Night and star photography provide me with lots of challenges and perseverance. The major obstacle is the chill and darkness. It doesn’t matter what time of the year, it is always cold and dark and many hours spent on my own. Sometimes I have to fight with swarm of mosquitos and sometimes fight against condensation on the lens. The initial hour of the shooting is often against fear of some wild animals or strange people coming to scare me. Once you passed this fear then it is the stiffness of legs from simply standing around tripods. It is always rushed at the end to try and just include one more shot…..however, even with these adversities, I still get excited with what I ended up within my camera.
