Tutorial- In Field Techniques
Here is the video tutorial that started this madness.
It took soooo many nights of mistakes to get better at shooting stars.
Focus problems, exposure length problems, noise problems, tripod problems, foggy lens problems, missing media card problems, problems, problems, problems. But, on each trip, I got closer to getting a good shot. With each mistake I made, I knew not to make that mistake the next time.
So that’s what this video tutorial is mostly about. Giving you the knowledge and heads up to avoid all the first mistakes I got caught up doing. I don’t want you to waste all the gas and sleepless nights I did on mistakes that can be easily avoided. This isn’t an exhaustive how-to on shooting stars, but it’s got the basics on how to get started, and how to get moving in the direction of getting the star shots you are imagining.
After watching this, take a look at the rest of the video tutorials on how to process the shots you got.
