In this issue we take a look at the process behind shooting this image. What gear was used and how to get the shot you want.
Jack Mayall is one of our Tutors here at Camera Workshops, be sure to check out his workshops at the bottom of this page.
Q) How did you plan this shoot?
A) I have various tools for tracking the weather and sky conditions and even the Milky Way orientation can be calculated in advance!
That said, you can read the forecasts as much as you want but it's never a sure thing, expect plenty of disappointment. :)
I think it's important to think up a shot in your head prior to shooting. I have a book I scribble down ideas in and combinations I would love to bring together in an image. Nothing beats just getting out there and putting yourself in the elements.
