Someone Should Pick This Person Up
[Comments enabled]

Someone is making her way back to the US from New Zealand.

I'm biased.  But, with that said, this is an utterly-amazing shot -- and it's wildly-reduced res too, on purpose.  The raw file is probably something unbelievable, which I'll get to see reasonably soon.

 

Sarah is young with no dependents, fit, cute (I know it shouldn't matter but you know damn well it does) and has a Passport she enjoys using.  Being "on the road" suits her.  She can shoot like this all day long (some of her wildlife shots are utterly insane.)

And unlike the days of old where you had to wait for film to be developed you can have and use the work now.

Is there anyone still out there that uses talent like this in the field?  If so..... she's coming into Hartsfield tomorrow night. smiley

Awesome photo. Can you share what type of camera and lenses she is using? When I was younger and in high school, I loved taking star trails at night with 35 mm and would love to get back into it. Any suggestions for a reasonably priced digital starter camera would be greatly appreciated.

Also Joe Rogan had Chris Kresser and Dr Joel Kahn on a recent podcast debating the merits of a plant based diet and debated the never ending saturated fat and cholesterol debate. Joe did a good job keeping them on track and not allowing them to talk over each other. Chris is a former vegan who is now more paleo and Dr Kahn and a cardiologist who is a vegan and owns 3 vegan restaurants.

That's a Rebel T3i believe it or not..... but with a Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 on it. Sarah has a bag full of lenses and like most people that are serious about their photography (and abilities with it) she's got far more in glass than she does in camera bodies.

That's a full-manual lens -- no auto anything, and you might have to send one or two back before you get one that's sharp edge-to-edge (consistency is not their strong suit), but when you do get a good one, well.... you see what it can produce.

Stick that same lens on a full-frame (like a 5d3) and it gets even better.

You don't need $5,000+ worth of camera gear to get shots like that. You do need to have your **** together, however.

**** - I only know a few "men" in her age group, and I think they honestly couldn't hold a candle to her IQ and experience wise.

And all the rest of the "males" I know in her age cohort I know are soy-boys with no drive other than to play video games and whatever the latest replacement for Pokemon Go is.

Good luck to her.

Anyway, astrophotography was never my strong suit - I prefer stargazing and maybe a telescope or so. Photography has gotten to be a chore for me as I've aged. I'm glad she's getting to live a bit - so many of us didn't take advantage of the opportunities at her age.

Just a beautiful capture.

I wish her luck, she's in the same spot I am it sounds like. There are very few good men her age. And there are very few good women my age as they have destroyed their franchise. The only place I see a reasonable concentration of either is in the rural/ag communities... and they have their problems too.

I just left the Big Bend area and I started to buy a camera before I left home.
