Stars in a Full Moon

Newer Older

Went out to the hills to do some star shooting, and this one my favorite picture that i got

used the rule of 400 for this, which is 400/mm that your lens is at. Mine was at 18, so 400/18 is about 20. So my exposure was 20 seconds. This rule allows you to not get visible star trails in your pictures. The tutorial that i used for it is here... www.diyphotography.net/photographing-stars-at-night-video...
I also used my DIY shutter release for this

20sec | f/4 | ISO500
