presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @arpandas_photography_adventure . Milkyway over Tre Cime. Congratulations to Arpan Das. “Shooting milkyway with wildflowers is always my favourite; however, it is extremely difficult to shoot them in night as a little bit of movement will make them blurry with long exposures. So I had to shoot the foreground during the blue hour and shoot the milky way in night. I am not a fan of artificial lighting. However the milky way is not placed randomly. I took the exact composition twice. I just wish I had a star tracker back then,” says Arpan. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Arpan: If you want to shoot the wildflowers and Milky Way like this with me and @mydetoxtravel this summer check the workshop link in my bio. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Blend / Vertical Panorama • Nikon D810 + Tamron 15-30mm • Sky - ISO 3200, 25 sec, f/2.8 • Foreground - ISO 65, 1/5 sec, f/9.0 . - LINKS: arpandas.com . .

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @cliffmanzone . In this hobby it's all about the dedication. Hebron, CT USA. Congratulations to Cliff Manzone. “My friend, @tim.costello and I, we're pretty dedicated. We woke up at 3AM. It was 10°F out. We hiked a half mile (one way) through a foot of crusty snow over hilly terrain. Of course neither of us prepared appropriately. Tim is wearing a fleece, hiking boots and forgot his gloves at home. I'm bundled up nicely, but don't have real winter boots, so I'm wearing snowboarding boots. Each one weighs like 4 lbs and they are stiff as a board. A couple times, especially on the way back, I contemplated laying down and just waiting for the spring thaw... But we survived, and took a few shots along the way,” says Cliff! || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: 3 Frame Vertical Pano • Top Frame: 8 Stacked 15 sec exposures, 24MM, F2.0, ISO 2500 • Bottom 2 Frames: Single 30 sec exposures, 24MM, F2.8, ISO 3200. - LINKS: FB.com/cliff.manzone cliffmanzone.pixieset.com . .

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @jeremydavidphotos . My first Milky Way photo of the season! Congratulations to Jeremy David. “I've always wanted to photograph this location, but never quite had the chance before. But, over the weekend I really didn't have a choice but to travel outside of the Tucson area last weekend due to weather. After searching Facebook and Instagram I found out people were heading up to the Phoenix area. I checked the weather and everything pointed to clear skies overnight,” says Jeremy. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Jeremy: …So, I charged my batteries, loaded up all of my gear, took a nap, and watched some TV until it was time to get on the road. At about midnight I headed up towards Phoenix, getting to a parking spot with plenty of time to hike out to this spot and setup. Due to the time of year I didn't have time to do anything other then capture as many images I can with the hopes of stacking them to create what you see here before the sun came up. This is # 1 of 3 captured over the 3 hours I had to image. I would have had this up earlier, but Photoshop kept crashing and I had to re-edit this image 5 times! - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Stacked/Blend • Canon 6D Astro Modified by @SpencersCamera + Canon16-35 f/2.8 L III @ 29mm • Optolong Light Pollution Filter • Sky: f/2.8, ISO 6400, 30sec X 10, Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker • Foreground: Same settings, different edit to bring out details • Edited w/ Photoshop CC. - LINKS: FB.com/JMDavidPhotography jeremydavidphotography.com/astro . .

presents the N I G H T S C A P E R • Photo Award to ... . @naturalwildimage . Little Gilson Butte, Utah. Congratulations to Robert McKendrick. “The beauty of Southeastern Utah seems to have no bounds. Incredible Buttes, Canyons and rock formations. Add the beautiful dark skies and you can be mesmerized,” says Robert. Swipe left to see all 3 images. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - MORE from Robert: The texture and unique formation of this butte led to further scouting. Last week, My friend, J.K., and I setup around the butte using "Sky Guide" to predict the positioning of the Milky Way for an early morning shot. To get more definition into the foreground, we set up our LLL Polaroid 320 & 144 LED lights on the 1600 foot (488 m.) wide butte around sunset. We then took a series of shots through the blue hour and into the night. Camera settings were for the foreground, not the stars, so images were shot on aperture priority and up to 120 seconds long. We returned at 3 am and set up our lights, tripods and cameras in the same positions—photographing the butte this time with the Milky Way in our pre-planned position. - TECHNIQUE & EXIF: Stacked & Composite/Blended • Nikon D750 + Tokina 16-28mm at 16 mm • Sky: 15 sec, f/2.8, ISO 6400 - 7 shots stacked in Sequator to reduce noise • Foreground shots (twilight and astronomical dusk shots with LLL) stacked in Photoshop using varying layer opacities to reduce noise and increase texture/detail • Sky and foreground blended together with a layer mask. - LINKS: mckendrickphotography.com . .
