I'm Sara, -a photographer, blogger, quirky home-school senior, traveler, baker, and follower of Christ. I blog over at More Photos, Less Words, so come on by for a visit and snoop around! You'll learn about my life, photography, get a recipe or two, hear about travel adventures, and learn about the Savior who I love serving.
Hello! I'm Sara, a photographer who loved capturing nature, specifically the night sky. I'm going to share with you a few things about one of my favorite types of photography, star trail pictures.
What are star trail pictures? I define it as capturing the motion of the night sky. It can help put a new spin (ha!) on an old subject and is ton of fun! Besides, who doesn't love staying up late and listening to night sounds?
As with all techniques in photography, it's great to have fun and mess around with it. I've tried long & short shutter speeds, "light painting" my subject with a flashlight, and aiming my camera towards the north star to create a circle pattern, just to name a few. The experimentation is half the fun! So grab your flashlight and I'm sure in no time you'll be creating your own star trail images.
