Photographing Star Trails with a DSLR

During this short photography course you will also cover how to create a star trail photo like this. During the lesson you will be shown how to set up and shoot the photos you will need to create your star trail picture. After, during the post processing part, your teacher will explain how to stack the photos using special software (which is free to download). Your workshop handout will also contain a tutorial, so you won't forget what you were shown and can do it all yourself at home.


Choosing your foreground interest - Churches are always great for star trails, but make sure the church isn't directly lit. This will obscure your view of the stars. For best results, use a church that gets some ambient light from a nearby village. The images here were also near a road, so passing cars were lighting the church during my exposures.

Other locations can be small villages, or mountainous landscapes. Mountains are best shot when there is some moonlight.
