As much as I love the camera on the new iPhone 7 Plus, there’s just something magical about using a DSLR to capturing a moment. I shot this using a mini tripod, a timed exposure, and my old trusty Nikon D600.
I scrolled back and looked at some of my recent blog posts using my iPhone, and I’m just not satisfied with the results. I guess I’m going to have to start lugging my DSLR with me everywhere. Hah!
By the way, I wanted to share a couple photos from a trip I took recently. Here’s a sneak peak–I’ll post more soon.

Ps. Thank you everyone for all the support. I’m reading them all your messages and I will respond to you soon. I’m just taking the moment to reflect, meditate, and edit photos. ^_^
Photo of the Milky Way created from 30 stacked photos.
I shot a time lapse last night and got some pretty nice pictures of the Milky Way. The photo pictured above was created from 30 photos, with a median stack. Shot at 3200 ISO, a single image had a decent amount of noise.
A single photo of the Milky Way with noise.
Notice the amount of image noise in the darker areas. I added some noise reduction, but it still looked kind of janky around the edges.
