The trail to the Racetrack Playa wasn't too bad especially with the vehicle I was in but I did air down the tires quite a bit and went 45mph to get out of the rhythm of the washboard effect on the trail.
I'm pretty sure Mesquite Flat covers more land, so I'd say those are the most extensive (correct me if wrong).
We ran into her as soon as we arrived and just go to talking shop. I haven't seen her work but judging from the shots she took that night they were pretty good. She is just getting into photography to my knowledge. I think she mentioned she was on a really long road trip. I guess you can do that when you own a pharmacy! Nice girl.
Well in the video you will see a picture I took of the moon right over the mountain. I don't remember my exact settings but I want to say Iso 5000 and 25 seconds. I use a variety of lights. Depending on the shoot it was either just the ambient light, my little lantern I have or my headlamp. There's no wrong way to do it. Just what you think you can work with and control. You could even use the flashlight feature on your phone if you wanted to. It all depends on what you're going for.MidwestDesertRat wrote: ↑Tue May 29, 2018 11:42 amYou have some really nice shots. Ive never spent the night at the racetrack, but it sure seems worth it. Ive visited several times trying to get an iconic photo but have not had any luck.
Forgive me if you discussed this in your video (I had the sound off), but for your Milky Way shots what was your ISO and shutter speed? Also, you had some nice light on your foreground. Was this moonlight and if so, do you remember roughly how full the moon was?
Thank you! The reason why I got the 4runner was to get out to locations like this. You've got some cool panoramas. In my latest video I just uploaded I did some Milky Way panoramas.
