Welcome to my photo travel blog. I am a landscape and night photographer who conducts photography workshops in some of America’s most exotic landscapes.
I just completed a travel guide to the best landscape photography locations in Southern California, to be available in September 2015.
Yes, it is possible to get Perseid meteors in spite of the full moon. This one was at 4:19 am, right next to the North Star, Polaris. For a little over 1.5 hour I had my camera shooting 15 second exposures at f/5.6, ISO 2000. At roughly four shots per minute, I ended up with nearly 400 images. This was by far the brightest Perseid fireball I caught. I don't know if our clouds will break enough for me to shoot again tonight, but if they do, I may focus on a ground-based subject and see whether I can happen to pick up some meteors as well.
