After several weeks of postponing and planning with Sydney photographer legend Matt Hudson, we set a date where the weather was supposedly going to be clear for optimal cosmic shooting conditions.
Upon popular belief astrophotography is not hard but the planning is difficult. For a month we were checking cloud and weather forecasts and we settled on that day. Only to find that the day is filled with rain or filled with cloud.
We got out to Linden one day and it was a super clear day with not a cloud in the sky. Come 8PM when we were all ready to shoot, storm clouds rolled in and started pelting down on our parade. You just can’t win against mother nature. Moral of the story, if you want to shoot astro, go immediately, check if it’s going to stay clear and if it’s a new moon. With a bit of luck, you’ll be taking photos of the stars in no time.
