Hello and welcome to Lonely Speck!
We are Ian Norman and Diana Southern, a married couple with a passion for photography and travel.
Lonely Speck is the home of our night photography and astrophotography adventures. It’s a project to help us learn as much as we can about photographing the Milky Way and sharing those experiences with others so that they can learn how to do it, too.
Here you will find our best efforts to impart our own knowledge of dark sky photography to you. We pride ourselves on the hundreds of images all of you have created and shared with us using the tutorials and articles on Lonely Speck. We hope that you will find as much satisfaction using the tools here as we have had creating them.
We hope that you will join our small community and share your experiences with us. Subscribe to our email list, share your images on our Flickr group, follow us on Facebook, and read about our travel adventures on our travel blog.
Check out our meet-ups and workshops page for more opportunities to connect with us!
Wishing you clear dark skies and happy photographing.
–Ian & Diana
