5th Daily Deviation and Interviews

Thu Mar 6, 2014, 6:01 PM
Hello all :wave:

After basically pulling an all nighter last night taking images and conducting a night sky photography workshop, I woke up at lunchtime today to discover a very pleasant surprise.  I have been awarded my 5th Daily Deviation for my image "Taste The Rainbow"

Taste The Rainbow by CapturingTheNight

Huge thanks must go to :iconlaurelin-cosplay: for suggesting the image and the legendary Nancy :iconanoya: for featuring it as a DD

It is quite surprising to me how much this image has been accepted by the public, both on here and elsewhere on the net.  For a long time I hesitated to even upload it as I thought it was just another standard "Milkyway Bow" image that are a bit overdone these days (But I guess you can say that about a lot of photography).  I came across it again recently after it had been sitting on my computer for over half a year and I decided to finally upload it.

Thank you so much to everyone for all the comments, watches and likes.  I'll hopefully get around to answering all the comments soon.

______________________________________________________

I have been involved in a few interviews lately.  At the start of the year I was filmed for a documentary on astrophotography in Australia.  The filmmakers interviewed about 15 fellow astrophotographers over a few days and are currently sifting through the mountain of footage they collected to produce the final film.  I'll let you know when it launches.

Plans are also under way with a local reporter who wants to film me out under the stars for a feature on me and my work.  We have had to cancel and reschedule the filming a couple of times due to extreme fire danger periods, but now that things have cooled down here in Australia that project will hopefully happen soon.

:iconirphotogirl: the founder of the new group :iconstellar-landscapers: recently asked if she could interview me for the group.  If you are into night sky scapes (and lets face it, if you follow my work, you probably are) then I can highly recommend checking out the group.  It is only small at the moment but I hope to see it grow exponentially soon.  You can read the interview here:

Stellar interviews: Greg aka CapturingTheNightIf you are found of stellar landscapes chances are that you already stumbled upon CapturingTheNight's photographs when browsing Deviant Art. It is also more than likely that one or several of his shots striked you at first sight!
Greg Gibbs aka CapturingTheNight kindly took the time to answer to my questions and gave precious tips and advices (like safety!and not only technique!) for beginners who want to shoot the wonders all above us.
I truly enjoyed this interview and hope you will as well!

- When was your first encounter with the stars at night? Do you remember how old you were the first time you looked above and thought "Wow"?
The first time I can remember being captivated by the night sky was at the age of seven when I was taken to the outskirts of my home town to view Halleys Comet. As an aside, a goal of mine is to live long enough to witness it twice.
- How do you feel when you look at the universe?
In a word- Small. Space is enormous and the dist

Finally, whilst I have you.  The Light Inspired Group :iconlightinspired: through its sister group :iconphoto-contest: is currently holding another Nature Photo Contest.  I will once again be on the judging panel and there are some amazing software packages up for grabs as prizes.  You have to be in it to win it.
Details here:
Photo Contest 2014 Now Open For Entries
The Nature Photo Contest 2014 now open for Entries!!!
Please > ENTER < your photographs to any of the contests four categories – “Sky, Weather and Night Photography”, “Landscapes", "Seascapes and Waterscapes”, and “Macro Photography” to win great prizes from our Sponsors.
Nature provides us with a never-ending supply of inspiration for photography. Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so too is a flair for the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment when an interesting or unusual lighting opportunity presents itself. Light creates shadow and shadow in return, enhances the appearance of a subject. The interaction of the two is fascinating. Light can make a subject feisty or dull while shadows can make it mysterious or terrifying. The position a
