Artist's Description

I have recently taken an interest in photography of the Milky Way and trying to combine it with different foreground interest.

Through all my research and flickr friends work it was trying to find a dark location within driving distance of Sydney that both Jay and I had been looking into for our first try of shooting the Milky Way.

I have also been looking into going for single frame captures rather than stacking them. I am sure that as I get better at these shots I will start to try using programs like deep sky stacker (Maybe??).

So during the week Jay e-mailed me and proposed that we try for a Milky Way shoot on Friday night. It involved leaving Sydney at 11.30pm at night and driving up to Forresters Beach on the Central Coast. So as we were driving out of Sydney there were a few clouds and we considered aborting the mission, but most likely due to us both being crazy we pushed on and were rewarded with an amazingly clear sky.

Whilst I still have so much to learn with this style of photography, I am so pumped to push the limits and come up with something different.

Shot Details:
Canon 5Dmk2
Canon 17-40 @ f/4.0
ISO: 4000 (Way to high but needed to compensate for using my 17-40mm)
30sec exposure

Post Production:
Edited in Photoshop with Nik Silver Efex Pro (adds structure to the milky way and stars)
Noise reduction software to reduce some of the noise in the stars as a result of using ISO 4000.
