#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

1, 2, 3, or 4? I decided to process the foreground and the sky cool and warmer and see which color combo works best. Thoughts? Cool Warm, CC, WW, WC... (the warm sky isn’t THAT warm but it’s warmer than the cool one) —- @missjessbess and I took off for Cali a few weeks ago and this is one of the comps we got. We can hiked out here at about 1am, set up lights and then waited for the MW to crest the horizon. I used a single LumeCube with warming filter on 1% in the arch and a Luxli light set to warm on a tripod at 40% bouncing off the surrounding rocks... —- Sky- 25 stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 8seconds - Foreground ISO 3200 F2.8 30 seconds —- #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

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: 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... I’m very curious to see when the water dries out of the valley, what those changes are... —- I took this on a trip last year with @missjessbess and we got blessed with an unexpectedly amazing sunset with such vibrant colors and array of clouds.. I often pass by the non-night images as most know but this one caught my eye and decided to post it... —- ISO 100 F18 .5 seconds Processed in LR @tokinausa 16-28 @ 28 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —- #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 #goparks #nationalparks #nationalparklife #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #nationalparkgeek

#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

Which coloring do you like 1, or 2? And who plans on doing #TheGreatMilkyWayChase this year? - So last summer on #TheGreatMilkyWayChase we ended up on the playa! @ryantoswald and I headed out there to meet up with @smpetersonphotography and company for a couple days of shooting the stars.. Ryan asked me to drive that crazy road and boy did I drive the f*ck out of it! We got there just in time for sundown and I missed finding a comp in time to shoot blue hour... so I ended up using a lume cube in my hand and since I didn’t have something to bounce the light off of, I used a water bottle as a kind of diffuser... —- Focus Stack 20 images sky 20 images foreground ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds Processed in LR & PS —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #sliktripods #mycanonstory #longexposure_shots  #nightimages  #nightshooterz  #nightshooters  #nightpics  #milkywaygalaxy  #astrophotography  #astrophoto  #astro_photography_  #astro_photography  #longexposure  #longexpohunter #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark  #yourshotphotographer #naturephotography #adventurephotography #landscapephotography   #allaboutadventures

#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

Pick 1 or 2? I drew up the shadows from the rocks and lightened the image a bit on #1... —- I took this end of June on the #GreatMilkyWayChase at a hidden arch outside of Las Vegas... I was on a mission with @ryantoswald to finish the final nights of then chase and I had previously scoped this one out and knew it should line up! We made this a super short evening and just got a few shots and headed out. I remember we were dragging so hard by this point of the chase! I was using a crop sensor lens on my 6d because I had dropped my camera and lens early on in the chase that month!

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday heading out with @missjessbess right now to play with out @slikusa trackers and thought I would throw up this 12 min shot from last summer! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ 12 minute exposure... I was going to head to sleep for a bit but I decided since I just finished editing this one, I may as well post it.. I was talking to my sponsor @slikusa a couple days ago, bragging about how I had gotten a 12 minute image off the Slik ECH-630 tracker and then I realized I had never edited or posted it!! Well, I did now and here it is along with the settings screen shot so you can see how long the exposure was... I have a very minute amount of trailing in this image taken at 35mm but it really is so little that I can’t find it now that I’m looking on here.. now that I’m used to the tracker, it only takes me about 3 minutes to polar align and then get started shooting; there was definitely a slight learning curve and I hope to put out a tutorial with Slik soon! —- This was during #TheGreatMilkyWayChase in June and I was in Death Valley shooting next to @smpetersonphotography that night. I had cruised out with @ryantoswald to meet up with Shaun and company and we had a grand old night shooting the stars.. I didn’t know if the Slik tracker could successfully pull off 12 minutes with a 6d and a Canon 24-70, but I had done 6 min previously and thought it was worth a shot... thoughts??? —— ISO 200 F2.8 725 seconds @canonusa 24-70 @ 35mm @canonusa 6dmk1 @slikusa ECH-630 Star Tracker @slikusa 634-CF —- . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #mstracylee #artofvisuals #milkyway #startracker #travelphoto #naturephoto #naturephotography #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix #awesome_shots #awesome_globepix #awesomeshot #awesome_captures #awesome_photographers #awesome_naturepix #awesome_earth #earth_expo #earth_shotz #earthcapture #milkywaychasers #canonusa #teamcanon #slikusa #tokinausa

I was waiting for the Milky Way to move over and line up with the river so I Shot this while I waited... the light on the mountains is a result of the nearby town of Springdale!

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I need to go back soon!! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Part of my El Paso trip to meet my family I had never met before, also included a couple side adventures. Including this one to White Sands national Monument. --- My brother, Rick took me and my niece to shoot photos on the dunes in her sweet 16 dress. We were rushed for time, so we got out there late, and we were battling cloudy skies. The park closes at sunset so to be able to stay after you have to get a back country camp spot and backpack in a mile through the dunes to your camp spot. Thanks to @Jaxsonpohlmanphotography for the info on this one!! Your photos there inspired me for sure on this trip. --- I have to admit I'm pretty thrilled about how this photo turned out in spite of all the set backs. In her hand she is holding a lumecube which both lit her and the sands up, as well as gave the entire image a mystical feel. ______ This is 4 images stacked in starry landscape stacker for noise reduction as well as a single image for my niece in the foreground. Sky: ISO1250 F2.8 25 seconds Foreground: ISO2000 F2.8 10 seconds (because I didn't want her holding her arm up forever in the shots) I used the wifi app on the Lume cube to have the cube go off at 1/4 power for 1/4 of a second. @tokinausa 11-20 @canonusa 70d @slikusa 634-cfl _________ #milkyway #milkywaychasers #NatGeospace #nightphotography #night_excl #nightphoto #nightimages #globalcapture #supreme_nightshots #tokinausa #slikusa #ig_shotz #ig_shotz_le #igpodium_night #rsa_night #insta_worldz #long_exposure #waycoolshots #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #tracyleephotos #lumecube

Do you like 1 or 2 (grass or no grass)?? I feel so lucky to have been able to go to tour @NASA at @NasaKennedy this past weekend culminating with the launch of the @spacex #Falcon9 #DragonCapsule.. if you didn’t get to see my stories (and I still have more to post), they’re in a highlight on my profile here.. —- We toured NASA all day on Friday including heading to the VAB which on top of being a huge massive building, is where they put the rockets together!! #Columbia and #Challenger pieces are buried on the 16th floor of the building... we got walk around on launch pad 39b, then 39a where Falcon9 was for some amazing photos &met @astro_kjell too. then headed to the countdown clock where @jimbridenstine & @astro_cabanabob spoke to us about the space program &our social media involvement! —- We came back to NASA at 12:30 am to head to the causeway where they had a roped off grassy area for us to set up... this is where things went a little downhill... the area I chose ended up being on a giant ant hill and I ended up being covered in ants and bitten all over! I set up 2 cameras and tripods in the midst of all of this, and tried to get focused and start shooting star trails which I wasn’t able to do prior to launch. When the falcon 9 took off, I started my shutter, video on one and this photo on the other. 25 seconds in, this one stopped and I didn’t realize it for another 10. Disappointed, I started it again &got the rest of the launch. Then I set my shot to shoot star trails &ended up getting the rocket landing 400 miles away in my shot! I had no idea how this was going to turn out when I edited it, but was able to fill in the short gap in post! I found ants in my pants when I got back to the hotel later that night lol! —— T hank you @mikekillianphotography For all the advice for my first ever launch!
