I love shooting star trails because I feel as though it creates a very powerful mood in my imagery. Obviously, having a strong foreground element is a big part of the puzzle when trying to create an immersive scene, and the Church of the Good Shepherd has become an extremely popular location for this type of photography. Being that it’s such an awesome looking old stone structure, it’s easy to see why so many stargazers and photographers love this spot so much.
For everyone who’s downloaded my Photographing The World: Cityscape, Astrophotography, and Advanced Post-processing video tutorial on Fstoppers, you’ll just know this photo as Lesson 18. 😉
