Lomocation: Out of This World


There isn’t much analogue photographs about space travel these days but looking at the sky with the naked eye is an activity as old as time. Here are some shots I managed to capture with long exposures and late nights of the galaxies – the most difficult to reach lomocation (for now).

Apollo 13 had about the same computing power as my light meter and they carried NASA issued Nikon’s but these are what I managed to pick up with my Canon A-1 with Fuji 200. Long exposures and a wide angle lens seem to yield the best success. There is a steep learning curve with astronomy photography so many more experiments and constellations to come.


In the first one you can see a satellite, its the white line that runs perpendicular to the stars near the center/right of the sky.
