Great show for beginners AND experienced Astrophotographers

Jeff Harmon really nailed it with his description during the intro of the last episode. I wish I had this podcast when I was figuring out astrophotography for myself, five years ago. In that time I’ve run two residential summer camps in locations with relatively dark skies (currently in Southeast Elbert County, CO). I have immediate access to some awesome places. I feel like an amateur could listen to any single episode and glean the information that took me years to learn about the basics of astrophotography. Fun podcast, awesome guests, and I love that they discuss mistakes and how they learn new things by making them or not realizing that they could have done something differently.

Solid podcast from two nice dudes

I’m a listener and fellow landscape photography podcaster (Hey fellas). I think this podcast is quite solid. I appreciate how hard it can be to produce a quality podcast on this topic and these guys do a great job of it. Their enthusiasm is intoxicating and I love hearing from them interview some of the same guests I have with a different take. I can admit that not every episode excites me, but when they have great guests on and talk about stories with them, it’s always entertaining! Keep up the great work!

We get a second opportunity this year to hang out with our favorite Milky Way Photography Master Guru Royce Bair along with all of you who could attend the LIVE Facebook Q&A!

It is always a privilege to talk Milky Way Photography with Royce Bair and this hangout was no different! We begin hearing about Royce's recent trip to Palouse Falls doing Milky Way Photography on the dangerous cliff edges there. The challenges dealing with multiple photographers in one location and doing Low-Level Lighting to share with all. Royce also updates us on the situation for low-level lighting in National Parks telling us which parks in the area are allowing it while still not allowing the old tradition of light painting.

Then the Q&A starts with awesome fans on our Facebook Live Stream and we go over many topics ranging from best way to bring out the Milky Way core without looking overly processed to which camera body gives us the best smoothest astro shots despite its low megapixel count. Hint it is a Sony!

Royce takes some time to teach us his tips for handling stars between tree branches when doing star tracking or stacking photography, how working WITH the moon can be amazing for your photography and reminds us about the Mars Opposition occurring right now.

Come join us and learn from the great man who brought us the eBook Milky Way Nightscapes which you can buy a copy for yourself here: https://goo.gl/9F9PPf

We are crazy privileged to be joined today by Landscape Photographer Extraordinaire Erin Babnik! We got to pick the brain of Erin and learn so many fantastic tips that only PART of those tips could fit in one podcast! The entire interview with Erin is going to come out for our Patrons next Monday. If you want to hear that part of the episode, please join us at https://www.patreon.com/photogadventures and you will have full access to this episode and all of our Monday Interview podcasts.

See Brendon's secret Photography project now on YouTube: https://youtu.be/liEatPivAFM

Erin shares with us exclusive behind the scenes info about two new pictures of hers that have not been fully processed and released yet.

In the first story, we get inspired by her understanding of the Dolomite area where she captures an image that you have to know the terrain so well to be in the right place at the right time! Then in the second story, working through challenging weather conditions in the Iceland Highlands, Erin comes away with a composition based on a hidden gem that most likely no one will ever be able to recreate!

Rounding out the episode, Erin shares with us a favorite post-processing technique of hers - Color Theory - and shares with us a cliff's notes version of how to accomplish quality color theory in your images.

For the full story, please read her article here: https://www.photocascadia.com/creative-applications-of-color-theory-in-landscape-photography/

Then a piece of gear that she wouldn't be without is her telephoto lenses and she shares with Brendon her favorite lens or two and how she uses layering to build depth when using such a long Focal Length.

Rank #6: Royce Bair | Single Image Milky Way Photography vs. Star Tracking Milky Way Photography | Ep 76

Podcast cover
Read more
Has Star Tracking made Single Image Milky Way Photography just a waste of time? The answer is NO! With Royce Bair in studio we get some pros and cons of both types of Milky Way Photography and hear from the Master Milky Way Photographer how to best take advantage of our time out there under the stars and get the most out of our images whether or not you do any star tracking.

Royce shares with us some post-processing techniques he likes to use to reduce the noise in his single image photography using Nik Collections DFine tool as well as going for the small effort of a mini stack to reduce noise.

Royce continues on to talk about his use of a astro-modded camera and the benefits that come from that as well as his rule of thumb he likes to follow for what makes an image an Single Image, Stacked, Blend or Composite. Along with that he gives his thoughts on the ethics of divulging whether someone used a composite to get an image they have shared or sold as a print.

We go LIVE on Facebook for Podcast 77 and have a discussion about Rusty Parkhurst's recent article on https://improvephotography.com/ "9 Tips to take your landscape photography to the next level". In our Landscape Photography, we all get there where we are enjoying our progress and have put in our practice of getting our f-stop right, bracketing like champs exposing for the highlights, composing great images, staying and waiting for good light and going the extra mile in our post-processing but then we hit a plateau. What can you do to get off that plateau and turn your landscape photography up to 11?

During the discussion we actually are lucky to have had the delays with the tech when trying to go live for an hour and a half! Because Rusty Parkhurst was able to join us and we got instant feedback and comments from the great guy while going through his article! Listeners and Rusty chime in all the way through this podcast and it was a lot of fun for everyone involved! This is definitely something we would like to do more of in the future!

Rank #16: Escalante Slot Canyons & a Drone-Assisted Family Rescue! | Ep 88

Podcast cover
Read more
For the first time, Brendon has taken Photog Adventures through the Slot Canyons in Escalante. Drew and Brendon hit up Spooky Gulch and Peek-a-Boo Slot. Sharing first impressions of the drive there and the challenges of hiking the area and how they definitely brought too much gear along with them on the hikes. They make Aaron jealous as they describe the many arches down there and a spot that would be just amazing for a vertical Milky Way that we definitely have to do before the season is over!

Then after all the waxing poetic and romantic about the amazement of the experience, they describe a harrowing experience where a mother and two little kids frantically approaches them as they are leaving the canyon. This mother split up from her parents and daughter trying to find a way out of the canyon with her two little kids but now the parents and daughter have not made it up yet! It had been three hours since they ran out of water and this woman was scared for the real possibility of losing her family to the elements! Between Drew's Drone and the experience of Mountain Goat Hartely, the guys are able to locate the missing half of the family and give Hartley the exact position to go find this family to rescue them and help them out safely.

The description doesn't do the story justice, listen to the podcast, it makes you excited to be a part of humanity hearing how everyone grouped their talents together to rescue this family.

In this second to last episode of 2017 we go over some of the major things we learned through more practice in our Landscape Photography and Astrophotography. Some of these can be obvious and are things we all know, but until you are out there enough and recognize when you are NOT doing them DESPITE KNOWING them or when you realize you are doing them just a little wrong it can make a big difference to your photography.

After a year of going out to over 65 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS for photography in 2017 Brendon and I have learned a LOT about where our strengths and weaknesses lie. Thanks for being a part of this adventure in 2017 and we can't wait to report that we are practicing what we are preaching in this podcast!
