Taking night photos is always fun, and produces exciting new photography. January’s cold nights can be especially dark with a bright star-lit sky. The only downside is–it’s cold! It was around 5ºF when I took these photos. Besides the fingers and camera getting cold, it was a lot of fun with desirable results.
If you’re wondering how I was able to capture the stars–I used a Canon 5D Mark II with the ISO set higher than normal for daylight shooting, and a Canon f1.4 lens. The 1.4 lens allows the camera to grab as much light as possible in as short of time as possible.
