In this episode of How to get the shot we look at how we go about lighting this old hay shed by utilizing a combination of continuous lighting and flash. Balancing these 2 light sources can be challenging but as we demonstrate it's simply a matter of following the process for capturing a normal milky way shot and simply adding the lights to the foreground one by one.
It's always a lot harder to incorporate people into nightscapes but I reckon it's worth the extra effort. We created some awesome memories and friendships during the weekend and that's what it's all about after all.
This shot was taken during one of our Nightscape Workshops so I've included a few more below from the same weekend.
My intent is to inspire you to look up and see the beauty of the night sky.
