DMarx-2013-12-01-2892-Edit-A Million Stars Over The Grand Canyon.jpg
A million stars glitter over the walls of Parashant Wash on a clear November night at the bottom of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.<br />
<br />
Photography Tip: This image was shot at a ridiculously high ISO setting (16,000 ISO.) In the original raw file the noise is hideous. By blending eight similar frames together using the Median Stack Mode on a Smart Object Layer in Adobe Photoshop, plus a little work in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, the results are incredibly clean!<br />
<br />
I will be sharing a step-by-step video tutorial on this amazing pinpoint star noise reduction technique tomorrow over at http://www.msjphotography.com. Msjphotography.com subscribers can watch the complete tutorial in full 1080p HD and everyone else can watch the first six minutes for free.<br />
