Star Trails | Norman Oklahoma Photographer

Sometimes I like to photograph something other than people, just to mix it up! I’ve been inspired by a friend’s astrophotography pictures on social media, but I needed a wide angle lens to produce the result I wanted and I don’t own one… although my portrait lens collection is constantly growing 🙂 When my husband’s co-worker offered to loan me his 28 mm I didn’t hesitate! This shot is the result of lots and lots of patience; I took about 100 exposures over an hour while sitting out in the cold playing Word Academy on Justin’s Android. I merged the images in Photoshop and viola! The “swirls” are caused by the earth’s rotation. So fun!Norman Oklahoma Astrophotography
