The Milky Way and Astrophotography

Astrophotography and specifically photographing the Milky Way is not an easy pursuit. In my opinion however, there are very few photographs that have as much existential impact as  a landscape at night- set against the backdrop of the endless galaxies that make up the Milky Way. This is one of the biggest factors for me that makes the adventure such a rewarding experience. The extreme landscape scenario presents a whole different game, and pushes the equipment/gear to extremes also.

Learning to shoot within the limits of the equipment you have is a great exercise and opportunity and it’s a phenomenal tutorial to push one’s own limits beyond the comfort zone. After a few times of night shooting you’ll become more familiar with your equipment and learn the limits of what you can do with it. Then if one is inclined, they’ll be a better understanding of what direction to go if one wants to make upgrades.

I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of early summer, so that I may begin again my efforts to improve upon my attempts of shooting the Milky Way. There is an infinity of room for improvement. It’s a humbling pursuit,… in so many ways!

Light and Love, – Leslie
