Night photoworkshop by Alessandro Della Bella

Night photoworkshop by Alessandro Della Bella

Last week I was able to join the Night Photoworkshop led by Alessandro Della Bella. Alessandro is known from his work of Helvetia by Night, which is well known in Switzerland. We met at 9pm at the Prätschli Hotel in Arosa. There where about 10 people waiting, including Alessandro. He welcomed us and asked if someone would need some additional gear.

As I’ve never used it before, and the Nikon manual not really describing it’s used for dummies, I managed to only take 15min captures 🙁 I hope I figure out how…

How to create a Star-Trail image

How to create a Star-Trail image

Hi Guys, Let me explain the process on how to create such a star-trail: Weather? You need a dark night. Make sure that there is no Moon shinging into your lense, else it could look like this… Aim for a clear sky, some clouds could look fancy… try it out! Aim for a “dry” sky, which means that the moister in the air should be low, go to the mountains or shoot in winter… Location? Find a spot for your…
