Astrophotography can be incredibly rewarding, albeit daunting if you're new to this particular way of creating with a camera. In this on-location tutorial, we are given some great pieces of advice for how to go about shooting both landscapes and portraits under a nighttime sky.
Night photography is almost its own art form, in the way that there are so many things that you will do differently both setting up and capturing shots, as well as how you handle the files in post-processing. This isn't a tutorial for what to do with your shots in post, but rather how to make the most of your locations when shooting at night.
As per her usual, Julia Trotti does a great job of explaining the equipment she is using and why she chose to use it. She uses a couple different lenses for this one, including a budget lens that will be comparable to what you might have if you are just getting started with your journey in photography. This is a great little tutorial for anyone looking to expand their capabilities out in the field and who has an interest in capturing scenes under a starry sky. Enjoy!
If night photography is a skill that you are particularly interested in developing, then you need to make sure to check out our tutorials with Elia Locardi: "Photographing the World 2," and "Photographing the World 4." Both of these Fstoppers original tutorials will go into much further depth concerning the more technical aspects of both setting up your shots and how to handle the files in post-processing.
