darb i really like your star shots im guessing you run a fairly high iso out of a decent camera for results like that.
i have recently been playing with high iso night pics hopeing next time camping i can get a few good shots
croozy some nice shoots there very impressive from every one so far
i dunno how far people go into photography but i am starting to use photo shop for a few more things other than just editing raw images
starting to play with 5 shot star trails, photo layering different aperture shots, and HDR.
and still thats just the easy stuff. you has some great tutorials on photoshop functions
Always keen to share. These are the settings I use.Definetly some awsome shots Scott
Any chance on sharing a few tips ????
Your star shots are amazing what is your secret
Very interested to know settings and how many shots where taken
I struggle a little with star shots
Always keen to share. These are the settings I use.
Nikon D800e + 14mm f/2.8 Rokinon lens
ISO 1600 - 3200 depending on moon light
Shutter Speed 20 sec (good for my sensor size, doesn't give star trails).
Most shots are a mix of approx 8-10 images taken in portrait orientation.
Ensure you know where infinity focus is nice and sharp, could pre-focus the lens in day time and use tape to stop it from moving. Or focus on a bright star.
WB is personal preference but if shooting in RAW it will give you alot of flexibility.
Some minor editing in LR and PS to bring out the milkyway and make it Pop.
Also pick your time for shooting, a new moon or either side of the new moon is best for milkyway shots. Startrails can be had in moonlight and gives contrast / texture to ground objects.
