An update to last year's feature on shooting star trails. By combining a "bright frame" with the trail you can achieve a smoother and more pleasing look to your trails.
Rokinon 14mm DS T3.1 CineLens
A seriously affordable astro photography lens to help you chase stars, auroras and ultra wide landscapes.
When The Stars Come Out
Photographing the night sky is easier than you think, provided you can find the darkest of nights and stay away from city lights.
Platypod Extreme Gone Bush
It's not a tripod. It's less than that. But maybe it's more than that too. It's very easy to pack and could be very handy when you least expect it.
Star Trails at Sunset
This is the third evolution of my star trails guides, a small refinement but one I plan to use quite a lot in future. This feature adds onto the previous two guides which go deeper into the technique of capturing and stacking a star trail sequence.
Anything But Now
The problem with living the life of a photographer is that you so rarely get a chance to live in the now. Everything is past or present and very little in between.
