I’ve been on this 2…

Photo Caption: I’ve been on this 2 week road trip all over the Southwest on a night photo mission with @missjessbess and various others along the way... it hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine; but there’s been some very incredible, WOW moments a lot of the times and for that I feel so fortunate... I feel very bad for all the people in all the fires right now losing their homes. I just got word yesterday one of my childhood friends homes was saved in the Carr Fire while her 3 neighbors were not. 😢😢 so happy for her but sad for the people around her.. the smoke everywhere we have gone except Colorado has been insane... —— I took this selfie on Thursday night at Rocky Mountain National Park when I headed there with @missjessbess, @xlj_photography, @megavai & Joe.. Apparently we barely missed @michaelsimmonsphotography1 that night! I kept having to do this shot over because this wasn’t right or that wasn’t right... in the end, my analness about getting my shots made my photo come out much better than I imagined and I feel like I’m walking away with what I would deem is a memorable and EPIC shot in spite of how hard I was being on myself about it prior to getting it on my computer... On location, executing a shot like this is more than just setting up a tripod and a timer. —— Thank you to @tenbabags; I love being a part of the team! This Solstice 24L was exactly the bag I needed to compliment my travel gear; it carries the exact same amount of camera equipment that I put in my @ShimodaDesign bag, but just a lot less extra gear that I would need for backpacking trips or whatnot... 2 bodies, 4 lenses, 2 tripods, my star tracked and all of my accessories and lights! —- This image is a total of 49 Stacked and Blended photos; 22 for the sky, 15 for me, and 12 for the water... All stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker. I was running out of time so I didn’t set up my lights, instead I took my iPhone with it’s flashlight on and placed it facedown on the rocks. The light bouncing off the rocks was perfect! —— SKY ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds - WATER ISO 10000 F2.8 30 seconds - ME ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds —- @tokinausa 11-20mm @ 20 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR & PS —-
