β€œTrust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”
(E.E. Cummings)

 

My youngest sister dragged me out to the beach in my pajamas to photograph the night sky. I’m glad she did. Those that know me know that I am no night owl but rather a morning lark. As a result, I don’t have much experience photographing the stars or other nightly things πŸ˜‰ Its always good to try new things and push yourself technically with the camera. I’m not saying the image is going to win any awards, but its new for me πŸ™‚

 

How about some camera settings?

Shot with my Nikon D600 with a 50mm F1.8, no flash, ISO 3200, 1/2 second shutter speed with a +.07 step exposure. If I wasn’t feeling a little bit lazy at the moment, I would try to reduce the ISO noise in photoshop.
