Recently I spent a night with some friends photographing star trails in Yosemite National Park. I was experimenting with a technique of shooting multiple frames of a shorter time period at a low ISO to produce noise-free star trail images. If you would like to learn more about this technique, please read my new blog article A Night Under the Stars in Yosemite National Park.
