Each time I photographed one of these images and reviewed it on my camera, I was amazed by how little I could actually see with my own eyes! Trying this new technique (for me) was a great way to open my mind to new perspectives in photography, while it also gave me the chance to give praise and glory to the maker of our beautifully intricate universe! I decided to experiment with astrophotography while I was in Olton, Texas, which is about a 45-minute radius from any city with significant light pollution. After getting a couple of shots that I was really pleased with, I’d have to say that I’m addicted!
For those of you who want the details, I shot these photos in a series using a shutter speed range of 20 – 30 seconds, f/2.8 and ISO ranging from 1000 to 1250.
