Le Dru by spatarozliev Le Dru by spatarozliev
It's a relatively calm night but it's quite cold. You need to keep on moving so you don't freeze but you cannot afford to because you will move the tripod and blur your shot... Five more left - it's good that the tent is close.

The peak is Le Dru overlooking Mer de Glace in the French Alps above Chamonix.

Hello there :D 
I'm a fan of your works, since I find them really inspiring and I'm totally fascinated by your technique.
I have a few technical questions, as a matter of fact, and I hope you don't mind me asking :) checking the EXIF data, I realized the aperture is always around 2.8, so how can you possibly get all these details?! :wow: Is it the lens you use or some adjustments in photoshop? And with the high ISO how much do you need to de-noise the image in order to obtain such a sharp result?

Sorry for overwhelming you with this stuff, but I'm really curious since I'd love to experiment myself with night photography. Thank you so so much for sharing these amazing works :heart:

Hello Valentina :)

The depth of field depends not only on the aperture but as well on how wide your lens is. I'm shooting with an 11mm lens(which on 7D is around 17.6mm because of the 1.6 crop factor) - which is quite wide. Since I'm focusing at +infinity to get sharp stars you really wouldn't notice much blurring. At 2.8 and 11mm you will see a big difference in the depth only if you focus on something that is really close. About the ISO - 3200 is usually as high as I go. Again 7D which I have a bit of experience with deals pretty well with noise. Still when I get my images they are pretty noisy. Still, if you do not do much editing usually it's doesn't take much to get rid of most of the noise. I've also turned off my noise reduction on my camera - I always shoot in RAW and prefer to do the de-noising in post. Another factor about the details and the noise is that usually I shoot 6 to 12 images for every night shot I make - they are all panoramas. Which means that I get 12k images in the end and when I shrink them so small most of the noise is lost and still they look they have a lot of detail.

Hope this helps :) If you've got any other questions please feel free to ask. I'm not a professional, though, so take my words with a pinch of salt.
Have a nice day :)
