Eksderde – Milky Way Meteor Shower

I recently started to play with a technique called “Milky Way Meteor Shower”. This is where you photograph the Milky Way, and halfway through the photo you zoom the lens more in (from 18mm to 35 mm). These are some of my nicest attempts taken from Eksderde campsite.

The photos were photographed with the following settings

Exposure Time: 30 seconds
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 3200
Exposure Bias: 0stop
Lenses: 18mm
Camera: Canon 760D

Eksderde – Trees and Milky Way

I enjoy taking trees at night, and by including the Milky Way onto of it. This creates some dramatic visual effects. These photos were taken from the Eksderde Campsite just outside Pretoria. Unfortunately there were some outside light pollution, so I had to be very creative with my composition.

Milky Way – Eksderde Campsite

Overview

I’ve taken some breath-taking Milky Way photos from the Eksderde Campsite just outside of Pretoria. The first evening I only had a chance to quickly take a couple of photos with my Wife, while they were preparing for a Woman’s Church Camp. Luckily the first evening was not as cold. These photos were modified using GIMP, and the Levels were adjusted to my liking.
