Demystifying Camera Exposure & Focus

Learn what ISO 200, f5.6 and histogram mean, and why you should care. Understand what all those focus modes do. Keep detail in bright whites and saturated colors instead of blowing them out. Capture as much shadow detail as possible. Have blur only when wanted for artistic effect.

Successful Milky Way Photos

Efficiently shoot dramatic Milky Way images by following a straightforward set of steps to plan, capture and post-process in Lightroom or Photoshop. Learn how to be at the right place at the right time with the right gear. Do not waste your time standing around frustrated in the dark. The camera can see much more of the night sky than the human eye, but you will need editing to bring out the glory of this hidden universe.
