Shoot­ing stars

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

Some­thing to think about when set­ting up your ex­po­sure is how spec­u­lar high­lights ap­pear. When shoot­ing with a nar­row aper­ture high­lights can take on a star-like shape. This is down to the way the light dif­fracts as it passes through your aper­ture. The ef­fect is more pro­nounced at shorter fo­cal lengths. Here shoot­ing at f/16 has re­sulted in the star­shaped ef­fect. At a wider aper­ture like f/4, the star would be less pro­nounced.
