Two Years of Photog Adventures!

After TWO YEARS of Photog Adventures, we look back on where we have been, some stats and answer questions about what has surprised us most, what we have learned and some of our favorite moments in these past 24 months.

We wouldn’t have lasted two years without you, our listeners! We are very grateful for the time you put into listening to our podcast, coming to our YouTube and Facebook Live presentations, and watching our content on YouTube. It wouldn’t have been so much fun without your comments, facebook messages and your constant support! We have had a blast producing this podcast and all of our other content and have you all to thank for keeping it the fun it is and not feeling like work! 😀 We especially want to thank those Founders of Photog Adventures out there that have been supporting us through Patreon.com for months! We really really appreciate all of you and have plans to bring you even more great content this coming third year of Photog Adventures.

Keep listening and in the second segment I tell the story of when I actually thought Brendon had died! For 10 mins at least, I thought he had finally done it and killed himself accidentally.

Photography Conferences in 2019

We announce our participation in two Photography Conferences in 2019!

Create Photography Retreat in Las Vegas from March 28th – 30th, 2019

The Create Photography Retreat is an experience open to photo lovers of all skill levels who want stellar instruction, TONS of hands-on shooting opportunities, new life-long friends, and a supportive environment.  Our community is built to grow your passion and support your creativity.

The early bird ticket price to attend the conference is $417 (normally $457). Generally, the biggest cost of attending a conference like this is not the ticket price, but the travel cost. Most conference venues make the conference rooms somewhat inexpensive, but charge exorbitant hotel costs to the attendees to stay there.

    Oi!!! You two a-*, remenber that podcasts in another countries are a marginal thing, kind of nerdy. So It’s really hard to find casts in specific themes,that’s why is realy amazing to us find you… We really had to word hard to find you, guys. Hugs from Brazil! PS: It’s really expensive to buy astronomical material arround here, so low Budget tips would bem Nice.

    Hey guys, I’ve been binge listening to your podcasts – love them! Especially the ones with Royce. I was hoping you could do a podcast on proper exposing the milky way, or point me to a good resource. Do you want to expose to the right to preserve highlights similar to other landscape photography, or do you want your bell curve to land in the middle of the histogram?

    Hi Joe – Glad you’re enjoying the podcast. That’s a good idea for the podcast. In the mean time, have you checked out the Photog Adventures YouTube channel? Try this video on How to Properly expose the Milky Way: https://youtu.be/ELMmKfIOFbQ
    Also check out this article on our sister site about shooting under light polluted conditions: https://milkywayphotographers.com/article/2019/03/08/capture-the-milky-way-in-heavy-light-pollution/
    To answer your question here, unless you are shooting under heavy light polluted conditions, place the Milky Way hump to the left of your histogram centerline. Keep in mind that the hump is not the stars in the image, it is mostly sky-glow from airglow or even distant light pollution. The stars are actually brighter than the sky-glow. If you expose to the right, then the stars get pushed off the top of the histogram and end up overexposed. You probably want to capture the color of the stars, and not have them just be white and overexposed. So keep the bell curve to the left of the histogram centerline.
