Milky Way; Night Sky

Photo taken by first-time contributor Alexandre Goulet, a Software Engineer from Ontario, Canada. He has found that photography is a great media through which he can escape the day to day trials of life. Photography was especially helpful when he was going through a difficult time after his mother passed away. Photography, in addition to therapy, was a great deal of help to him through that time.

About this photo: “I had found it challenging for a long time to take this specific picture, as I had continuously made excuses for why I couldn’t. They ranged from inadequate equipment, and un-cooperative weather conditions to just plain self doubt. On a weekend up north with friends, I joined one outside for fresh air as he had been admiring the stars on his own. When he asked me “Why don’t you take a picture of this?” for the first time, I had no excuses, and I overcame the hurdles I had created. Either his push was all I needed, maybe it was a bout of confidence he gave me, or maybe it was that right then and there I knew, the best pictures are the ones you take, not the ones you don’t. The rest is history.”

  1. Excellent picture! I’d be curious to know what camera and exposure you used. Night shots of stars are better set manually anyway…
