Astrophotography is without doubt one of the hardest forms of landscape photography. Technically the low to none existent light levels really push both the camera and photographer to their limits. Additionally the isolation and remoteness of truly dark locations really can add a challenging physiological element to this form of photography too. Alone, in complete darkness, at unsociable hours of the day, the senses are sharpened to the point that every little noise and movement irrationally alerts you like never before. However overcoming these challenges and being rewarded with otherworldly images, is precisely why I LOVE IT! In this video I will share with you my Astrophotography settings and tips to help you conquer the challenges of night sky shooting.
