It’s summer, hopefully you’re in a place with darkness at night, and you can shoot the stars!
Ian Norman from lonelyspeck.com shows some of his beautiful night skyscapes, and also tells us how to shoot our own using the ETTR (Expose To The Right Method) and then process them to get nice images even in light-polluted environments.
Simply put, ETTR means over-exposing by 3 Stops, and then processing the image to bring the overexposed areas back into the midtones. Ian recommends shooting with a 30-second exposure, at f/2.8 with ISO 6400.
Ian explains that overexposure is the best way to reduce noise in the night sky.
