Been awhile since I’ve posted anything here but letting you all know I’m still around on occasion. Most of my photos have moved on to my instagram account, under phantom_vogel if any of you are instagrammers. Anyhow, here is a photo from my stay up north at my brother’s family cabin in Oakhurst Ca. This is a single image capture (brightened in lightroom) of the night sky out there, where little light pollution exists, so the milky way can clearly be viewed with the naked eye.
Taken with my Samsung NX500 16mm, f3.5, Iso 800, 25sec exposure
Since it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything here, I thought I’d leave a little night capture image to show you that i’m still around… albeit a bit reclusive from wordpress posting as my image upload space is peaking it’s limit. Hope you still enjoy the few images I still enigmatically leave behind! 😉
I had just purchased a shutter remote for my camera with an interval timer and thought I’d try some star trailing shoots. This is my second attempt at this using a compilation of just 62 images at 30 second exposure in 1 minute intervals (30sec capture 30 seconds processing time) and 400iso.
One of the few meteor streaks I was able to capture on camera during Saturday’s Geminid meteor shower. With the dozens that I was able to see with my own eyes, I found out how NOT so easy it was to actually capture one on camera! With 3 hours of continually shooting at 20-30 seconds exposures, I think I was able to actually get only 4 to 5 of these streaks through the camera eye, and never more than a single one each time, even though there were several moments where I saw 2 or more passing just seconds apart!
Single image processed in lightroom.

Sorry followers, it’s been quite awhile since I last logged in or uploaded anything! I spent the past labor day weekend at my brothers place right near the beach in Oxnard Ca. and decided to take a stroll along the beach Saturday night and get a shot or two. I was pretty pleased with this one as I was able to bring out the milky way just a little bit in this single image using only lightroom. Hope you enjoy!
Oddly enough, this strange cloud gave me a craving for some krispy kreme doughnuts! 😉
Appearing much like a speck of dirt in an egg yolk. I had just rediscovered some photos from 2012 when the planet Venus had been in visible alignment with the sun. I had shot these images using my Canon ELPH 500 through 3 pairs of sunglasses and a tabletop reflector telescope.
