I was asked the other day about how important is it to time your shots with the different durations of sunset (or sunrise) so I thought I would use this post to demo that. β€’ If you head over to my feed or remember my post from two days ago you will see a very similar photo. That photo was taken 12 minutes after this photo but have the exact same editing settings and camera settings, showing just how dramatic a sky and color can change. β€’ So time out your shots for sunset and plan it out. I always like to get to my location at least a half hour before sunset and then shoot until night falls or the peak. Play around with it and enjoy mapping out locations, capturing, and experiencing those moments. β€’ Have an amazing Thursday everyone!

When your watching a meteor shower, lightning storm and the milky way with a new moon. 😍 I hope you guys were looking up this weekend to see the Perseids Meteor shower, what a show it was.

Some last minute storm chasing yesterday led to a crazy adventure in Papago. That lightning was one of the craziest displays I have been in in the valley. I watched about 20+ lightning strikes around me rattling the windows in my car and had the ride out the storm a bit before I captured this shot. Took only about 20 minutes to capture until the second wave started coming in and I had to run back to the car. Lol Have an amazing weekend everyone, hopefully the meteor shower will not be cloudy tonight! 😌🀞 β€’β€’β€’ πŸ—ΊπŸ“ Papago Park, Arizona #TylerBarks #DreamCreateStrive β€’ β€’ β€’ #phoenix #phx #arizona #az #arizonasky #arizona #arizonalife #azlife #explorearizona #weownthenight_az #fox10phoenix #lightning #storm #stormy #phxaz # #beon12 #abc15 #monsoon #weatherchannel #weather #photographer #photography #arizonaphotographer #arizonamonsoon #sonya6300 #sony #sonyimages

Who would love to visit Bryce Canyon or has been here before? Drop a comment below I would love to hear from you πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‡ β€’ I have been here twice and really enjoyed watching sunset on this cloudy day. It just kept going through different stages of color and then some rain with lightning until we headed out. Sometimes a little weather adds to the adventure. 😍 Have a wonderful weekend everyone 😌✌ β€’β€’β€’ πŸ—ΊπŸ“ Bryce Canyon, Utah #TylerBarks #DreamCreateStrive β€’ β€’ β€’ #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnationalpark sunset #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps100 #nationalparkservice #moab #moabutah #utah #utahphotographer #utahisrad #werutah #utahunique #visitutah #ut #utahdotcom #experienceutah #usinterior #goparks #nationalparkusa #lobomountain #igsouthwest #arizona #az

Not your typical shot at Horseshoe Bend but the beautiful steep cliffs look so dramatic. This shot is two of my photos combined from around a year apart at the same location. The bottom half of the photo was taken on an almost a full moon to illuminate the details in the rocks. Then the milky way I shot with no moon for a vivid milkyway! I was holding onto the milky way shot and almost posted it a few times but that waiting paid off lol.

A gorgeous day of exploring at Bryce Canyon yesterday. Between the sunset views, night hikes, misting rain, lightning and amazing clouds it was for sure a photographer's best scenario for some unique shots. More adventures today so make sure to check out my story for my little daily travels and life.

Last nights beautiful view of Horseshoe Bend! The moon was so bright while rising illuminating the trail and the bend. This is actually 9 shots pieced together to make a large panoramic which took me a few test shots to get it right. πŸ˜‰ You can see @bradleymbarks & @richierich8 shooting from a different angle and gave a great perspective of the size of this canyon. Enjoy your weekend everyone more epic photos will be coming out of this weekend as we are hitting Bryce Canyon & Zion National!

Topping 116Β° today in Arizona you come to realize that night hiking is a must. Good thing the city light views never get old. πŸ˜‰ I love this trail and hike, it is a must do for everyone who has not!

Another shot exploring the beautiful Lava Tubes from my trip up to Flagstaff. This is such an awesome adventure to escape the summer heat staying around 35Β° - 45Β° in the cave year round. Bring bright lights, your camera and tripod to get some amazing long exposure shots.

I have always wanted to get some day time long exposures in Havasupai and finally had my chance last year. This photo is actually two shots, one to get @alex_physiquen sharp while jumping off the falls and the second to get a 3 second long exposure of the falls for a super unique look!

Driving down the freeway last night I saw some huge bolts dropping down and shooting across the sky so of course I was late to my plans and I had to chase my first storm of the monsoon season. 45 minutes later I caught this shot and it is up there with one of my favorite lightning shots.

Enjoying this beautiful view underneath the Malibu stars! Took a long time to find a darker spot on the beach to get this long exposure and the sand crabs were crazy crawling over my feet but man was this an amazing memory!
