Swipe to edit 👉📲 B&A
Hey everyone! I'm starting to accumulate way to much photo and video from all my production traveling so from today and on I want to challenge myself to make 1 post a day for the next 10 days and telling you all about my experiences. Let's hope I can push myself enough to be more productive. I've also created a new Facebook page (I know so outdated in 2019 😂) to have one more outlet for my creativity and be able to share more of my workflows with everyone. In case you want to follow search for Gon Laserna Visual Artist on FB.
Day 1 of 10 postchallenge. •Why Raw is so Powerful•
Today I'm sharing something a bit different, the original photo was taken by my talented friend and mountain man @mururesilvestre who is always surprising me with a different approach to astrolandscapes. We where not really doing anything specific just drinking tea and chilling in between photo sessions (we always use our RGB lights when going on these trips, and this night started out very dark), Gabo got this awesome shot with his Nikon D750 on a 85mm 1.8 Nikor lens with a 3 sec expo, f3.2 iso 1100. So basically you can recover an insane amount of info shooting raw (as most of you know), I was super impressed with the color change without destroying the image. To make it clear it's a composite and I made a sky replacement with one of my own MW shots, also tried to maintain the original background blur adding it on the sky in post using the tiltshift plugin in PS. Pffffuu gotta end this crazy rant! 😅 Hope you liked my style of edit, I'll post more of my stuff and workflow soon. Bye!
In 1994, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake rumbled through Los Angeles at 4:30 a.m. knocking out the power citywide. It was eerily dark, darker than ever — no streetlights, no cars. Residents, awoken by the shaking, went outside and looked up at the sky. It was flush with cosmic bodies that had been invisible up to that point — twinkling stars, clustered galaxies, distant planets. Then people became anxious: what was that large silvery cloud swallowing the Earth? It looked so sinister that they called 911! That cloud was the Milky Way. 😱🌌
When I took this photo, the only source of light was the moon. At 76.7% full, it hindered the naked-eye visibility of the Milky Way a bit, but I could have sat there all night humbled and jaw-dropped by the spiral arm of our galaxy, a thick ribbon of stars running across the sky. Cameras don’t do it justice; it was real diamonds on black velvet. I could literally see the stars spinning. It’s no wonder L.A. residents called 911 — it looks like the entire sky is falling. It’s truly a tragedy that we are cut off from the stars, only seeing constellations at planetariums or on computer screens. This diminishes our sense of the universe and our place in it.
One way to help protect our skies is by visiting a certified “Dark Sky Place.” The @idadarksky program uses your tourism dollars to help conserve and protect these rare and fragile locations for the benefit of future generations. If your schedule aligns, I recommend visiting during a new moon when the sky is truly unaffected. 🌑 I want to live, literally, starry-eyed. Don’t you? 🤩
~ Le Port, sous le soleil ~
Sous les rayons du soleil
Sort Le Port, la ville du Port,
La plus petite commune de La Réunion par sa superficie (16 km2) et la seule commune de la Réunion qui ne prend pas d’altitude (Max a 110 mètres) , comme le le faisait remarquer un ami et historien
D’ici, des hauteurs de La Possession, belle vision,
De voir Le Port s’ouvrir sur la mer
Mer au delà de laquelle il fallait jadis partir pour découvrir d’autres horizons
Au loin, loin et en contrebas,
Se trouve la ville du Port,
Éclairée par les rayons du soleil
