Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in San Quintin, Baja Mexico. My wife and I drove from Orange County, CA to Cabo San Lucas and this was one of our stops.
Time
I think it was around 11pm.
Lighting
There was some light from a bar in the distance that lit the front of the boat but I had light painted the boat with a flash light. Most photographers say to get any detail in the milky way you need to be 2400 ISO or higher but this photo was taken at 800 IS0. Always find out for yourself what works. I started at 3200 ISO and kept going down to try and reduce the noise and get more clarity in the boat. This is a single exposure.
Equipment
Nikon D3200 paired with a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 on a MePhoto tripod. Used a high powered LED flash light to light paint the boat and a standard plug in shutter release cable.
Inspiration
I saw the boat during the day and this was our trip back home from Cabo so we had already stopped here and I knew the milky way would be out at night. I got my composition thoughts during the day and went back at night to capture the boat with the milky way. I thought that the old beached fishing boat would be a very interesting foreground for the milky way. The rust, the list of the boat on the sandbar and feel just called out to me to capture it.
Editing
Yes a lot! All done in LightRoom. The light painting of the boat was hard to get even with the front of the boat slightly lit by the far away bar lights so the RAW photo it was very uneven. I had to do several overlapping brush strokes to even it out and add color adjustments in each brush stroke. I had cooled down the photo a lot to get the white balance right but that left the boat blueish which was exasperated by the LED. I brushed the entire sky once and dropped the exposure slightly and raised the clarity and saturation. The color of the milky way is not like that with the naked eye so I also brushed the milky way portion of the sky and added saturation and clarity and bumped up the exposure just slightly to make it pop. There was more slight adjustments but those were the major ones.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750 (photo was taken before I bought this camera) Nikon 14-24mm f2.8, Nikon 50mm prime f1.4, Sigma 120-400mm f5.6, Nikon D3200 and Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, 4 batteries, 4 Scandisk 32GB 95 MB/s cards, Fotodiox Wonderpana filter system, assorted ND, Polarizer and GND filters, 2 flash lights, headlamp, cleaning kit, battery charger, candy and or granola bars, MePhoto tripod, just for fun steel wool, a egg beater on a chain and a 9 volt battery. All packed into a Lowpro backpack and a water prrof bag to cover my backpack in case of rain.
Feedback
Yes use the the 500 rule and round down when shooting stars. Because of the rotation of the earth if you have too long an exposure at a certain focal length you will get noticeable star trailing. That is ok if that is what you want but if you want the appearance of pinpoint stars then divide the focal length by 500 and that will give you the maximum seconds of exposure time before noticeable star trailing. When I say noticeable I mean in the photo at different size prints. If you plan on printing huge like 60+ inches then us the 400 rule to be safe. So 11mm divided by 400 = 36.3636 so 36 seconds would be the limit if you can stay below it you should be safe. There is always star trailing because our planet is always in motion but if you have to completely zoom in to notice it then it should print fine in larger formats. Shoot as high an ISO as possible to get composition so you aren't waiting 25-36 seconds each shot to just get the composition right. Learn what can be brought back in post processing and don't push those limits. Have fun! Thanks for stopping by-
