Night Sky Beauty

Looking at the sky at night can be a truly mesmerizing and beautiful experience. The vast expanse of the starry sky can fill one with wonder and a sense of awe. The twinkling stars and the soft glow of the moon can create a peaceful and contemplative atmosphere, allowing one to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and connect with the natural world.

One of the most striking features of the night sky is the Milky Way, a galaxy that contains our own solar system. The Milky Way is visible on clear nights as a hazy band of light that stretches across the sky. The sight of the Milky Way can be breathtaking, and it serves as a reminder of the vastness and complexity of the universe.

Another feature of the night sky is the presence of constellations, groups of stars that form recognizable patterns. These constellations have been studied and admired for thousands of years, and many cultures have assigned meanings and stories to them. The study of constellations and the movements of the stars can also provide insight into the workings of the universe.

In addition to the stars, the night sky also offers the opportunity to observe other celestial bodies such as the planets, meteor showers, and even comets. These events can be spectacular to witness and can provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the universe we inhabit.

Looking at the sky at night can also be a great way to connect with nature and the environment. By getting away from the light pollution of cities and towns, one can experience the night sky in its full glory. This experience can be particularly rewarding for those who live in areas with little light pollution.

In summary, the beauty of looking at the sky at night is a truly captivating experience that can fill one with wonder, awe and appreciation of the natural world. The stars, constellations, and other celestial bodies offer a unique perspective on our place in the universe and a chance to connect with nature and the environment.

One of the oldest picture I took of Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife

This lagoon is part of the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife. I took this picture using my pre-owned SLR camera in 1990 or earlier as part of subject requirement in Photo Journalism. The park has improved through the years, you can check the history and updated photo through this link here.

Getting The Best Shot

Taking a picture of a person might seem like it would be easy to do, but the final results could leave your subject with red eyes or a bright light behind them that prevents you from seeing what the person looks like. Although being a people photographer can be challenging and even frightening at times, there are a few tips that you can follow to ensure that you capture the best images.

Check your camera to ensure that it’s in the proper mode when you take pictures. There are some that allow for more depth when you take pictures while others are better at capturing details from a closer viewpoint. If you’re taking pictures of one person, consider using a wider lens so that you can blur out the background. This will allow the focus to be on the person. When you’re taking pictures of a group of people, you want to use the focal plane so that one person doesn’t get left out because of a blurred image.

A longer lens is an option to consider that will make the people in your pictures look thinner while bringing out the best features of everyone. It can also blur the background so that the people are prominent instead of the buildings, trees, and other details. If you’re trying to capture part of the background with the people in the picture, then you want to use a wider angle. Keep in mind that the fine details of the people in the picture won’t be as prominent, which means that the results might not be ideal for portraits. This kind of photography is commonly used when taking pictures of weddings and other large events as you want to try to capture the full scene at times instead of only the people at the event.
