Shot of the Week: Autumn Leaves and Starry Skies (Nevada, USA)

Shot of the Week: Autumn Milky Way on

After a full evening of field work for our latest Lonely Speck production, the Milky Way floats above the yellow aspens and majestic evergreens of Thomas Creek in autumn in Reno, Nevada on October 22, 2014. The full image plus a video treat await those who continue to the full post.

The above photo was taken with the Sony a7s and Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 lens.

On Photographing the Milky Way

We’re really excited about our new vignette, On Photographing the Milky Way, which we just finished up last night (right before Ian took the above still). Watch it on Vimeo, and see if you don’t get the urge to try your hand at Milky Way photography.
