I decided to take a ferry boat ride to capture the first day of fall in 2019. I took the ferry boat from Minnesott Beach to Cherry Branch.
I used my Nikon D7100 camera with Nikon 50mm 1:1.8 GS lens. The pictures were taken at 06:57.
I am trying to do some Astronomical Photography, so I spend the night in Oriental, NC for the dark sky. It’s a work in progress. The picture on left is the night sky. I had my shutter open for 26 seconds. I had my aperture set to f/4, and set my ISO to 2500. The picture on the right is the Milky Way. I had my shutter open for 42 seconds. I had my aperture set to f/5.6, and set my ISO to 1600.
From what I been reading, if you want star points, then the exposures must be less than ~ 15 seconds (to keep the stars from trailing), a large aperture setting to gather more stars, and a high ISO. I am going to try using ISO 1600, with exposure set to f/5.6, and shutter set of 12 seconds.
