Sunset Afterburn Over San Diego International Airport 2. Whenever I go capture the aircraft landing at the airport, I love shooting and creating sequential aircraft landings. Basically, this is comprised of multiple images I captured of the plane landing... Then in post, I blend the planes into one image. . . #sandiego #sandiegomag #britishairways #sandiegophotos #torreypines #visitsandiego #sandiego city #aerialphotos #coastline #ocean #socalphotos #beautiful #california #visitcalifornia #sandiegophotos #visitsd #bestofsandiego #dusk #duskphotography #longexposures #sunset #bestofsandiego #sosandiego #sandiegosunset #longexposurephotography #sunsetstream_westside #sandiego_visuals #photooftheday #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofcalifornia #socalphotography #socalphotos #theresandiego #allthingssd

Milky Way Over Lake Cuyamaca. Happy Milky Way Monday!! This was an image I captured earlier in the season. I used a technique in post to mimic focal length blending... where the sky would have been shot at a longer focal length to make the Milky Way bigger in its location... Then blended into the foreground image. . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Ocotillo Wind Turbines Milky Way Single Exposure. No stacking in the sky/foreground for noise reduction. This is a single exposure taken at ISO 12800 f3.2 for 10 seconds with my Sony A7sll. I took this high ISO image to help me set up for a comp. Seeing how clean it was at such a high ISO, I decide to give it a quick edit. . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Storm Clouds. Just a random shot of some very dramatic storm clouds I quickly captured on my iPhone while at work the other day. You can see the rain falling in the distance at the bottom of the image.

Ocotillo Wind Turbines Milky Way 3. One last image from my shoot at this location with Kyle @kyleblackmanphotography It was a great night shooting some new stuff. In this comp, it was funny how one of the Turbine blades is stabbing the Dark Horse Nebula in the rear... It actually helps draw attention to the Dark Horse. Certainly a location to come back to for new comps after I get my Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 Art Lens. . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Ocotillo Wind Turbines Milky Way 2. Another slightly different comp from my night shooting at this location with Kyle @kyleblackmanphotography This was a very cool and different location that I’ve never shot from before. I’m glad I finally made it out here!! . . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Ocotillo Wind Turbines Milky Way. Tonight I decided to head out to this location to shoot the Milky Way. I had planned to get these shots for a while now. I got ahold of Kyle @kyleblackmanphotography and he met me down there. It was great to shoot something new and different. The temperature was over 90 degrees while we were shooting... This definitely resulted in a lot of hot pixels in my images. But thankfully, I came up with a system to get rid of of the majority of them a while back. Definitely a fun night of shooting!! . . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

High Point Lookout Tower Milky Way 3. Another comp from the other night, shooting at this awesome location with Kevin @slworking This is the same comp as the original image I posted, but then I decided to get into some of the frames and throw my flashlight beam into the sky at the Milky Way. I think this is my favorite of the images I got that night. It just ads more interest with me standing in the scene with the flashlight. For post, I did ad some Orton Effect to the image to help soften it and give it some glow. . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

High Point Lookout Tower Milky Way 3. Another image from this spectacular location shooting with Kevin @slworking For this comp I moved up a little closer... Then, I went and stood on the picnic bench with my hands up in the sky and my cell phone in my right hand. I had triggered the camera with my app and a 10 second timer. Again, no corrections intentionally made for the lens distortion in the tower. . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

High Point Lookout Tower Milky Way. I decided to head out to this location with Kevin @slworking and shoot the Milky Way. Kevin discovered this location recently and wanted to go again... Since I’ve never been here before, I was definitely interested in shooting something new. We met near the bottom of the Truck Trail and drove up 13 miles in his 4x4. The trail is very difficult to get to this location and driving there was an adventure in itself. Kevin did a great job handling the truck trail. Once we arrived at the location it became apparent that it was worth the trip. The conditions were awesome!! I intentionally did not correct the keystonig distortion on the tower because I like the effect it had on it. I would definitely like to come back here again in the future. . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Hollywood Sign at Dusk. One last image from my shoot on Mount Lee of the Hollywood Sign. This was the last shot I got of the sign. Several minutes before, a brush fire began and eventually drowned the valley below with smoke. In this image there was more smoke down below than appears... But, I targeted specific luminosity values and made adjustments to reduce the appearance of smoke. I would have loved to stay later into the night and get at least one more set of images... So, I’ll just have to return another time.

La Jolla Coast Tiny Planet. Just playing around with the Spherical Pano built into the DJI Mavic Pro 2. It captures and stitches the pano together creating a Tiny Planet effect.

Full Sturgeon Moonrise Over USD Immaculata and San Miguel Mtn 3. One last image from my shoot of the Full Sturgeon Moonrise Over San Miguel Mtn and The Immaculata at USD. I shot many frames as the moon just started to rise over the mountain to when it cleared up into the sky. This is my favorite frame, because you can definitely tell it’s a full moon, yet still somewhat hidden behind the mountain. I think a frame like this, makes it more compositionally interesting, than the moon being cleared in the sky with nothing blocking/framing it. Again, thanks to @planitphoto for giving me the tools to find this location in advance. I will definitely return here in the future. . . . . . . . . #sandiego_visuals #usd #sceneatusd #universityofsandiego #moon #fullmoon #moonrise #longexposure #sosandiego #longexposurephotography #sandiegocity #nightphotography_exclusive #visitsandiego #anthelioncolor #mySDphoto #shainblumff #night_excl #visitcalifornia #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssdvisit

USD The Immaculata at Sundown. While waiting for the full moon to rise, I captured some basic shots of The Immaculata at USD. The mountain behind it is San Miguel and it’s home to many of the regions radio and TV transmitters. Even though this subject was 3 miles away, the compression of a 600mm focal length helps pull it in. . . . #sandiego_visuals #usd #universityofsandiego #longexposure #sosandiego #longexposurephotography #sandiegocity #nightphotography_exclusive #visitsandiego #anthelioncolor #mySDphoto #night_excl #visitcalifornia #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssdvisit

Hotel Del Coronado Moonrise. Today I decided to go shoot the moonrise from this location with Ev @evgenyyorobephotography Unfortunately, I arrived at the location late... The moon was already rising when I got there. I went straight down to the beach and set up as fast as possible. I didn’t have time to find a spot for the alignment of the moon with the Del’s tower, but I’m still happy with what I got!! This is a single exposure of the scene. . . . . . #sandiego_visuals #hoteldelcoronado #coronado #coronadodogbeach #moon #fullmoon #moonrise #longexposure #sosandiego #longexposurephotography #sandiegocity #nightphotography_exclusive #visitsandiego #anthelioncolor #mySDphoto #night_excl #visitcalifornia #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssdvisit

The Scythe Tree Milky Way Eastern San Diego Mountains. I found this tree not to long ago when I drove out to east county during the day and hiked around. Another photographer found this tree a while back and I’m glad I was able to finally discover it too. I had been wanting to capture the Milky Way from this location and last night I finally did. I took a trip out there with a buddy who likes to stargaze. The conditions were spectacular and since it was August we hoped to spot some meteors... Even though it wasn’t the peak for the Perseids Meteor shower, we weren’t disappointed. I saw several meteors, including a couple that were the biggest and brightest I’ve personally seen. This one literally shot and exploded very low into the atmosphere. It was a sight to behold!! I’m glad I had someone else there to witness this with me because it was so amazing. . . . . . . #milkyway #milkywaychasers #milkyways #milkywaypics #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #milkywayphotography #night_excl #visitcalifornia #lumecube #shainblumff #roycebairphoto #nightphotography_exclusive #topcaliforniaphoto #slikusa #sandiegomagazine #sandiegomag #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofsandiego #bestofcalifornia #photopills #nightmasterofthemonth #theresandiego #allthingssd

Torrey Pines State Beach at Dusk from Above. Today I decided to go out and get this image. Ev @evgenyyorobephotography and Stephen @stephenbayphoto joined me... The clouds overhead looked promising for some nice color!! My goal though, was to get the highway down below full of car light trails. I was also able to get a freight train going by in the distance. It was an enjoyable night to shoot!! . . . . . . #sandiego #sandiegomag #sandiegophotos #torreypines #visitsandiego #sandiego city #lajolla #coastline #ocean #socalphotos #beautiful #california #visitcalifornia #sandiegophotos #visitsd #bestofsandiego #dusk #duskphotography #longexposures #sunset #bestofsandiego #sosandiego #sandiegosunset #longexposurephotography #sunsetstream_westside #sandiego_visuals #photooftheday #nightphotography #topcaliforniaphoto #bestofcalifornia #socalphotography #socalphotos #theresandiego #allthingssd
