STEP 4

Com­pose with the land­scape and sky con­di­tions

Sky at Night Magazine - - PHOTOGRAPHING ORION -

To com­pose your nightscape you can take short, very high ISO test ex­po­sures to show you the bal­ance and po­si­tion­ing of fore­ground and sky, and any struc­tures or land­scape fea­tures in frame. Try to use the fore­ground – trees, build­ings, etc – to lead the viewer’s eye to­ward Orion. Some­times clouds can be used as a fram­ing de­vice too, and thin cloud can even ‘bloat’ and en­hance the colours of bright stars.
