Behind The Lens

Location

I took this picture at Brackley Beach in Prince Edward Island, Canada. This was a boardwalk from the parking lot down to the beach

Time

This was around 10:00 pm in November

Lighting

This is a long exposure picture in the pitch black. I flashed the flashlight on my iPhone for a second during the exposure.

Equipment

Canon T5i Tokina 11-16mm Vanguard Tripod Flash on my iPhone

Inspiration

I was out hunting the northern lights. They ended up being a bust, so I went around the area looking for other photo opportunities. I came across this spot, and decided to get some star pictures.

Editing

A little bit of noise reduction, contrast, white balance, etc etc. All in lightroom, no photoshop

In my camera bag

Canon T5i Tokina 11-16mm Canon 50mm Canon 18-55mm Canon 55-250mm Yongnou 600 ex-rt flash Vanguard tripod

Feedback

Absolutely need a tripod. I should have exposed this a little shorter to prevent the stars from streaking a little bit. I didn't know that at the time. I did a 30 second exposure. From what I've read, it should be closer to 20 seconds. The faster the lens the better. This was a 2.8 lens. Faster lenses will allow you to have smaller ISO, which will help to prevent noise in the image.
