Workshop student Jeff Stoddart gets warmed up for the big event with a shot of the Grand Teton from Schwabacher's Landing. I captured this image with my LG G5 and then edited it with Prisma. With a lot of veterans returning for the fall foliage and Milky Way skies in the Tetons, we're looking forward to another great event!

Leftover Logs
I really liked how these logs near the T.A. Moulton Barn gave it a great sense of place. Of course, the Milky Way skies helped too, but the logs take me back to the days when it was built back in the early 1900s. And with our teaching workshops at this location some 100 years later, I really like that...

I'm getting excited about this location because I'll be heading back there for another workshop in just a few more days... it should be a lot of fun! If you're interested, check out the details on our workshops at NightPhotographyWorkshop.com.

Colorado Columbine
One of the prettier places I got to visit this summer was Stony Pass near Silverton, Colorado. I'd been there before, but this time the conditions were really impressive with wildflowers in full bloom. I decided to spend the night there and while my night photography plans didn't materialize (just too cloudy), the sunset period was gorgeous...

How Do I Shoot A Great Panorama?
While our workshops primarily focus on night photography, we get a lot of questions about how to capture a good panoramic sequence. This may be because it's a common technique for reducing noise or because it's a great way to capture a scene with the Milky Way arcing across the sky but regardless I wanted to share some of our favorite techniques for capturing a great panorama...

Check out the full article at goo.gl/cQIP7B.

Milky Way Steps At The Crest House Ruins
As one of my first night-time captures with my new Sony A7SII, I was interested to see how well it would do. It was a great chance to see how well the bright sensor worked together with a bright lens to handle my focusing & exposure needs.

I was hoping to work out the kinks before an upcoming workshop at the same location but I found myself pretty excited about the camera's capabilities. It was very impressive how it picked up the foreground with just a hint of light. And capturing that much detail in the Milky Way with just 10 seconds of exposure time was really nice to see!

Rustic Falls Forever

A new image and a new website.... I hope you'll check it out at ColoradoCaptures.com. Thanks for taking a look! :-)

From the moment I first saw Rustic Falls near Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park, I knew it was something special. And being a nightscape photographer, I knew I wanted to capture it under Milky Way skies...

I was touched to learn that someone was so moved by one of my photographs that she decided to get it permanently tattooed on her body.  I was truly honored!  Thanks to Kimberly Husted for sharing the results!

Shooting The Arch Over The Arch
Back in Moab for one our final events of the year, I'm reminded of how much fun is to teach in interesting locations with great people... this comes from an event we ran back in May when the Milky Way was arcing right over Mesa Arch. It was a fantastic night, that's for sure!

Backpacking at Island Lake near Silverton, Colorado last night made for an incredible experience. Sure the hike took me forever but the scenery and the conditions were awesome. And waking up to topless women this morning was definitely the icing on the cake!

The Kids Table
There's nothing like Mountain Goats munching at sunset and for this, Mount Evans is one heck of a great location. And with a couple of night photography workshops coming up on Mount Evans, I can't help but get a little excited!

While these goats were filling up on tundra vegetation, I thought it was interesting how this Mountain Goat kid was so separated from all the adults. It was as though he was alone at the kids table while the adults got to eat at the real table. :-)

Upcoming Workshops through NightPhotographyWorkshop.com
• July 9 on Mount Evans - 2 spots open
• August 6 on Mount Evans - 1 spot open
• September 3-6 in Arches & Canyonlands - 3 spots open
• September 22-25 in the Tetons - 5 spots open

A Night Photography Workshop Instructor Who Makes Milky Way Dreams Come True
Introduction
Having found his love for photography deep in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, Mike found a great drive to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate to see it for themselves.  Now, he uses that same passion to drive himself into the dark of the night in his home state of Colorado and beyond - still with the same underlying mission to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate.
 
Join Mike on a photographic adventure - whether through his images or on one of his night photography workshops.  That's right, you can share the passion and see the techniques that result in magnificent nightscape images.  Either way, you're sure to pick up some inspiration along the way!
 
For those interested in learning more about his night photography techniques, be sure to check out his training website at www.NightPhotographyWorkshop.com.  He works together with a training partner (Darren White) to Make Milky Way Dreams Come True in places like Arches & Canyonlands in Utah, Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, and Mount Evans in Colorado.

On their website, you'll find that instructors go above and beyond in sharing all they know to turn students into skilled night photographers.  See comments from their workshop alumni on their Testimonials Page or see the publicly posted Articles & Tutorials for yourself.  Of course, let Mike know if you run into any questions.  He's happy to help.

Bragging rights
I've helped people to fully appreciate the beauty of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming as well as the Milky Way and the starry night skies as a whole. And even more significant, I've helped people make their dreams of capturing the Milky Way come true.
