The elegant skull and the milky way [En español abajo]

This photo represents a couple of first for me. For example, this is the first photo that I’ve taken with a model and using remote controlled flash to capture the stars and the model in one shot. Also, it marks the first time I drive 1,400 miles, driving over 22 hours roundtrip in one weekend, just to get some shots.

The elegant skull (or La Catrina by it’s name in Spanish) is an iconic image from the Day of the Death Mexican celebration. It seemed very fitting to do this shot at the Terlingua ghost town cemetery.

I want to give a big thank you to Sureya Mir for not only being patient and standing still for 15-20 seconds in utter darkness for each shot, but also for bringing the wardrobe and doing her own make up.

Esta foto representa un par de cosas nuevas para mi. Por ejemplo, esta es la primera foto que tomo con una modelo usando flashes con control remoto para poder capturar las estrellas y la modelo en una sola foto. También representa la primera vez que manejo 1,400 millas (mas de 2,250 kilómetros), por mas de 22 horas de manejo viaje redondo en un fin de semana solo para tomar unas fotos.

La Catrina se ha vuelto una imagen icónica de la celebración del día de muertos en Mexico, por lo que me pareció adecuado el tomar esta foto en el cementerio del pueblo fantasma de Terlingua.

Quiero aprovechar para agradecer a Sureya Mir no solamente por ser paciente y quedarse quieta por 15-20 segundos en la oscuridad para cada foto, sino por haber llevado su propio vestuario y hacer su maquillaje.

After finishing up my workshop with +Mike Berenson and +Darren White I set off to explore Grand Teton National Park on my own, and one of the highlights from my evening (before the fog rolled in) was visiting this chapel just minutes away from the south entrance, near Moose.

It was built in 1925 to serve guests and employees of the dude ranches that stretched north of Jackson, WY; and it was built to frame a view of the Cathedral Group of peaks in a large window behind the altar, and while the time of the year wasn't suitable for taking the picture having the milky way behind the chapel and the mountains, I looked the other way for a side view of the chapel with the milky way center just over the main entrance.

I did the light painting for this photo myself. I used 5 separate images that I blended together to form the final image.

Camera: Nikon D750
Lens: Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Focal length: 24mm
Aperture: f/2.8
Exposure: 25 seconds
ISO: 6400

Moulton Barn Trails [En español abajo]

This is the John Moulton Barn in Mormon Row at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA.

I left my second camera shooting 113 photos while a 65% moon was rising behind it.

Happy Earth day everyone! [En español abajo]

This is a 17 image panorama from Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, but because of the way I took it it actually has the aspect of a regular photo (but the file size and the quality for making big prints is incredible).

I just realized that even though I took a print of this photo to Artopia 2015 I've never uploaded it here (which is another good reason for going to me live print events).

You can see a higher quality version at my website: http://goo.gl/6QiODi

Feliz dia de la tierra a todos!

Este es un panorama de 17 imágenes que tome en Crater Lake National Park en Oregon, pero por la forma en la que lo tome se ve como una foto normal (pero la calidad y resolución para hacer impresiones grandes es increíble).

Acabo de darme cuenta de que aunque lleve una impresión de esta foto para el show de Artopia 2015, nunca la subí a mi pagina (lo que muestra que es una buena idea ir a mis shows en vivo).

Pueden ver una version de mejor calidad en mi pagina: http://goo.gl/6QiOD

It might not have been the night that I wanted, but it's the night that I got... And I tried to make the best of it!

Here's a photo that summarizes my eclipse experience... There's no much detail in the moon photos because there was a thin layer of clouds but you can get the idea of how the eclipse looked from Dallas wink emoticon

No fue la noche que hubiera querido, pero es la noche que me toco... Y trate de hacer lo mejor posible. 

Esta es una foto que resume mi experiencia del eclipse... No hay mucho detalle en las fotos de la luna porque hubo una capa delgada de nubes tapandola, pero creo que la foto completa da una idea de como se vio el eclipse desde Dallas wink emoticon

Si les gusto la foto, ayudenme a compartirla y diganme que les pareció en los comentarios

I made this video from over 4,450 individual photos taken in the course of two nights at Chena Hot Springs in Alaska.

This was my first time shooting the northern lights, and I quickly discover that unlike shooting regular nightscapes one set of settings won't work for all night. It depends on the intensity and speed of the aurora. Therefore the settings on the photos range from 1/3 of a second to 8 seconds, and from ISO 4,000 to 10,000. But everything was shot at 14mm and f/2.8; using Nikon D750 and D600 cameras.

Please excuse the sudden flashes of light, there were a lot of tourist nearby trying to get aurora photos with flash, or just afraid of stepping out without a flashlight, I tried to remove most of it but some happened in the middle of a nice aurora sequence so I decided to keep them.
