After try some error, I slowly can control some of the movement of steel wool and the LED lights, I try to shoot it alone too but I prefer there are someone to help you press the button. I notice location is the key to make the photos interesting, will survey out some location when I got the time.
I always admire those who shoot milky way photos. I’m very curious that why they can get it so easily. I have tried for quite a while until this month I manage get my first milky way shot. Then the thing like shift totally to my side. There are few things we need to take notes.
1. You need to locate the milky way. In the month of April is almost like at the tail of Scorpio, I still not sure will it changes it location when in the end of the year, still need time for me to observe.
2. You need to avoid from the light pollution in the city, even sometime you are outside the city, the light pollution can be as strong as in the city. So you need to find a place with minimum light pollution.
3. Avoid the moon. The best time is to shoot during the New moon, but in the other days, milky way still can be visible as long as the moon already set.
The following photos took me a few sleepless nights to get them all together. Hope you like it
I started to find interest in light painting because of the recent outing at night. I’m addicted to night photography in the penang island, mainly is because the sky which full of stars and milkyway, secondly is easier for me to go out since most of my family members are already asleep. I do not think of rushing back and can take my sweet time to compose and observe. The most challenging part is sometime you need to do it alone in the middle of the night, and feel a bit scary and uncomfortable. Anyway these are the photos I shoot in the first 2 nights. I hope I will go into it more. Enjoy!!!
