That is for real, and I did not photoshop those 4 shooting stars in there, its very long exposure and you get to see those very faint ones then.

Wow... it's as if the heavens above decided to sprinkle the skies with glitter. And holy crap, check out all the shooting stars as well! :wow:

You've seemingly captured a wonderful collection of colours here. I'm hoping to take on photography, and you're especially a hell of an inspiration to learn from. What do the numbers precisely mean in your description, like what functions do they serve?

I'd love to know... hopefully one day I'll get to do stuff like this. Awesome work once again! =)

Thank you very much. :)

D800 is the Nikon D800 camera, high resolution camera, 14mm is as it say, I used a 14-24mm lens at 14mm ( super wide angle ), ISO is the light sensitivity set on the sensor, the higher that number is the more light the sensor takes in at the expence of more noise and less color rendition, and it is shot at 30 seconds exposure which means the sensor has been open for that amount of time to take in even more light.

Pleasure as always! =)

Yep, understood about the camera part, interesting take on the lens sizes (So is it the bigger the lenses, the more narrower the angle?)

So the ISO for your photograph is really high for light-sensitive photos, and you shot it at 30 seconds to compensate for the lack of colour rendition and the extra noise?

This is just stuff I'd love to start learning because I'm honestly getting inspired to take up photography as a hobby. Had a couple lessons from a family friend about the essentials. Hopefully I can learn even more as I go along. =)

Yeah you might say that, but its not always the case that a bigger lens will have more mm and longer range, but if you want the quality ones they will be bigger and heavier.

Iso is a bit tricky to explain properly in a few sentenced, the chip or sensor on the camera has something called iso range, low iso is much less light sensitive but the color and noise is pretty much abscent, at higher iso you sacrifice that for more light sensitive, so iso 200 will be 2 times as sensitive as 100 and take in twice the amount of light.
At 30 seconds with 1600 iso most contition will be very overexposed, but you do overexpose or let in many times as much light as normal when you are shooting the night sky and want a lot of stars to appear in the image.

Iso 100 normal
Iso 200 2x more light
iso 400 2 times more than iso 200
iso 800 2 times more than iso 400

Same with F stops ( thats how narrow or wide open the lens is, the wider the more light gets through.

F 2.8 wide open
F 4.0 2x more light gets in
F 5.6 2x more light gets in
F 8.0 2x more light gets in

You can also compare that to your eye, when you focus you close the eyelids a bit to get a sharper view of something, as F2.8 is wide open and let in more light the depth of field is also much smaller, and at F8 its narrower and will let in less light but the depth of field is much bigger.

using those factor to your advantage when taking pictures is what can separate good from great. :)

hope it helps.

Absolutely, makes a lot of sense.

So suppose for example you take a picture of a wonderful sunset or something, would a low ISO be more worthwhile? I'm guessing that because you want to capture the sun and the glorious clouds, but you don't want it to be overpowering either. For your night sky, you chose to have a large ISO figure which adds a lot of noise, and a very slow shutter speed, which brings out the quality of the picture more... Would you reckon the addition of noise helped bring out the stars more, or something else?

Dude, that comparison of eyes to describe the "aperture" of the camera is probably the best comparison I'm likely to hear. So as an example, F2.8 would probably be great for portrait-type photographs, to sharply capture the face and expressions of the subject, while say F8.0 would be great if you're taking pictures of the mountains from a far distance... Have I got that right or do I have a good idea at least? =p

Anyway, this small tutorial, for one of a better term, was indeed, really helpful. Only a couple weeks till I get a camera... chomping at the bit really. :excited:

Thanks so much! =)

Yes, you would want as low iso as you can to get less noise and better color rendition, you go higher on the iso when the light does not permit you to have the shutter speed you want, say you want to freeze a moving car/bird or something, and its not that bright, then you might have to go higher on the iso to get the high shutter speed you want.

Noise is a debated topic, as I see it you have to know how your camera can perform and play within those limits as best you can, the camera I use can easily handle high iso, its a bit of noise sure, but can always fix that in post-production.

I would use F2.8 or lower for most portraits to get that smooth blurred out background, and for long distance mountain shots as you say then yeah, id go highger, not F8 usualy, cause most lenses are at its sharpest about 2 stops above wide open, so unless its a 5.6 lens i would not go F8.

And you are of course welcome, and best of luck with your new camera. :)

Awesome tips there! And thankfully I've got Photoshop Elements which will come in real handy I believe.

Thanks very much for the well-wishes too... Who knows, we may even be taking pictures together, if fate calls it as such. ;p

you are certainly welcome.

but all the technical bits aside, do not forget your own artistic vision and eye, in the end it does not matter if you got every bit of technical knowledge there is, the picture still has to look good.

When I started out I shot every single picture in manual mode, thats how I learned my camera, and very fast. :)

Yes that is meteor fragments ( shooting stars ) hitting the earths atmosphere and burning up, very faint, but you can see them on such a long exposure shot.

Yes you can see an insane amount of stars here, if you are in the right place, altitude and away from ambient lights, this is quite a few but Ive seen more the last time I was at the same place.

Yeah, light pollution is just a bit.h to be honest, I am less than fond of it. :D
