In this Macphun original video, join adventurer and professional photographer Jack Fusco as he journeys to a beautiful star-trailed Joshua Tree in California. He’ll share pre-planning and preparations as well as gear tips like flashlights, headlamps, ideal cameras and light tripods before heading out. He’ll also discuss light pollution maps, picking that perfect location and the best times to shoot — like around the New Moon — to get the star trails you’re dreaming of. From weather forecasts to the importance of making sure you get those clear skies, Jack Fusco covers it all and helps you get prepared. And tops it all off with some advice on post-processing.
