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...

Geyser X
I got to spend some time in Yellowstone National Park scouting for a future night photography workshop and boy was I impressed! The scenery was great and the crowds were gone which made it a real treat...

See the rest of the story including how I got the shot and get free wallpaper from coloradocaptures.com/geyser-x.

Balance In The Bisti Badlands
Ever since getting inspired by some friends' work in the Bisti Badlands, I've had it in-mind as a great place to visit. It's unique on its own and after focusing on Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming over the past few years, it fit well with my hopes to capture a little more variety...

See the rest of the story including how I got the shot and get free wallpaper from
coloradocaptures.com/balance-bisti-badlands.

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

There's been another chapter in my transition from Nikon to Pentax. That's right... I sent back my Pentax K-1 today because I was unable to get Astrotracer to work properly and it became clear that Pentax support would not be able to help any time soon.

With that, I've made the decision to move forward with a Sony A7SII and I look forward to giving it a test run sometime soon. Along the way, I have to give my compliments to B&H as their customer service team was very understanding on returns that had exceeded their 30 day limit. Thank you B&H! :-)

Ultimate Ballhead Review
Thanks to Acratech's high quality materials and innovative designs, Mike's been a huge fan of their ballheads for years. He's owned and has been using the GV2 as his primary ballhead until just recently when he got a chance to test two of their latest, most popular ballheads. See the test results for yourself at goo.gl/mkQjP8.

+Mike Berenson I'm in the market for a good solid ball head. So, I will most definitely be reading up on the Acratech products. Up until now, I have had my eyes set on the BH-40. The biggest lens I have so far is a Nikkor 70-200/2.8 mounted on a D800. I'm going to read up on that "turn upside down" feature since I do some panos.

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.
