So I knew to get lots of stars I needed to get out of the city so here’s a star trail shot taken yesterday at Elk Island National Park. It was nice because we were able to have a fire to keep warm while waiting for the camera. We roasted some hot dogs and marshmallows and listened to music to pass the time, almost two hours, that it took to get all the necessary shots. The first shot I took was of us sitting on the bench and I blended that in after creating the star trails with the rest of the photos using a great free program called StarStax by Markus Enzweiler.
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Exposure Time: 215x25s, Aperture: f/2.8, ISO: 100, Focal Length: 16mm
