Hi! I'm Royce Bair. This is my NightScape portfolio. "NightScapes" are exposures of the night sky with a landscape feature. All are evening time exposures. Most are one-shot exposures, without major Photoshop manipulation, other than standard color and contrast corrections. All are taken with standard DSLR camera and lenses. For more how-to and behind the scenes information, visit my Into The Night Photography blog (where I also feature interviews with other night photographers). Some land features are enhanced with light painting, if it will help with recognition. Many of my NightScapes have been featured in books and national magazines, i.e. National Geographic. I've been giving lectures and workshops, internationally, on night photography for two decades. You may wish to watch the awe-inspiring NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another! Prints are available through the Website. For tips, tutorials, and upcoming workshops about my NightScape photography, subscribe to the Your Photo Vision newsletter. For image use licensing, email me at orida70 [AT] gmail [DOT] com. A fascinating collection of NightScapes from other photographers can be found within my Favorites. This portfolio represents one of my well-know specialties. For a broader spectrum of my work, here is a link to my regular Royce Bair portfolio on 500px.
