Mario Carvajal Fotógrafo

We chose the Friday, November 13, 2015, as the date to go see the milky way at the beach.
We invite you to enjoy so sublime moment.

How to take a photo of the milky way

It is much easier than you think.
But it is necessary to have the right equipment.
The first thing is to have a tripod.
The camera must be motionless, absolutely still while taking the photo.
Without a tripod, it would be impossible to take it.
Then, it is important to have an ultra lens wide angle.
For example, a lens of less than 20 mm.
And if you are a fisheye, fantastic also.
But if you have a 35 mm lens, you probably won’t get an interesting coverage for your photography.

The camera also has an effect.
It is preferable to having full format, full frame cameras, although it is not essential.

These cameras will probably a sensor with better performance, and you can use a high ISO.
Finally, a remote shutter release will be a very good idea, but if you don’t, you can put your camera timer.
If you have the proper equipment, the camera settings will be very simple: everything in manual, open as open as possible, e.g. f2.8 would be ideal.
A high ISO, e.g. 3200 is fine. Trip time, depends on the focal length: between higher angularity, longer can shoot.
You can be in the famous “the 500 rule”…
You split 500 between the focal length and that will be the maximum number of seconds that can shoot your photo.
In such a way that the stars don’t let trail or trail… I.e., if you are going to shoot with a 17 mm lens, the maximum time would be 29 seconds.
And ready!
Have fun taking photos of the Milky…

Can I see the milky way in Mexico? Really?

Can I see the milky way in Mexico?
Yes of course! And not only in Mexico… in any other country.
This is not an exclusive phenomenon of privileged countries.
You will only need these conditions:

  1. Stay away from the light pollution of cities
  2. Choose a day with new moon (or wait a moment when the Moon sets)
  3. Cloudless sky of clouds.
