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.
I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
He calls himself Khalik Allah – a creator, a limitless, timeless, infinite being. He documents life as it comes and goes, as it hurts, as it glows inside the protagonists of his stories. His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak. Yet, he is capturing light in its purest form, reminding us that it lies in everyone’s eyes, within everyone’s self.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
