I recently went on a night adventure to the Cairn Curran Reservoir in Central Victoria. I must be honest and admit that my reason for being there that night was to try and capture an aurora picture as there had been a good show the previous night. Unfortunately the aurora was a no show so I had to find something else to take whilst I was at this lovely location.
So what do you do when you're all dressed up with no-where to go ... you take a selfie of course. I was all by myself so I had no choice really ... well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Anyway, I've had a lot of questions about how I put these type of shots together so I figured I'd go back out there during the daytime and re-create the scene, demonstrating the equipment and methods used to create the final shot.
I'm always happy to chat if you have any questions or comments.
Below are the files I used to create the final image:
1 x Background image: Nikon D750 Sigma 35mm f1.4 @ f2.2 10 sec exposure iso2500 WB 3450K
2 x Foreground Images: Nikon D750 Sigma 35mm f1.4 @ f4 10 sec exposure iso1600 WB 5000K
My intent is to inspire you to look up and see the beauty of the night sky.
