When my family and I vacationed in Kauai this past summer, we were fortunate to be there at a time with little moonlight and rather dark skies. While the skies in Kauai are frequently filled with clouds, they move through the sky at a fast pace and I took the opportunity on several nights to get out and shoot the stars. Even with wispy clouds, I was in love with what my camera captured.
It is always a little intimidating to head out in the dark night but I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t take advantage of the chance. The more I shoot at night the more I love it. Every time I shoot, I find myself learning something new & fine tuning my process. There is something magical about the night sky and I never cease to be amazed at what my camera can capture that the naked eye cannot see!
If you haven’t ventured out to shoot the night sky, I’d encourage you to try! It is quite an adrenaline rush. Just make sure to be safe if you go! And stay tuned for some tips on Astro Photography to come soon :)
