In this bundle I included two different topics, simply because I think, seperately, neither of them is a complete tutorial.
The first one is about a nightscape in which the foreground was shot as timeblending. The Milky Way was shot at night and the foreground just 1 hour later during the Blue Hour.
The other one is all about stacking (shots with shifted focal points to have the image sharp front to back) under not entirely perfect conditions. It was far too windy, so it was not quite easy.

- On Location 00:20:00
- Editing 01:26:30
During the White Screen part I will first explain the background of nightscapes and everything you need to know about them. I talk about different techniques, how to calculate exposure times and why a nightscape should be shot as bright as possible. (ETTR)
During the On-Location part I first explain what to look out for when scouting in the dark. Then I explain how I shoot the picture. In the editing part I use Lightroom, Photoshop and plugins from the DXO Nick Collection to merge and edit the image.

During the On-Location part I explain what’s crucial when you have a close-up foreground. In addition I explain the problems that occur when shooting a Stacking in very strong winds.
