An Hour at Night at the John Moulton Barn in the Tetons

I just returned from 2 nights of Milky Way photography in Grand Teton National Park and 1 night in Yellowstone during a new moon.

Weather conditions were perfect for me with little clouds which provided a fantastic view of the night sky.

On my second evening out, I spent almost 5 hours at the famous Moulton barns in the Tetons. One shot I wanted to get was a very long exposure of the stars above the Tetons with one of the barns in the foreground.

This photo is the result of my efforts. It shows an elapsed time of one hour, and it is a combination of 15 photos each 4-minutes in duration from approx. 12:44am to 1:44am.

Watch My Newest Online Photo Class for FREE with Aurora HDR Pro

I am very excited to announce the availability of my newest online photo class – and this one is completely FREE!

Last month both a cameraman and a producer from Skillshare flew out from New York to Arizona to film me out in the field and behind the computer using Macphun’s Aurora HDR software. In the online class (there are 2 classes by the way, with the second one being released in a week or 2) I talk first about techniques for shooting HDR photos in the field, and second, processing those photos in Aurora HDR.

If you ever wanted to learn how to shoot multiple exposures for HDR photos as well as process them in the best HDR software out there, this class is for you!

Not only is this class available for free, but you will also receive 3 free months of access to Skillshare’s 1,000’s of online classes by using the link in this email!

Skillshare-1000-900px

My online class, titled Intro to HDR Photography: Shooting and Editing High Dynamic Range, already has over 1,000 students and is the top trending class on the entire Skillshare website – and it has only been available for half a day!

If you are not a member of Skillshare, use this special link to sign up for FREE and enjoy 3 months of access to my course and 1,000’s of others. And keep an eye out for Part 2 of my HDR class, where I will talk much more about editing in Aurora HDR.

Feel free to also share this post with anyone else you think might enjoy either my HDR online class and/or 3 free months of access to Skillshare!


My upcoming ON1 Photo 10 Training Video is getting closer to release

I know a number of people have been waiting for my own ON1 Photo 10 training video and here is a sneak peak at the status. After much preparation I started recording today and have 25 of the at least 80 videos now recorded (viewable by the red tag). Only 1 has been edited so far though (viewable by the green tag). The screenshot only shows a small percentage of the topics covered.

My ON1 training video will be very similar to my 6-hr, 55+ video for Perfect Photo Suite as it is a step-by-step training guide that is modeled off of my 2-day in-person classroom crash courses that I have been teaching for a couple years now.

It includes over 20 class photos you can work on step-by-step with the recordings, as well as free presets, textures, and a couple cloud backgrounds and it goes into more detail than the excellent videos ON1 supplied. Between ON1’s videos and mine you can become an expert at ON1 Photo 10.

I hope to have the recordings done in the next day or two and editing done by the weekend. Pre-orders for the course will open up soon. If interested and you haven’t already done so, contact me so I can add you to my pre-announcement list which will have a great special offer for the course!

Watch my interview next week in the ON1 Pro Series

Yesterday I was interviewed by ON1’s Matt Kloskowski for their upcoming ON1 Pro Series which will feature short talks and video demos from myself and other really cool photographers.

In the interview Matt and I talked about things such as what I see happening in the next 5 years with photo processing, my feelings regarding how much or how little one can do to an image in post processing, what tool for post processing I would like to see that hasn’t been developed yet, and more!

In addition to the interview there will also be available a short video showing how I work with a RAW photo in Capture One Pro and really make the photo come to life in ON1 Photo 10.

In the first week of the series I join fellow pro photographers such as Hudson Henry, Blake Rudis, Scott Wyden, Scott Davenport, Frank Salas, and Liz LePage. Be sure to sign up and start watching the videos next week.
