Stars and Forests – Incredible Astrophotography by Mike Taylor

Photographer Mike Taylor is from central Maine, which is a perfect location for what he does: nature photography. Although he does studio work as well, his first and foremost interest is photographing nighttime landscapes with stars overhead. His portfolio of landscape astrophotography is awesomely beautiful. Each photo shows how colorful and bright the night sky can be when you’re out of the city and in a place like Maine.

    These are unbelievably gorgeous. I live in Maine and have been to many of those locations. Would love to know what kind of lens he is using and what his settings are. I’ve never seen a night sky likes those! Are the photos SOOC? Or edited with Photoshop/Lightroom?

      Elissa – Thank you!

      I use a Nikon D7000 & Tokina 11-16mm aspherical wide-angle lens for 95% of my night work. All my images are processed through LR4 & PS CS5. All the EXIF data for each of my images is available on my portfolio site and I usually include that info on my Facebook & Google+ posts.

      Cheers!
