Lost in Thought by Michael Shainblum

*Best viewed on black!* Check out this recent article I did, showing my favorite places to shoot the Milky Way! I have also released a new tutorial showing how you can process your Milky Way image using Lightroom CC, check it out here. I am sure there are a few technical questions to be answered, so I will address how the photo was taken for a moment. This image is an 85MM photograph of the Galactic Core rising behind a lone tree on a hill. The tree is on top of a hill and I am standing at the bottom, giving me the ability to move around and plan the exact position to catch the Galaxy rising in the right spot. Also giving me the ability to get a clean Milky Way rising right above the horizon without a ton of light pollution. The image is a mix of two different photos, one 50 second photo taken of the Galaxy. Which uses a star tracker device that follows the stars and allows you to take long exposures without star blur. Then the 2nd photo is 50 secounds without the star tracker for the tree and the hill. The positioning of the Milky Way has been left natural to what I viewed in person. These photos were taken no more then 1 -2 minutes apart. Currently to take an image like this in one exposure and retain this amount of quality is not possible. In a few years it will most likely be possible, due to the development of better high iso sensitivity cameras. I actually took this image over a year ago and have been working really hard tweaking the colors and deciding what I wanted to say about the image. Its a difficult image to describe and I know there will most likely be some disconnect with the photo, even after reading this description. But thanks for checking it out!
