Astroscapes are landscape images that feature the night sky. These are what I have spent most of my time on in photography. Although I have more recently (As of 2015) been honing my skills and knowledge in deep sky imaging, I still love the challenge of finding and timing new landscapes to shoot against the night sky most of all. My older images are mostly shot with a static camera and may be a single image, or a stack of several images of the same frame with the sky processed separately to the landscape. More recently I have been using a tracking mount to increase exposure time for the sky and allow me to use a smaller aperture. The increase in quality as a result is too hard to pass up despite the extra patience it takes to set up equipment and blend the two exposures.
None of my images are ‘Photoshopped’ or composites in the sense that they are not combinations of landscapes and sky shot at different locations or on different nights. I make a rule for myself that I will never use images of the sky shot on different nights in combination. Therefore, all these images faithfully represent a time and place. The actual sky at the time of shooting at the landscape pictured.
