You have chosen the right location, kept an eye on the weather, planned the perfect composition, and have experience shooting and stacking hundreds of night sky images for the result to be effective. However, at home, you may discover after it’s all done that something didn’t go according to plan. Luckily, you still have post-processing to work magic on these images. For me, these unexpected issues cost me almost two hours of post-processing.
Every photographer knows that feeling where they want to head out just like that and take some pictures. But often, there’s nothing to take pictures of. The model didn’t show up. Or the weather’s bad. Or it’s dark. Missed moments like this are the right moments for experiments. Today I’ll talk about one such experiment.
