Insomnia :: NY

Insomnia….sounds about right these days. It’s been an awesome, but very busy few months. There has been a lot of great stuff going on with my students over at Light & Landscape, filling print orders (thank you guys for keeping my gas tank full!), weddings, portrait shoots, music shows, newspaper work and travel….but not much of it involves sleeping. Lol  (Shout out to all the sleep deprived entrepreneurs out there chasing their dreams!) Your continued support and confidence in my work is so appreciated! You guys rock!


This shot was taken on a beautiful, clear night a few weeks ago in upstate NY. The stars and the company were glorious. 🙂


The nerdy details: this is a composite of 4 shots at different ISOs to help moderate the noise. The foreground is a 5 min long exposure, the rest were shot for the stars/Milky Way.

      Thank you so much, Jane! It was incredible to see in real life too. You can’t really see the milky way where I live with the naked eye, so its a real treat when I visit somewhere with dark enough skies to just appreciate it real-time.

      Thanks so much! 5 min does a lot to smooth out the water! lol
