Planning is fundamental in many types of photography, and it plays a key role when you want to photograph the Milky Way.
To the contrary of what many people think, our galaxy is visible throughout the year, but the most interesting area to shoot, the galactic center, is only visible for a few months depending on your location.
To help you plan your Milky Way images, every year I create some calendars where you can quickly see the best days to photograph the Milky Way in your location.
Milky Way photography is one of the most fascinating types of photography, but to shoot the most appealing part of our galaxy, the Milky Way center, you need to plan your shot since it’s not always visible.
The galactic center is only visible during a specific season (March to September in the Northern Hemisphere and February to October in the Southern Hemisphere), and also, just for a few hours during the night.
The Upper Antelope Canyon Photo Tours, one of the most popular and controversial Photo Tours in the United States, will be discontinued from 2020 and beyond, according to the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation organization.
Antelope Canyon is one of the most renowned slot canyons in the US southwest, famous for the light beams that are created in the canyon when the sun is high on the sky during the summer months. It became increasingly popular in recent years after being the location where the most expensive photograph ever sold (for 6.5 million) was taken, and especially with the rise in social media.
