Name a spot that you’ve returned to countless times hoping for the perfect conditions? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is one of those spots for me. Every time I visit the Eastern Sierras I return to this spot over and over. I finally got some pretty amazing conditions on a trip back before Christmas with @ingyannajones ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although not the exact conditions I was hoping for it was an epic morning. So I’ll continue to return to this spot with fingers crossed 🤞🏻💕✌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/24-70mm 43mm - f/16 - ISO 100 - 2” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @slikusa ProCF 734 Legs w/200DQ Ballhead #teamslik #slikusa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @cokinusa circular polarizer #cokincreative #trustincokin ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dreamworldimages #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #trapping_tones #ig_masterpiece #ig_podium #splendid_earth #gramslayers #agameoftones #divine_deserts #igsouthwest #yourshotphotographer #master_shots #wonderful_places #westbysouthwest #instagood #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_world_colors

How many slot canyons have you been to in Utah? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This was a pleasant surprise when we stumbled along this little gem of a slot canyon and decided to shoot it as a composite. It’s not very tall, @ingyannajones and I were lying on our backs photographing the curves of the red rock canyon walls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe up in stories or check the link in my bio if you’re interested in learning more about Astrophotography in this unique Utah location. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Let’s run free under starlight...” ~ Butterflies Rising ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/16-35mm GM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Composite 🏜: 16mm - f/11 - ISO 100 - 30” 🌌: 16mm - f/2.8 - ISO 12800 - 6” (20 images stacked for noise) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @slikusa ProCF 734 w/200DQ Ballhead ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #slikusa #teamslik ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #night_dreamworld #night_captures #marvelshots #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #gnarbox #astrophotography #universetoday #milkway #nightsky #nightscaper #starphotography #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #landscape_nightscape #igsouthwest #divine_deserts #superphoto_longexpo #splendid_earth #yourshotphotographer #wonderful_places #instagood #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate

Have you tried Capture One 20? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been loving the new features on @cap@cap@captureonepro 20 especially the revamp of the basic color editor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the revamp capture one has added the slider element, allowing you to adjust the hue, saturation, and lightness of specific colors, without having to adjust the overall white balance or go into the advanced editor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best thing about this is that I can use the luma range mask tool to only effect very specific colors within my mask as I’ve done with the added glow in this shot taken out at Joshua Tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To learn more about @captureonepro check out the link in my stories and be sure to swipe through to see before and after as well as a sped up version of the edit. #captureone20 #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/24-70 GM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 60mm - f/11 - ISO 100 - 0.3” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Edited in @captureonepro ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dreamworldimages #scape_captures #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #trapping_tones #ig_masterpiece #ig_podium #splendid_earth #gramslayers #agameoftones #divine_deserts #igsouthwest #yourshotphotographer #master_shots #wonderful_places #earthofficial #westbysouthwest #instagood #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #jaw_dropping_shots #earth_escape #ig_world_colors #roamtheplanet

What are your plans for this week? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m taking off chasing weather and clouds in the eastern Sierras. I have shots on my buckets list for years and fallen victim to what I have now termed “the curse of the Sierras” ... no clouds or clouds that look like they will be epic and disappear when the light is right. But not this time, I’m coming for you 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyways took this shot back in September with @rachel_jones_ross in her one of her favorite places, and I’m so grateful to have shared this special spot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Create beauty with every day you are given.” - Elizabeth Gilbert ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/12-24mm G ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Composite (2 images // Sky & Foreground Shot w/the same settings) 12mm - f/16 - ISO 100 - 1/4” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @cokinusa Circular polarizer #cokincreative #trustincokin ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @slikusa ProCF 635 Legs w/200DQ Ballhead #teamslik #slikusa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dreamworldimages #scape_captures #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #trapping_tones #ig_masterpiece #ig_podium #splendid_earth #gramslayers #agameoftones #imagesofcanada #yourshotphotographer #master_shots #wonderful_places #earthofficial #instagood #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_color

Who has tried photographing the night skies with something other than a wide angle? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For this shot, I actually used my 55mm f/1.8 lens to capture the foreground and the sky. It’s really neat to see all that detail in each constellation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @ingyannajones @megavai and I had set out to really scout this entire area in Utah, I had been here several times before and each time left me wanting to go back. We had only planned to stay a day or two, but got sucked in and spent a week instead. And I was sure glad I did walking away with some of my favorite shots ever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I keep hitting the space bar, but I’m still on earth” - 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s only two spots remaining on our Otherwordly Badlands Workshop, so if you’re interested in learning more about photographing the night sky from start to finish in this alien landscape, check out the link in my bio 👽✌🏻💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/ @zeisscameralenses 55mm ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Composite ⛰: 55mm - f/11 - ISO 100 - 30” (Shot during blue hour) 🌌: 55mm - f/1.8 - ISO 12800 - 4” (20 images stacked for noise) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @slikusa ProCF 734 Legs w/200DQ Ballhead #slikusa #teamslik ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nights_dreamworld #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #gnarbox #astrophotography #universetoday #milkway #nightsky #nightscaper #longexpoelite #landscapenightscape #werutah #igsouthwest #divine_deserts #superphoto_longexpo #wonderful_places #earthofficial #instagood #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #nightphotography_exclusive #exploretocreate #trav3lr #earth_escape #sonyphotogallery

Who has kicked themselves for walking away from a sunrise or sunset thinking that it wasn’t going to fire up, and then it did? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was out with @ingyannajones in @deathvalleynps waiting for hours for the sunset and it didn’t look like it was going to do anything due to heavy cloud cover. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So we started walking back to the car, when all of a sudden we were surrounded by neon pink all around. I ran back as quick as I could to get this shot. With not much time to find the comp I was hunting a few minutes earlier I setup at this one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You would’ve thought I had learned my lesson not to walk away from a location until it was dark, as I had the same experience in the Grand Canyon last year 🤦🏼‍♀️ but all in all I think it worked out quite nicely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let’s just say I’m not walking away until it’s dark for the rest of the year at least. Don’t you love it when you actually have to turn down saturation on a shot? ✌🏻💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #son#sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @sonyalpha A7riii w/16-35mm GM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Focal length blend (16mm & 35mm) 16mm/35mm - f/16 - ISO 100 - 5” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @slikusa ProCF 734 Legs w/ 200DQ Ballhead #slikusa #teamslik ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @cokinusa Circular Polarizer #cokincreative #trustincokin ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dreamworldimages #sonyalpha #sonyimages #sonyalphasclub #landscapes #landscapephotomag #trapping_tones #ig_masterpiece #ig_podium #gramslayers #agameoftones #divine_deserts #igsouthwest #master_shots #wonderful_places #westbysouthwest #instagood #beautifuldestinations #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #jaw_dropping_shots #earth_escape #ig_world_colors
