One of our favorite parts about summer here at Media Bakery is the warmer nights, letting us adventure out to play with some night photography. We don’t currently have any images up from the Perseid shower, best visible over this past weekend, but we thought it would be an appropriate time to freshen up with a little DIY on shooting the stars!
1. Grab your tripod
No matter how steady your hand, a tripod will be your best friend for night time photography. It allows you to keep the shutter open for a longer time without worrying about any movement that might happen.
2. Do some research
Find where in your local area, you can get away from street lights while still aiming to shoot in the direction you want to, for Perseid it meant finding the Perseus constellation and making sure any surrounding landscape lined up or framed that direction.
3. Find your friends
Shooting night time photography only gets better when you have great company with you, so find some friends, grab your tripod and head to the hills! Shoot for the stars 🙂
We’d love to see any work that you got!
