Star Travel

Star Travel is the first instance of Nathan attempting time delay astrophotography. Perched out on an outcrop of rock, Nathan meticulously dialed in settings by flashlight and the faint glow of firelight.


Unsure of the exact settings, Nathan took many exposures and then stitched them together to create this final effect. All around subtle, he chose to develop only the faintest touch of star travel. Enough to know the purpose, but not so much as to dominate the image.


Another element that affected this image was the distant light of another campsite. This momentary spot of light didn't need to stay in the final print, but the sharp touch of blue centered around a yellow glow rippling off into the blue of night is a pleasing combination that Nathan decided to include in the final image.
