When I went to Algonquin Park earlier this summer, I tried my luck with astrophotography. While I’ve done numerous long exposure photography in the night before, I’ve never attempted to capture the beauty of the stars and skies.
As luck would have it, the weekend I went up happened to be the perfect weekend for shooting the skies, as a meteor shower was scheduled to pass by in the early morning. We all layed on the lounge chairs on the dock and gazed away as we saw numerous shooting stars left, right, and center. I did manage to capture some of these in my photos as well—in addition to capturing the International Space Station in one of the shots.
After a little bit of research on what to do, how to do it, and how to post-process, I’ve come up with the following images. I hope you like them! What do you think for a first try? Got any tips for future astrophotography sessions?
