Please find Technical articles discussing Night photography techniques & camera settings for capturing stars, Northern lights and landscapes. These articles look at any type of photography that is created at night. Night photos can be made in the Nature or in the city or sometimes with a blend of the natural and human made.
There is a lot going on in the night skies. Low cloud could be absorbing the city lights. A full sky of stars with no moon or light pollution can lead to spectacular photos. Powerful, modern cameras can allow us to see heavenly clusters such as the Milky Way with more clarity than the naked eye experience. Longer exposures can leave star trails which can give your pictures a creative twist.
If you have the patience for the long exposure times it take to expose a night landscape, you will uncover secrets in the dark. This is low light photography at it's most extreme and you better get the composition, focus and exposure right before pressing the shutter.
