About Author:

Hobbyist turned professional photographer who loves to share his knowledge about digital photography. Have been doing photography for more than 5 years and feel confident enough to share my experience now.
When I started taking pictures, my computer system would have literally 18-20 chrome tabs open all pointing to different photography tutorials. I used to spend a lot of time trying to figure out which content was easy to understand and straightforward enough for a beginner. This motivated me to start my own blog where I could talk about everything digital photography focusing on beginners. Starting my journey with poorly exposed shots and forgetting tripod on hikes, I still make mistakes such as forgetting to carry an extra battery pack. So yeah, don't be scared to make mistakes when learning something new.
Happy Photography:)

How to focus at infinity doing night photography?

In the previous post, we talked about taking pictures of the moon with a DSLR. The reason for this post can be contributed to the fact that focusing on the moon is still easier as compared to stars. Also, what to do when you are in the middle of nowhere trying to take pictures of star trails, night sky, milky way, etc. It is hard to see your camera controls on a night without moon and away from city lights. I recently went on a night photography excursion with a group of photographers to do astrophotography. It was pitch dark as there was no moon at all. Here are a few things that worked for most of us when it comes to focusing, pretty sure at least one of them would work for you.
1) Switch to manual mode. Go to live view and zoom in all the way using your camera functionality (not lens). Point it to the brightest star, focus by rotating the focus ring manually. Take a few test shots and see stars by zooming all the way into the photograph.
2) Use magic lantern. This software adds mu…

How to locate the milky way for night sky DSLR photography?

Our Earth is part of a huge sized galaxy, known as the Milky Way. Milky Way basically consists of our whole solar system and is made up of 100-400 billion stars. Until last year, I had no idea if we can see Milky Way with naked eyes. After a lot of failed late night drives and sleeping at the beach, I was finally able to get a grip on what I actually need to see Milky Way. In September 2016, I got my first Milky Way shot. It was an extremely emotional and priceless moment when I first saw the magnificent milky way with my own eyes. All the failed attempts or discomfort of not going to bed early seemed nothing in that moment. I would consider sharing this priceless memory with fellow photography folks as the inspiration behind this post. 
Moving on to the technical part, there is a minimal amount of gear required to take Milky Way shots using your dslr. Focusing at infinity and calculating the shutter speed to avoid star trails is purely technical, capturing Milky Way takes a little mor…
