Astrophotography | Los Angeles, Pasadena, Glendale Child Portrait Photographer Guest Post

Evan and I have found that the best way to meld our interests—astronomy and photography—is through astrophotography.  Today I’m presenting the first guest post by my resident astronomer, the other half of Bamboo Shoots Photography.  Evan annotates our recent photos of the beautiful night sky with some astronomy facts.  We love stargazing when we can, but […]

Kim - I’m a big star-gazer myself and these photos are stellar (haha). The combination of Truc’s talented photography and Evan’s scientific explanation is perfect! You should post more sets like this one.December 25, 2010 – 5:09 pm

Peggy - Great photos and star facts. I just watched a PBS special on fractal geometry and these photos seem to be great representations of its basic theory. Both the mountains and the tree seem to be reflected in the star patterns – who knew math could be so beautiful!December 15, 2010 – 4:14 pm

Marci - How beautiful!!! I tried to take photos of the night sky on a trip to Africa. The sky was so clear and the stars looked like one could reach up and touch them…they looked so close and vivid. Your photos remind me of those stars in that clear, awesome sky. My photos didn’t do it justice though. Your photos certainly DO capture all of it vividly! Beautiful!December 15, 2010 – 3:04 pm

Larry - Those are spectacular photos, and excellent narrative. Thanks for sharing.December 15, 2010 – 2:34 pm

Truc - Thanks, May and Chi! May, we spent about half an hour total, trying various camera settings and different parts of the sky. We were up in the mountains, so it was freezing cold! But totally worth it.December 15, 2010 – 1:22 pm

May - Wonderful photos, with very professional explanations. What a combination! How long did it take you to take these photos?December 15, 2010 – 10:04 am

Chi - Wow, these photos are sooo cool. I’ve definitely tried taking photos of stars only to get totally black shots and/or little white streaks everywhere. The first photo is my favorite!December 15, 2010 – 8:33 am
