Hard Core Primer On Night Sky Photography
Kamil Tamiola is an adventure photographer, and probably most known for his stunning night sky photography.
In the video below shot on location (as you'll probably hear) Kamil shares a primer on night sky photography.
In addition to the usual gear talk about cameras, lenses and tripods, Kamil shares some insights about planning for a spectacular shoot.
