|Star Trails over Mt Rainier at Reflection Lake, Mt Rainier National Park|
Yesterday was fun day catching action at Mt rainier from sunset to sunrise. I went to Rainier to catch meteor showers but didn’t expected nice wilde flowers. I endup taking much more photos than i expected. I’m still going through all of my Meteor showers photos and sorting them. In mean time, here is my Star trails with Mt Rainier. I’m glad i was able to finally shoot a nice star circle above Mt Rainer. The Above image is result of around 3 hours of continous shooting.
UPDATE: Forget to mention total number of image. It’s made of total of 58 images.
How i made this image:
Gears: Nikon D800, Nikon 16-35mm F4.
I set my Camera and Tripod for the composition i wanted and set the timing on my remote intervalometer to take picutres of 5 mins long exposure and 0 sec delays ( Camera on bulb mode).
Each image was shot with: 2.5/5 mins , ISO 800/400 and F4 exposure.
In terms of processing, Exported all RAW images to Full size JPEG using Lightroom. I used Star Trail application to do stacking for me. You should really try it if you are interested in Night photography. After this application produced the final stacked image, I opened it in Photoshop. Finally i blended it with foreground image of longer exposure: 6 min, ISO1600, F4. Exported this final image using my social plugin for Blogger and Facebook.
I hope you will like it. NK.
