November 3rd, 2016:
As I’ve said many times here before, getting out under the stars for an Astrophotography shoot is one of the favorite parts of what I do as a photographer. This last week I was able to schedule two back to back session in Death Valley and the first one was for Shelle + Chris who may have just taken part in the second windiest shoot I’ve ever done (the windiest being in Palm Springs earlier this year).
Not to be dissuaded by a little 50mph winds, these two braved the breezy night and I only had my lightstands blown down a couple of times – I think they even found it humorous as I scoured each new location to find rocks large enough to act as weights to hold down my lights and fight the wind.
Anyways, thanks for the amazing night you two and for toughing out the wind! I’ll see you in 9 days for your wedding in Vegas!
