Chasing Milky Way

Written by CooKies™ on. Posted in Photography

Nice angle with milky way on top, but too bad not enough range17th of August, Friday. Tonight after having dinner with my boss from Penang, I decided to go Trillium Lake for another try of night photography. 🙂 Since my last visit, I always wanted to do more night photography, especially with milky way. So, without thinking twice, I packed my stuff and headed there straight away!

八月十七日,星期五。今晚和老板吃完晚餐后,就匆忙收拾好装备,启程前往延龄湖去了。自从上次拍星空的经验以后,就一直很想再尝试,尤其是拍银河系!所以,今天这么美好的天气,当然就没想那么多,直接去了。现在这里是夏天,所以就算是半夜十二点了,也还不会很冷。今晚的天空也非常清澈,漫天的星星,真的很美。我本来还以为只有我一个人会这么疯狂在这里拍摄,但是几分钟后就看到有一辆车驶进来,另一个男的也同样在这里拍摄夜空。看来夏天到了,拍夜空的人也特别多,哈哈。和他搭讪了过后才知道原来有很多地方可以拍摄夜空,而他也只是逗留了半个小时左右就去了另一个地方。看来下次我也应该要去其他地方试一试了。;)

Well, it’s summer now. So, the temperature wasn’t cold at all. Even when I reached there, it was already 12am midnight. 😛 The sky was so clear, another stary stary night here with Trillium Lake. 🙂 I was actually all alone when I reached there, but there was another guy came for stars shooting as well after a few minutes. Although he stayed only like 30minutes, and went to Timberline Lodge afterwards. I think next round I should go Timberline Lodge for a try. 🙂

Anyway, here are the shots that being processed. Milky way is there, but the time lapse is having some issue with color casts, and noise. >.< Not a good one, but at least I learnt something on light painting. 😉 这里就放上一些拍摄的成果吧。那银河系的微时拍摄,有很多的杂讯和颜色的变异,要真正拍到很完美的夜空还真的很不容易。现在也终于明白为何他们都有比较好的镜头了,果然工欲善其事,必先利其器。;) [gallery include="2438,2436" size="thumbnail" link="file" linkclass="lightbox" template="file-gallery" columns="5"]

One day, CooKies received an assignment to make the best peanut butter in the world. Hence, he decided to runaway to this place: Hillsboro, OREGON in US, for an estimated of 365days to complete his assignment. There are a lot of tough nuts over there, but he believes that: "Tough nuts always make the best peanut butter!" :)

    I don;t see any cloud in the picture. It should be perfect for capturing stars. How long you set for the camera to capture it?

      Lol, the clouds only came in around 2.30am. You can see that in the timelapse video. I used 25seconds, 3200ISO for the shots. Very noisy and not sharp at all. Kind of tempted to buy fish lens, but thinking of the commitments I have now… >.< still kit lens enough. haha
