It is not easy to organise a workshop to photograph the stars in the night sky, when living in one of the most densely light-polutet countries in the world. Luckily with a tip from a couple of astronomers and the help of a few apps, the Amsterdam Photo Club managed to find a spot outside Amsterdam in the fields of Kardijk that was perfect.
A general good starting point for shooting stars in the night sky is mounting your camera on a tripod and shooting with ISO 1600 at 20 seconds on a wide aperture of f/3.5. Have fun experimenting with different settings. Longer exposures will give higher quality results, but the stars become less fixed and start showing star trails.
