Idea: Use a Long Exposure at Night to Shoot a Starry Double Image



This starry double exposure-style photograph was made using a single long exposure. Photographer Ted Schiele was 190 seconds into a long exposure photo of the night sky when he heard a car coming down the road. He then pointed his camera down towards the car and exposed the camera for another 13 seconds as it approached.

Schiele says the 203-second exposure was shot with a Nikon D7100 at 18mm f/3.5 and ISO 320. You can see a larger version of it here.

“I didn’t really know what to expect when I did it but I’m pretty happy with the results I guess,” he tells PetaPixel. “If I were to redo it I would probably use a higher ISO because I had to jack up the exposure in Lightroom to bring the stars out which led to more noise than I would have liked. Something for next time.”
