Seeing the Milky Way through my Camera

I was able to take my first night photos last week while in British Colombia. I was so excited! I worked for about an hour at about 1 AM.  But I was able to get some good shoots. I have put all the shots that I did so you can see the good, the bad and the ugly.
I like learning from all my shots. I hope this helps anyone else that wants to learn too. A couple of notes about some conditions of taking these photos. I don’t have a remote yet for my bulb setting on my DSLR. So some of my shakiness may have come through. Unfortunately I was near some houses and a gravel company so its not the best for the lighting of the ground.

Another issue, when I reimaged my photos through Picasa it changed the colouring of the photos a little. All the pictures seem to have gotten lighter and a little orange.  I don’t know how to fix this. Hopefully I can figure out how to fix it for my website.

I have put all my main settings below each photo so you know the details as well.

I want to thank the blog Leanne Cole Photography . I was able to get the recipe of night photography from her blog.

The recipe is: ISO – Greater than 3200, F-stop as low as you can go, and exposure time 30 seconds.
