Back in 2014 I got my first DSLR on a whim. I remember playing with the kit lens it came with and accidentally catching part of the Milky Way. I was hooked with Milky Way hunting and Nightsky photography ever since. Fast forward a few years and I still get excited to stay up late, get eaten alive by bugs, lug gear to different locations, and hunt for the Milky Way. Thanks to tools like @photopills and techniques from many online resources like @inorman , @brendapetrella , @nickpagephotography, @tonynorthrup (to name a few, there are many more) I am very happy with how far I've come, and excited to keep practicing and improving.

Uno Milky Way, por favor.
When we booked our tour to Salar de Uyuni, we had two things to consider - what would the night skies be like and were we missing any England games? We managed to find a three day window with perfect conditions, and then the clouds came. We were absolutely gutted we couldn't get any shots out on the Salar, but on our second night when we went outside after dinner we were treated to this spectacular sight. Never have I seen the Milky Way clearer, it was perfectly visible to the naked eye and absolutely magical. The amateur photographer that I am forgot to research how to take these shots on my new camera, so instead I opted to be a model for Phil, standing on the ice and gazing at the stars. 📸 credit @pipchad
Light painting is and can be many things. It can control the viewer’s eye. It can be a catalyst for creativity. It can bring life into the shadows of a composition. It can add drama to an otherwise ordinary scene. It can be an artist’s brush used to sweep strokes of illumination onto a landscape to allow us to see into the night in new and previously unimagined ways.
When shooting in Cape Hatteras National Seashore earlier this year, @photographingnationalparks was excited to tackle perhaps the most famous light house in the United States: the eponymous Cape Hatteras Light.
Chris went for a wide-angle composition, drawn by the symmetry of the scene, as well as by the low angle that allowed him to include as many stars as possible. But felt the scene needed a little lighting to help emphasize the primary subject—the lighthouse. If he let the structure stay in relative silhouette, then the visual emphasis would have been on the sky instead.

It takes some motivation to spend the night in -3'C at 14890ft altitude, because a comfortable bed in a hotel not too far is too attractive an option. Our motivation was night photography of our majestic galaxies. How an ordinary night turned into an extraordinary one is simply due to looking harder into the usual; of pointing our cameras to the universe with some patience. It paid off and, I hope, what we captured mesmerises you as much as it mesmerized us.
New favorite summer tradition is dragging @sagemarieeee and @ryan_martz to Jenks lake with me in the middle of the night after a long day of dealing with diabetic children. .
