Shooting Star Trails
Believe it or not, I’ve never attempted this kind of a shot before. Maybe because I thought it was too cliché; maybe because I grew up in Southern California where we never really had clear enough skies. But whatever the reason, the first time I tried it was last week, while on a family vacation in Kauai, Hawaii.
Back in the days of film, this kind of a shot was straightforward: Put your camera on a tripod, set the shutter speed to “B”, use a locking cable release and keep your shutter open for an hour or two. Not so with digital. Leaving your shutter open for so long will develop so much noise that people looking at it would cringe.
