Stars swirl across the sky in this twenty minute exposure from Whitefish, Montana.
Photography Tip: Never stop experimenting! I shot a series of images like this one earlier this week. Those shots were good but not quite perfect. So I returned last night to the exact same spot to try it again. And the new results make me happy.
The big difference between the earlier photos and this one is in-camera long exposure noise reduction. I though that I could do the same thing that my camera does internally in post-processing. After a week of experimentation with different Photoshop techniques though I am convinced that my camera gives me better results.
But there is a catch! In-camera long exposure noise reduction doubles the amount of time that it takes to create a single image. And if the camera battery dies during that extended time period then I get nothing!
