve been somewhat MIA but my life has taken a bit of a different turn this year and I haven’t been our shooting and adventuring as much.. I’m hoping to change that a little bit but I know I can’t change it a lot... but, I’m going to get back to posting images here ASAP because I have SO MANY still that I haven’t edited from #thegreatmilkywaychase2 and more. I also need to pick the winners from that so I’m getting working on that ASAP too! Thank you for your support and understanding! #tracyleephotos

Do you feel safe out shooting at night alone? Do you carry protection? On night 6 of @TheGreatMilkyWayChase I got flaked on again to head out to shoot so I went out to Seven Magic Mountains again which is about 15-20 minutes outside of Vegas. I had this idea for a comp to have some of the rock cairns people had stacked up with an unfocused Milky Way in the back... so I headed out, set up and unfortunately the real sculptures sat in the back of my comp. I adjusted to have the least amount of those colorful rocks in there knowing my content aware fill would be putting in work later.. - I quickly shot my 25 images and as they were finishing up, a car pulled into the nearby parking lot and someone got out. I rushed to do my video explaining my comp, packed up my gear and started walking back to the car with my hand on my gun. I had no idea who or what mindset I was going to pass on the pathway momentarily. Either way, I wanted to be ready in case it was an aggressive someone rather than be sitting on the ground on my ass when they walked up. I moved to the far right of the path with no light on because the light pollution of Vegas was bright enough, as the person passed on my left with a light on really bright. They said, how’s it going, and I said, good, how are you, and then they said, Tracy??! Turns out it was another local photographer, Brian who I’ve known for years who was out to shoot the meteor shower that night.. my hand came off my gun, closed my jacket calmly over it, chatted for a minute and then continued on to my car. - I would like to explain that I am extremely well trained with my gun. If you choose to go out at night by yourself and have a gun to protect you, I highly suggest you get training to assist in situational awareness and assessing situations so that you do not accidentally shoot someone you shouldn’t or yourself.. if you have any questions about this, please let me know.. - 25 stacked images ISO 6400 f2.8 6 seconds - @tokinausa 24-70 @ 24 @slikusa 634-cf @canonusa 5dmk4 - Sponsors: @lumecube @gnarbox @tenbabags @slikusa @milkywaychasers #thegreatmilkywaychase2 - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #canon #canonusa

You can still get on the chase, just to be featured even if you don’t finish it!!! Who’s on it?? - Night two of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase and I took off to Cali for what was going to be a couple nights but last minute we had to head back.. We were also late getting out there in the 1st place, hit two rabbits on the road, and my bar was making some really weird smells so half way up to the Ancient Bristlecone forest we stopped to shoot this from an overlook.. the winds were at least 30mph with bigger gusts so shooting was extremely difficult in spite of how amazing the Milky Way looked.. I managed to get 10 sky images that weren’t moved by the wind and then 5 foreground images at 16000 ISO for this questionable foreground lol... - Since we only had an hr to shoot and the wind was crazy, we got as many shots as we could and then got out of there quick and hit the hotsprings under the light of the partial moon. Grabbed a motel in Big Pine (starlight motel, HIGHLY recommend- such amazing customer service ) and crashed out around 4am... by the morning we knew we had to head back so grabbed Copper Top BBQ and made our way back to Vegas. I truly didn’t think I would salvage anything but the sky shots came out pretty great.. foreground is somewhat a disaster but I made do with what I had; most of the images had moved due to the wind! - Sponsors: @lumecube @gnarbox @tenbabags @slikusa @milkywaychasers @thegreatmilkywaychase - 10 sky images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - 5 foreground shots stacked ISO 16000 F2.8 30 seconds - @tokinausa 24-70 @ 24 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 5dmk4 — #thegreatmilkywaychase #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkywaypics #longexposhots #longexposures #tokina #slikusa #canonusa #canon5dmarkiv #teamcanon #mycanonstory #longexposure #easternsierras #ancientbristleconepineforest #whitemountains #starrylandscapestacker #gnarbox #lumecube #capture4cubes #tenba #tenbabags

Last night was the 1st night of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase2 and I headed just outside of Vegas with @marceldivino we got set up and we’re focusing our cameras here at the arch when all of a sudden a naked woman wandered through the arch, in search of her shoes and a water bottle.. this same set of shoes that was bothering Marcel as to who they belonged to.. she came over to shake our hands, and then told us about the photo shoot she was doing on the other side of the arch.. their lights kept lighting up the arch but not in a way that was disruptive at all. 30 minutes passed and then 3 people came through the arch this time, completely naked and happy as could be... they passed with a hello and a goodbye and we continued to shoot our comps... A weird but fun start to the Great Milky Way Chase!

Comment below, what type of photography gets you out of your comfort zone? #Contest #Sponsored @flyswiss #sponsored a #contest and I hung out w/12 sick photogs on Friday down in Santa Monica and #Venice your likes, comments, and feedback can help me win a trip to Switzerland! - This was a workshop/photo contest led by @dylan schwartz and it involved us going to iconic locations where thousands of photos have been shot, and us trying to take a new shot or perspective there. We had about 15 minutes in each location that we went to.. I haven’t shot most of the locations so I had no idea what the iconic shots were there anyways! I think this probably helped me more than it hindered me.. — The challenges I had were not foreign to me. This type of shooting I started calling “Kamikaze Photography” many years ago when I used to travel all over the world with the UFC fighters. I didn’t get to relax and set up a tripod, in fact my @slikusa tripod traveled everywhere and rarely got used at the time (been shooting with Slik long before I was sponsored! ). I had to grab many of my shots on the run; sometimes throwing up the camera without even looking through the viewfinder.. but, it’s something I haven’t done in many years and I can see it’s a perishable skill so I was hard pressed to find some great shots in such a short time. Time of day had me trying for sun stars in most my shots, and while in #TongvaPark , utilized the hand rail as a leading line to catch this silhouette of @thekevingreene overlooking the ocean in #SantaMonica — Please comment what type of photos you find most challenging! — ISO 100 F22 1/200 second @tokinausa 24-70 @ 24 @canonusa 5DMK1 — #flyswiss #switzerland #myswitzerland #tokinausa #canonusa #mycanonstory #teamcanon #5dmk4 #canon5dmk4 #heater_central #heatercentral #agameoftones #agameoftonesasteryx #sunset #sunsetsantamonica #citykillers #abc7la #visualambassador #streetmagazines #trappingtones #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #losangelesdesign #losangelesartdistrict

Who’s got a MW Airplane Shot in their portfolio? Everyone’s talking about an airplane shot @jaworskyj posted and I’ve been tagged a few times so I decided to repost this from last year. I shot my 1st plane pic in 2017, this one last year, and tried again last month but was unable to get the shot because of being so far behind the wing.. — Repost @tracyleephotos : So last night I jumped an @americanair flight to Puerto Rico for #RGGPuertoRico put on by @RGGedu I knew that the flight was going to put me right on a collision path to see the MW from the plane as it was rising so I checked into my flight hoping to score a window seat on the south side of the plane near the wing... —— Success!!! I packed my tripod on my carry on, threw my intervalometer in my purse, and had my camera ready. I also had my sweatshirt to cover the window from the cabin lights... —— I took 189 shots just to get 4 images in a row that I could stack; turbulence is your enemy in this process! —— Everyone asks what the flight attendants said. They really didn’t say anything in spite of me spending a good hour and a half with my camera against the window and me hugging the window with my sweatshirt... —— I filmed video of my process the entire time too so I could put together a quick tutorial.

I love this shot- wondering if I should try a re-edit; thoughts?? #FBF —— Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ This is the classic Watchman view from the bridge in Zion and I have wanted to get the shot for my own but the multiple times I have tried, something came up... This time, I made the effort to make sure it happened and after exploring during the day, I napped for two hours and then came down here and was surprised to have the place to myself on that Saturday Night. I took 20 images for the sky, and 6 images for the foreground. --- Someone parked across the bridge and walked up in the middle of the night without saying a word. I spotted them approaching and yelled out loudly, but I think that he should have announced himself.

This was the night before I held the Milky Way Chasers meet up at Trona Pinnacles and I was on a mission this night to get as many comps as I could. So I shot a sunset/milky way comp at some springs nearby, and then continued to this famous comp at Convict Lake in the Eastern Sierras. I had been wanting to shoot this for a while, although I might try again for a better alignment and core this coming season.. --- 20 images for the sky stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds - 10 images for the foreground stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 60 seconds --- Processed in LR & PS --- @TokinaUSA 16-28mm at 16 @SlikUSA 634-CF @Canonusa 6dMK1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #newmexico #bistibadands #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #LumeOneUp

#throwback To a fantastic road trip last summer... - Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ When we got out of the car, drops were already starting to fall and crowds were leaving the area due to the storm clouds overhead.. we didn’t get discouraged and headed out on the boardwalk with the hopes of the clouds breaking and then completely clearing up for stars later that night... well i love it when a plan comes together like this; we got sunset and clear skies for stars that night... I know I rarely post photos other than stars, but doesn’t mean I don’t take them... I just have to be super motivated by a shot to edit it, and this is one of those shots... the composition was a lot taller than this so I used content aware scale to make it fit for IG’s resolution... it was a lovely trip to Yellowstone with my dear friends @missjessbess @rachel_jones_ross @smpetersonphotography & @brentdangerrose —— Handheld because I didn’t want to move my tripod from my night composition to scope out the rest of the area; I didn’t know the sky was going to color up like this and spontaneously shot this... —— ISO 100 F11 1/10 second @tokinausa 16-28 @ 22 @canonusa 6dmk1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #sunset #sunset_pics #sunsets #sunset_stream #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset_hunter #sunsetlover #sunsetlovers #sunsetlove #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee #yellowstonenationalpark

Where have you avoided going because of crowds only to go and find out the crowds weren’t as bad as you thought they were going to be? - Ive always avoided shooting here because of the crowds I’ve heard about but @missjessbess and I ended up here on a non-new moon weekend and crossed our fingers and hoped for the best.. we scooped out a few backup locations in case and then we arrived a couple hours before the MW rose to set up tripods, and light the foreground.. i used a @luxlilight Panel (courtesy of @bhphoto ) face down on the rocks to diffuse an even light across the scene from near my camera.. I then used a lumecube (bit.ly/tracyleelumecube for 10% off and free US shipping! ) from behind the arch to light up the inside of the arch... as we were sitting there a couple of guys joined us and nearing the end of shooting, the guys from @planitphoto Showed up... so we had a fun little group, but not too big! We shot until the moon started rising behind the arch which was right before this perfect alignment and then called it a night! — 25 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 8 seconds Processed in LR @tokinausa Opera 16-28 @ 24mm @slikusa 734-CF @canonusa 5dmk4 —- #joshuatree #archrock #california #arches #tracylee #tracyleephotos #luxlilight #bhphoto #lumecube #litbylume #capture4cubes #tokinausa #slikusa #canonusa #teamcanon #mycanonstory #milkyway #milkywaychasers #astrophoto #astrophotos #astrophotography #moonrise #joshuatreenationalpark #jtnp #adventurephotos

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday to a hot summer day discovering new things.. who’s ready for #TheGreatMilkyWayChase ? Starting in mid June-July. Will announce sponsors soon!! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I have so many photos still left from #TheGreatMilkyWayChase but i'm too excited about this one... @MissJessBess , @Megavai and I have been adventuring and exploring in the off days that the moon was full.. Well that meant spending a lot of time in random areas with HOT temps... Yesterday Jess and I started exploring at 6am and found this wonderful arch that we named Meatball Arch; Not sure if you can see why... --- It was over 109+ by the time we got to the car at 10am with 6 miles under our belts... We then napped and fed ourselves midday while we waited for the sun to go down before returning to shoot this in the 45 minutes of MW we had last night. It was absolutely perfect; weather was amazing and conversation non-stop.. I have decided that Jess is my adventure spirit animal and I look forward to many more scouting and photo missions with her! --- We lit this with 1 bit.ly/tracyleelumecube 10% off & free US Shipping ), one inside the arch and the rest was just ambient light before dark. This is 10 images stacked, focused on the foreground, blended with 20 images stacked for the sky. --- Foreground- 10 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 800 F6.3 30 seconds - Sky 20 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds - processed in LR & PS --- @TokinaUSA 11-20mm @ 16mm @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 — #tokinausa #canonusa #teamcanon #slikusa #desertphoto #desertphotography #milkyway #astrophotos #astrophotographer #astrophoto #milkywaychasers #tracylee #tracyleephotos #californiatrip #lumecube #litbylume #capture4cubes #arches #rockarch #archrock #joshuatree #californiasun #californiasunsets #californiaroadtrip #adventurephotos #adventurephoto

Who has made a journey for a photo, only to be disappointed by weather? Where to? — I will start off by saying, this image is completely a COMPOSITE. For those of you who know me, you know that’s not my normal MO. but after making the journey to this place, to get overwhelmed by rain & gale force winds, I decided for this situation I would do a composite of exactly where the MilkyWay would have risen that night. This was my 5th time coming here, perhaps my last.. - I took off to Bull frog marina w @missjessbess on Monday around 9pm. We didn’t go to sleep till 730 at the Defiance House Lodge. We woke at 9 to meet up with @jacobthefu & @estherjulee to head out on our journey for the next few days.. thank you @nationsvacation ! - The hike was a lot sketchier than expected but we arrived around 4pm, just in time to see a rainbow stretch itself across the canyon. it was a battle over set up camp or take photos &photos of course won. We shot sunset, then set up camp, then started shouting blue hour.. - I only got a few blue hour shots in before the skies opened &it started pouring. I was in a VERY dangerous spot on the slick rock &I also had another camera out in another location. I climbed back up, collected my things &retreated off to the tent that thankfully Jess carried in as we were contemplating leaving it. From 9-4am, the winds howled &shook the tent. I woke up every 30 minutes starting at midnight to see if the wind stopped or the skies were clear. The core was rising behind a thick collection of dark clouds w/ tiny breaks in it &wind was going nuts. by 3 am I gave up &went to sleep until just before blue hour sunrise where we woke up to get more shots - Took two more nights for clear skies where I shot this from factory butte. - Sky-25 shots ISO 12800 F3.2 10 sec - Foreground ISO 100 F20 15sec - @tokinausa opera 16-28 @ 18 @slikusa 734-CF @canonusa 5DMK4 Processed in LR&PS - #nationsvacation #lakepowell #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tokinausa #canonusa #slikusa #canon5dmarkiv #mycanonstory #teamcanon #milkyway #milkywaychasers #astro #astrophoto #longexpo #nature #natureshots #adventure

#FBF #FlashbackFriday so a lot of people have been heading out here as of late. I hear it’s not being treated well and people aren’t being very respectful to the #LeaveNoTrace movement.. it was this hike that caused me to stop ever posting trip reports and blogs about how to get places again. I feel partially to blame for the rumors I’m hearing. I stopped posting locations and I don’t give out coordinates anymore.. I think if a place that’s so remote and this hard to get to can get messed up, All photographers should set an example and practice discretion.. this is still one of my fave photos/Trips ever.. I will go one last time and then look for a new untouched place to photograph... —- To this date, one of my favorite photos... —— Repost @tracyleephotos Reflection Canyon.It was brought to public light by a Nat Geo photographer named Michael Melford for a story, Glen Canyon Revealed in 2006. The canyon got "famous" when Apple TV added it to its screen saver in 2012. (I recently learned that Google added an image of Reflection Canyon to IT'S screen saver by another photographer- weird lol ) In 2010-a photographer name Ranier Grosskopf had seen the article by Michael and arranged to journey to the canyon and created a series of way pojints that I used to follow to get there 5 years later in 2015. I made sure to learn from his mistakes- I paid attention to the water levels in the lake and went there at its lowest level in end of April last year. I posted the images I got & became "friends" on FB and Instagram as a result with @MichaelMelford He gave me props for making the journey by foot- he had done it by boat. I decided to make this an annual trip &went again last week. —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tokinausa #slikusa #canonusa #teamcanon #canonbringit #naturephotography #glencanyon #reflectioncanyon #milkyway #stars #nightsky

What’s high on your list of places to go this year? really want to make it back here again this season- crossing my fingers to! #TBT #ThrowBackThursday —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ So the other night, @missjessbess and took off to the Grand Canyon in search of this viewpoint we had been obsessed w/ for some time. I didn’t know what it was called, so I pored over maps until I figured it out; we took off to pick up permits from the Navajo Office in Cameron, Az.. - We walked into the offices at 3:45 pm, but I guess we were wrong and it was actually 4:45; the Navajo nation is on Mtn time. The gentleman opened the door for us and when we asked for a permit, he issued it as well as gave us a map with very difficult directions on how to access the edge of the canyon. we didn’t know that other than us, the canyon had been closed to visitors since May. (we found this out after the fact& even called the office to verify.. ) — We took off to our destination &although made many stops along the way for photos, arrived to the edge of the canyon in plenty of time before the sun went down; we couldn’t see it because of storms but it hadn’t set yet. - We backed the Jeep up to the center edge of the canyon where we could sit in the back of the vehicle & still adjust our cameras.. we could see clouds rolling in but we’re hoping they would clear by the time the milkyway rose.. I let a timelapse run while I waited for the next few hours and we fell asleep in the back of the Jeep. About 330 am, Jess moved up to the front seat &I checked my shots for a slight glimpse of the MW.i got nothing good, but as blue hour arrived, so did clear skies! Jess joined me in this very short opp to shoot the Milky Way perfectly aligned almost west at the center of the canyon as the light was starting to brighten the sky. Lower pano I shot at am Blue Hour. — I shot a 2 frame horizontal orientation vertical pano with 20 stacked images in each. — SKY: 20 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - Foreground: 20 images stacked ISO 100 F11 1/13 second — @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @ 16mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1

What’s the tightest schedule you’ve kept when shooting multiple comps in one night?—- This was on Thursday of the @bhphoto #RoadToNAB and I have to give @missjessbess all the credit in finding this particular arch in the hills. I also have to give her the credit for at 315am when shooting the previous arch, motivating to this one in a very short amount of time before being back to where we just left in time for blue hour and sunrise. She suggested it, we hiked out of one place, into this one, and back out again... we made everything in the right amount of time! —- I got the new @TokinaUSA 16-28 2.8 Opera Lens to use on this trip. I used a @luxlilight set on warm tones bouncing off rocks to the left along with a Lume Cube (10% Discount and free US shipping use: bit.ly/tracyleelumecube ) with a warming diffuser on 1% up in the arch. I shot the foreground images at 10k ISO and that’s how I got so much detail in the back of the foreground vs how I shot the previous image the same night. —- Focus Stacked Image - 20 sky images ISO 10000 F2.8 8 seconds - 11 Foreground images (not sure why 11!

I’m always in search of new comps and this trip on the #RoadToNAB w/ @bhphoto was the perfect opportunity to look for ones off the beaten path.. I took off to Cali with @mrhollender @stanmoniz @missjessbess on an adventure of epic proportions and shot all kinds of fun stuff over 4-5 days.. it was an exhausting trip but I really think I got some cool stuff and it makes me excited for #TheGreatMilkyWayChase this summer! —- We were exploring areas of Alabama Hills we had never shot in before and we went in different directions... most arches in the area face east to west but this was North to South so it was perfect for this comp.. @missjessbess and I came back here at 3am and I lit the entire foreground with a @luxlilight from the right with a warm setting at about 30% bounced off the neighboring rocks. Then I put a warm diffused LumeCube at 2% inside the arch which was not a hard climb at all but a little bit of effort to get to... we were a bit of a distance back from the arch too so I shot a focus stack/stacked image (25 sky, 20 foreground ) at 35mm on the @TokinaUSA 24-70mm. The clouds were out and caused some serious bloating of the Stars!! —- This was the 1st comp of the night and we did about 4-5 more after lol... —- Sky - 25 stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 8 seconds - Foreground- 20 stacked ISO 3200 F2.8 30 seconds —- Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 24-70 @ 35mm @slikusa 734-CF @canonusa 5DMK4 - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #sliktripods #mycanonstory #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #longexpohunter #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #yourshotphotographer #naturephotography #landscapephotography #allaboutadventures #litbyluxli #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes

#ThrowbackThursday I'm sitting at this arch right now so why not #TBT ? —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I made my way out to Alabama hills after 2 days in the Mono Lake area. @mr_awesome717_photography @KaylaRain and rory were heading out to meet me from Vegas for the final 3 days of the trip. After meeting up with my friends, they followed me back to the parking area for Lady Boot just coming up on blue hour. I was rushing so much I walked out there with all of my gear, sans camera. Take 2, and I had my camera and all my gear set up for the alignment on Lady Boot I knew would be there soon after dusk. I started shooting for stacking for noise reduction. I had tried stacking for the 1st time earlier that week and I had somehow failed miserably at it. But, I love the results of a noise stacked image so I have been shooting images for that purpose for weeks. I had bought Starry Landscape Stacker based on Joshua Snow 's tutorials on the subject. I knew I would figure it out eventually. After shooting a while, a guy appears out of the dark. His name was Ralph and he was on a 10 day Milky Way journey from San Jose Ca. We all talked about shooting because it's what we love to do and he goes, you should stack your images. And to that I said, I'm shooting to do that now. He asks, what are you using to do your stacking to which is respond, well i'm new at it and I haven't figured it out yet but I am using Starry Landscape Stacker. The guy yells out, "YES!" and does a little celebratory dance; Dan and I looked at each other in the dark, bewildered. And then Ralph proceeds to tell us that it's the first time he's run into photographers in the field using the software that he created. HE was the creator of the software that I had purchased to stack images! lol What are the chances? So here is my first successful image using Starry Landscape Stacker. I'm pretty happy with the noticeable difference in noise and results! PS: i'm not paid to endorse the product, I just think it's an amazing coincidence and cool friggin story! It's definitely a cool product... - 4 Images Stacked using Starry Landscape Stacker ISO 2500 F2.8 25 sec @TokinaUSA 11-16 @SlikUSA tripod @canonusa 70d

What’s your favorite part of Death Valley?It’s the time of year when Death Valley’s landscape goes under major changes... this particular year it’s going to have insane changes because of the major flooding they experienced this year...

#flashbackFriday #fbf to summer 2016 when I went to the Patriarch Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Forest. I love this tree! Shot on a crop sensor camera! --- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I just completed a 5 day trip in the Eastern Sierras and boy, did I have a lot of fun and shoot a TON!! I met up with so many friends from Milky Way chasers and met some new friends in the dark. I am not going to be posting/editing in order at all.. Just kind of doing it as the feeling takes me.. This tree we started calling the Zebra tree early on in the evening before it was dark... The colors of it's trunk captivated me as we wandered through the Ancient Bristlecone forest on Monday night. . . . I had met up with @Mr_Awesome717_photography , @Prevailz & @MatthewSavillePhoto as well as Kayla and Rory who were along for the adventure, and we drove into the Patriarch Grove in the White Mountains. I knew this tree was an early evening composition but it was going to be a gamble to see how perfectly the Milky Way core would fit into the break in the trees. . . . The gamble paid off and this ended up being my favorite composition of the night!! This is a single image with the moon still up on the right side of the frame. We used a @lux_pro_flashlights to light up the foreground of the tree. This 5 day trip taught me to embrace the moonlight in my images and therefore extended the amount of days I can shoot each and every month! ___________ ISO 2500 F2.8 25 seconds @TokinaUSA 11-16 2.8 & @slikusa Canon 70d Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop Planned using @photopills app ____ #longexposure_shots #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeospace #milkyway #milkywaychasers #tracyleephotos #nightscaper #nightscape #universetoday #nightphotography #photopills #nightphotography_exclusive #agameoftones #nightpixels #pocketnights #tokinausa #sliktripods #luxproflashlights #patriarchgrove

#Tbt #ThrowbackThursday - Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Back in April i had the pleasure of shooting with two of my very talented friends, @cecphotos & @stevenjmagner one of the main reasons I like writing stories about my adventures is not only to share with you guys, but to help myself remember which I’m having a problem doing so many months later, lol. I think Chris was in town for the NAB convention, and we had dinner with @tenacityinpursuit at some point I think Steven was jealous of us going out and shooting 😜 so he made the 4 hr drive out to vegas to join us for some adventures... I had never been here at night although I have explored many other parts in the same vicinity.. (please don’t ask the location, and please don’t name it; I appreciate you guys in advance... ) We hiked out to this spot after midnight on a night the very small moon wouldn’t ride until after the MW had set and played around shooting for a few hours. I ended up hiking out on my own because I had to be up but the guys wanted to stay for sunrise.. —— This was 12 images stacked in SLS for Noise Reduction I took exposed for the sky. The light pollution from Vegas was enough to light the foreground in spite of the lack of moonlight; that’s Vegas light on the bottom right. I’m sad that milky ways season is over but I am happy that I have countless photos left to share from the season because I took so many! —- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds @tokinausa 16-28mm @ 16 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 — #tracylee #tracyleephotos #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #mycanonstory #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #longexposure #longexpohunter #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #yourshotphotographer #naturephotography #adventurephotography #landscapephotography #allaboutadventures
