Star trails with Richard De Gouveia

  Staring up at the night sky we don’t realise how quickly the stars above us are moving, while we ponder the wonders of the universe. A different way to try and make a photo of the night sky is to emphasize this movement. By finding celestial south using the Southern Cross, one can aim the camera to make beautiful, spherical star trails. This takes patience and some time and a little understanding of your camera. It is also imperative that you have a tripod, and a cable release for the camera. The cable release will allow you to open the shutter indefinitely and the tripod will ensure that your camera stays stable through your exposure.

To him it was a reminder that the wonderful planet in which we live in is shared with these other charismatic creatures – hence project Totem was born. The project explores the fact that the line between humans and wildlife is not as clear-cut as we would like to believe in, and that in the animal kingdom, the only thing we can count on is unpredictability. To create these striking and haunting images, […]
