Introduction to Night Sky Photography Cooma

This workshop steps you through the basic settings for photographing the stars and Milky way. Detailed notes are provided.

In the field I will teach you HOW TO:

  • focus to help ensure the sharpest and most pleasing shots of our night skies taking into account the Earth’s rotation and NPF rule
  • adjust your camera settings in manual mode for ISO, shutter speed and aperture taking into account reasonable exposure levels using the histogram
  • shoot panoramas (great for the Milky way)
  • shoot star trails
  • shoot timelapses
  • light paint foreground objects such as buildings, trees etc to create images with the stars in the background
  • manage white balance in your shots as well as in light painting
  • hoot multiple images of foreground and background shots to be stacked so to further reduce noise in your image
