Maricopa night sky

I was asked to shoot the night sky by the editor of the InMaricopa magazine.  I took that challenge, and wondered how the heck I was going to pull it off.  After a bit of scouting and multiple calls to my mentor, I found it.  I set up camp and waited for the sun to go down.  After it was completely dark I started firing away, trying to hone into the setting that worked best.  I finally got what I was looking for, and after a while of photoshop and doing a fun little composite, here it is!

Excited to see it on a double page spread when the magazine comes out in a few weeks.  I love seeing my work published.  I've worked for InMaricopa for almost 3 years and enjoy all the people I get to meet while on assignments shooting for stories they write.

This was definitely a learning experience for me.  Didn't realize how tricky night shooting was until I was thrown into it.

I'm still quite a horrible blogger...and I wish I could get better.  Life has been pretty hectic.  Have absolutely NO photos of my kids for April!!!!  aaah!

Packing is going well...slowly and surely.  We spent all memorial day packing.  It was great seeing what TWO bodies could pack in one day.  More than I was able to do in the past few weeks.  Excited and yet nervous for our move, but know it is time for our move up to town.
