Camera: Canon 50D
Focal Length: 10mm
Exposure: 1308 sec (21.8 min)
Note: Luis Tamarit Nieto took this photo of campsite in Tudela, Navarra (Spain). You get the sensation that you are spinning when you look at this photo. When you combine the earth’s rotation with a long exposure, you get this illusion often referred to as a “time lapse”. Luis shot this at the perfect time of the night, right before dusk. By doing so, he captured the sunset and the night sky all in the same exposure. The small 10mm focal length gives a nice perspective to the campsite as well. Very well done!
Tip: The exposure setting of 1308 seconds (21.8 mins), allowed for the stars to have the streak-like appearance. When shooting time lapses, it’s important to use a tripod to avoid blurriness. To get the right exposure, you may have to adjust your ISO and Aperture settings to properly expose the photo.
