You’ve seen the timelapse video I posted earlier. The same stack of images, when shot at night, can be used to put together photographs of star trails. All photographed at Menchukha Valley in Arunachal Pradesh. Not too many frames because clouds come in pretty quickly and then no chance of getting any star trails. Adobe Photoshop can be used to put these together – I’ve used the Star Trails app. The latter produces results quicker but moire is exponentially multiplied if you haven’t processed images better in Lightroom, which I clearly hadn’t. So there’s moire in these even though I shot these on the Nikon D810. I did, however, process and re-process these to get better quality results but at some point I just decided that I was happy to release them with 80% “perfection”. I’m just very grateful that I got a chance to even attempt something like this on my first ever trip to Arunachal Pradesh! One day of blue sky is good enough!
