Hello everyone, it has been quite a while since I last updated my blog. On 1st July 2022, I hosted a milky way photography workshop organized by Sony Malaysia and YL Camera Shop in Kuala Kubu Bharu.
I arrived at the location around 8.45 pm and met with Sony Malaysia’s rep, Shaiful Baker, and See Chin Boon from YL Camera.
The workshop commenced at around 9.30 pm with a briefing from myself on the basics of shooting the milky way like what settings to use, how to focus at night time, and what equipment to use to get the best Milky Way photos.
During this time of the year, the core of the Milky Way can be seen above the horizon just a few hours after sunset. Unfortunately, when the workshop begins, it was a bit cloudy.
While waiting for the clouds to clear up, everyone sets up their camera in position and ensures that their settings are in order to get a sharp Milky Way photo. The photo above is a behind the scene shot taken with my GoPro Hero 8 Black.
Fortunately for us, after about an hour and twenty minutes at around 10.50 pm, the sky starts to clear up and the Milky Way can be seen unobstructedly. Below is my shot from the night.
Taken with Sony a7RIII + Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM.
And below is the location where this shot was taken:
Thanks for viewing.
