You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension. I decided to post this image of Neowise not because it’s a particularly good photo of the comet—there are a lot of spectacular comet photos circulating right now, and this isn’t one of ‘em. Instead, I’m posting it because I had so much fun figuring out how to make it work (I’d never tried astrophotography before). Lessons learned: Night 1: Just because the camera says it’s in focus and the shot looks in focus on the back of the camera doesn’t mean it’s in focus. Night 2: Autofocusing on Jupiter works. Shooting a 20-sec exposure at low ISO doesn’t. It’s impressive how much the earth rotates in 20 seconds. I did get some useable 13-sec exposures at higher ISO, but they were noisy. The session was cut short by the arrival of a fog bank. Night 3: ISO 1600, 4s at f3.5, and a 3-exposure stack to reduce noise. I stacked foreground and sky independently, and I had to align the sky shots manually. Bingo! The second image was made using the same approach but zoomed to 135 mm, ISO 3200, 3.2s at f5.6, and stacking 4 images. If you post a Neowise photo this week, it’d be great if you would describe your settings and approach. I’ll be trying again if the fog ever lifts, so all advice is appreciated.
