It’s that time of year again when the evenings are starting to feel a little warmer and the idea of sitting outside all night is a little more attractive than it was in the freezing cold dead of winter. So you know what that means? Milky Way photos. In this video, astrophotographer Alyn Wallace goes over seven tips to help us improve our Milky Way photography and get the absolute best shots that we can.
The first tip is the biggest and the one that catches the most people out and that’s to find the darkest skies you can. Much of the populated world is heavily polluted by light from surrounding towns and cities and you’ll need to get as far away from those as you possibly can if you want to have a chance of getting the best shots.
