Winner Neale Zingle!

During the Live Photog Favorites episode, Neale described for us the process to get his shot to shine like this:

Foreground was shot with my Nikon D850 with the Sigma 14mm f1.8. Six images at 10secs, f/2.5, ISO 400. I cropped the edges and stacked into a pano in post production (Lr & Ps). The sky was also shot using my D850 and Sigma 14mm, mounted on my Skywatcher tracker. Nine images shot at 60 sec, f/2.0, ISO 800. I then cropped edges, stacked all images in AutoPano Giga software, and finished editing in Ps.

We all just INSTANTLY fell in love with Neale’s Milky Way shot! Participants of the live stream weren’t shy about it! Even MaryBeth whose image was narrowly edged out by Neale had only praise to give!

I love this one so much! Hard to compete with an epic Milky Way.

The best shot I have seen from this very well know rock!

“Photog Favorite” is a Monthly Contest for Patrons

Every Month we feature images from our Patrons who support Photog Adventures through  We choose our FAVORITE IMAGE to feature, brag about and encourage people to know this photographer and follow their work!

The month of January the theme was “Best of 2018.” Patrons submitted one image of theirs they considered their best of 2018. The month of February was “Winter.”

Coming up in March the theme is “Glow”. So anything you capture that has a glow to it or the light is glowing or fireflies even! Anything YOU think matches the theme Glow.

Judged Live On Facebook!

Then on Facebook Brendon and I go through all the images and do a typical Monday Moment of Envy feature on each image. Some Photog Favorite episodes we have even had other members of Photog Adventures join us in the judging of the images.
