Star pictures, they are so breathtaking, so mesmerizing that our showbiz celebrities like to be called stars.
Stars can be a symbol for peace, love, hope, splendor and many other beautiful emotions. Myths suggest that they are the home of angels. They say if you see a falling star, you can wish for anything and it will come true.

Scientists tell us that many of the stars we see are mightier than planet Earth and even the Sun. Their magnificence provoked me to create a photographic collection of them.

Technically speaking you cannot take photos of just the sky and stars, you need something else as well. In this post you’ll see how the professionals use this ultimate beauty in their pictures. You’ll also learn how to take such superb shots in the tips section.

Photography Tips

  • Wide Angle lens work great.
  • Manual Focus, “Infinity” Mode.
  • Clear sky and new moon is the best timing to capture stars.
  • Make sure your battery is fully charged and carry a few extra.
  • Focus just one bright star, you might not be able to focus all of them.
  • ISO should be somewhere between 100-200, otherwise the same noise problem.
  • Use Long Exposure (bulb) setting. A good exposure will require at least 30 seconds. If you want to capture light trails, use an hour of exposure (yes! an hour!!). You can have a look at the pic named “Skyways” in the post Long Exposure Photography Tutorial.
  • Try to discover the lowest air-traffic time so you don’t end up capturing airplanes.
