Landscape Photos - Before and After (Part II)

Landscape Photos - Before and After (Part II)

I posted two photos on my Instagram story last week asking which one you wanted to see featured next in my Before and After series. After nearly 200 votes, the two photos were separated by just one vote! Therefore, I have decided to show you both photos in this blog post.

Landscape Photos - Before and After

Shooting landscapes is what first really got me into photography. The adventures you'd set out on with friends, the new friends made along the way, the incredible places you'd visit - there's just nothing else quite like it. But when I picked up my first DSLR I realized theres a lot more to taking photographs than just finding the right composition, having the proper settings on your camera, and pressing the shutter button.

Making of My Sedona Milky Way Reflections Photo

Above is a shot I made on February 14th, 2016, in Sedona, Arizona. This image was taken at 5:45 AM, just prior to sunrise. Something I tried for the first time with this photo is taking 10 consecutive shots of the sky at a higher ISO (5000) and shorter shutter speed (15s), and then stacking the photos, which gives you awesome pinpoint stars with minimal noise.Here’s a walkthrough of how I made the shot.
