An Amazing Night in Milford and a New eBook on Flatbooks

New eBook – Photographing Children Naturally

We recently published a new book over on Flatbooks called Photographing Children Naturally. Portraiture can be challenging itself, and sometimes even more difficult when working with children. This new eBook by Cheryl Machat Dorskind helps you sort everything out, from selecting your gear to setting it up to keeping track of your client work. She’ll also be interviewed on This Week in Photo next Tuesday, so make sure you tune in!.

We’ve also pulled together a list of a few other books focusing on portraiture that you can check out at this page.

Another Night at Milford

Here’s a little B-roll (with no commentary) from another evening at this same place!

Daily Photo – An Amazing Night in Milford

I just spent three days in Milford Sound, New Zealand. This is about a four hour drive from my house. The bad news was there were no clouds for sunset. The good news was there were no clouds for star shots that night! Cliff and I stayed out there quite late to make sure we got all the shots we wanted! For this one, I tried attaching the Nikon 16mm f/2.8 prime via an adapter to my Sony A7r — it was very easy and worked like a charm! 🙂

    Beautiful star filled night 🙂

  • Pretty cool astro photo here Trey. I wish you took more of them (or share if you have them deep down lightroom, he he). I’m going out tomorrow for another night shot adventure and hope to see some northern lights! Cheers!

    Good luck @frdrickbeaupr:disqus ! 🙂

  • I would love to know how you handled the noise in the star photo. Everytime I try, I feel like the noise is overpowering. Nikon D800, 16-28mm f2.8 lens. My last attempt was using ISO 1600, 30 sec, f2.8. Do you run a denoise program like Topaz, or do you just embrace the noise?

    Excellent Trey! I just got a new lens that goes down to f2.5. Pretty excited for a darrk night to try and get a few more stars than normal. There is a lot of light pollution around this area, but next week I head to Outer Banks, North Carolina. Twelve miles of driving on the beach before we get to our spot. Just might be dark enough lol.
