About this photography tip:
Shooting the night sky can be a difficult challenge for many new photographers. in this tutorial I start off discussing how to shoot the moon. Many times people do not understand that the moon is shot as if you were taking a photo of something in daylight. And for good reason, the moon is being shined on by the full power of the sun. I discuss the shutter speed rule to help you get a great photo. Next we talk about shooting the stars and this will require a long exposure. To help you get a sharper image
I explain the 500 Rule many of us use to get those photos of the stars without getting star trails. Putting these techniques to use can improve your night sky photography by leaps and bounds.
