Streaming Star Trails Photography

If  you haven’t already played about with your Bulb exposure setting, then you’re missing out and here is proof! Star Trails are simply captivating, they map the sky as the Earth rotates producing streams of light, providing a photo opportunity for the long exposure lovers. This technique is very easy to get a hang of and in the end the most difficult part is patience – sitting in the cold dark night!
