Capturing and sharing your most beautiful starry nights has always been your dream? Then let us guide you and follow our technical advice!
If you're reading this article it's because you like the mountains, hiking and getting away for a while with your bag and your tent.
You’ve probably also found yourself under a starry sky several times with the Milky Way above your head and wanted to capture the moment but
you’ve never known how to capture this nocturnal atmosphere with your camera.
This article is for you as we reveal the techniques!
Night and star photography, also called “astrophotography”, consists of photographing an outdoor nocturnal scene to emphasise the starry sky.
This requires some technical concepts that are easy to grasp and apply after a few attempts.
Everything is ready, it’s time to take the photo. A few good practices to
remember. We recommend you add a 2 second timer to dispel any
camera vibrations when the shutter is pressed.
No good night photo was taken first time around. The key to success
is to adjust the setting depending on the results from the snapshot.
You have all the required knowledge at the tip of your fingers to take your night photos on your next mountain outing!
