Albert Dros has been a great friend to Lonely Speck over the last few years, sharing with us his experiences shooting landscape astrophotography around the world. We had the pleasure of meeting him in his native environment of the Netherlands when we traveled through Europe last spring. A few weeks ago, Albert messaged me about his plans to photograph the Milky Way behind an erupting volcano. In this article, Albert Dros recounts his personal experience planning and shooting the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala.
While much of our three weeks in New Zealand was met with rain and clouds, we found a bit of luck when we arrived at Lake Tekapo. Situated in the largest dark sky reserve in the world, Lake Tekapo is one of the world’s premier places to view and photograph the night sky. Join me on a night out shooting astrophotography in New Zealand with my first ever “Astrophotography on Location” vlog.
Lonely Speck visited B&H in New York City to talk on the B&H Photography Podcast. Listen in on our interview all about astrophotography!
Wow! We had more than one hundred other friends and astrophotographers attend the first ever Lonely Speck Meetup in Trona Pinnacles, California on July 30th, 2016. It was a night of meeting many new friends from all over the world in one of the most spectacular places to see the night sky. I surprised Diana (and everyone else) by asking Diana to marry me. (She said “YES!”) Here’s a summary of the amazing night we had with so many of you at the 2016 Lonely Speck Meetup.
These are a few of my favorite things that I learned about astrophotography in 2015.
