Tip of the week with Beck Photographic

editorial image

Try photographing the night sky.

Put your camera on a tripod or resting it on a beanbag-type cushion pointing towards the sky.

Try short exposures of 10 to 30 seconds at high iso speeds and wide open aperture to see things that are too dim for the human eye.

Experiment with long exposures of 30 minutes or more, small apertures and low iso speeds to see star trails caused by the rotation of the earth.

Results will depend on how much light polution there is in your area.

Try this out for yourself and send the results to Beck Photographic. We will print the best on our website.
