I took my first Star Trails this evening, not too bad for my first attempt. There’s other photos of Fisherrow Harbour and Musselburgh at night in this set on Flickr.
In last weeks Amateur Photographer (14th March 2009) there was a article on DIY flash customisation. There was instructions on how to build a simple flash grid; however the really hard part was finding black straws. After a quick trip to Ikea, I had some straws which were only half black.
This is the test photo, there’s an version taken without the flash grid the jump.
