I love the way how you llighted the foreground in combination with stars on the background.

Good work :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
Goblin Valley State Park near Hanksville Utah.
Time
About 2am
Lighting
I useda static LED light bar with a diffuser to softly light the hoodoos in the foreground.
Equipment
Nikon d810/Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens/Manfrotto Tripod
Inspiration
I love taking night images, and especially the Milky Way and the Aurora Borealis. There is nothing like the solitude of shooting the night sky in total darkness. It is truly awe-inspiring
Editing
I use Adobe Camera Raw in the beginning then import to Photoshop where I do final edits. I love NIK and Topaz plug-ins for processing
In my camera bag
Nikon d810/Samyang 14mm/Sigma 24-70/several different lights/a FotoDiox filter holder of daytime use/camelbak/and my tripod.. Cable shutter release
Feedback
Just GET OUT THERE! nothing will teach you like going out and doing it. lots of tutorials on the subject on youtube, Facebook, etc as well.... Try it and you will fall in love with it!
