Today’s Guest –


Wayne Pinkston Interview

Wayne starts out my telling us about how he plans out his entire Milky Way season. Yes, it’s all planned out. He talks about how he discovered his love of Milky Way photography when he was on a trip to the Southwest a few years ago. When he started out shooting photos of the Milky Way he used to make shots of the Milky Way. But now his photos are focused on interesting foregrounds with the Milky Way in the background.

He discusses his approach to lighting the land, exposure, panoramas, processing, decreasing noise, masking, Photoshop, cameras, and lenses.

After Wayne shares all his best photo secrets with us, he then tells us an awesome story about a one of his shots. Like the time he took a photo of a Predator with the Milky Way. Yes, a Predator, like in Aliens vs. Predators!

Wayne will be presenting at Royce Bair’s First Annual NightScaper Conference May 1st – 3rd, 2019 in Moab, Utah. Photog Adventures will be presenting as well. You can find a link to this conference a little further down this post.

Photography Conferences in 2019

We have two Photography Conferences in 2019 that we are participating in!

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.
