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!


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
