Last June, I travelled with Aaron King and Brendon Porter of Photog Adventures fame to Crater Lake National Park. If you’re not familiar with Photog Adventures, it is Podcast, a YouTube channel, and Facebook Group that discusses landscape photography with a focus on shooting the Milky Way. We had spent the previous night shooting the Milky Way at Crater Lake and the day before at Bandon, Oregon.
This panorama of eleven exposures was taken with a Sony a7R (ILCE-7R) and a 35 mm f/1.4 AS UMC Rokinon lens. The exposure was at ISO 100 for 2 seconds at f/11.0. The photos for the pano were taken at about 5:15 AM. Processing was done in Adobe Lightroom.
Aaron, Brendon, and I discussed this trip on Episode 41 of their Photog Adventures Podcast. The episode is titled “Oregon Road Trip | Crater Lake Milky Way Awesomeness with Kirk Keyes | Ep 41“.
I’ll be heading back to both Crater Lake and Bandon with Aaron and Brendon in a couple weeks to help them with a workshop. I had a great time photographing with those guys last year and I’m looking forward to our next Photog Adventure.
