During my Artist in Residence stay at Craters of the Moon National Monument I wanted to create a tutorial. I know photographing the Milky Way can be tricky, but I created a short video tutorial so you will have a great head start to understanding the right camera settings to try. In this tutorial, I used a Spencer's Camera & Photo modified Canon EOS R with an Irix 15mm lens from Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho.

 

Here is the video on Youtube: https://youtu.be/4_qIg-wr4ZQ

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!

 

Best regards,

 

Matt

Hopefully the tips and tricks can be of use! It's a fun time getting out under the stars with minimal gear, so I hope you have fun =) Reach out with any questions!
