Astrophotography makes visible what is invisible to the eye and reveals the beauty of the night sky. I capture the light traveling through the universe for millions of years until it hits my camera sensor, and here is how it looks.

The images you are about to see are a selection of some of my best night shots for the past two years. Some of the images are single exposures, and some of them are created using techniques like stacking or using a star tracker for longer exposures of the night sky to get more colors and details, then blend it with the foreground. I am using Sony A7III astro modified and a few of the best lenses for night photography, Sony 14mm f/1.8 GM, Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM, and Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8

#1 Vertigo

I have always been fascinated by the stars, I can even say that as a child I was in awe of the night sky. Over the past few years, I have dedicated much of my free time to capturing the magic of the night sky and the Milky Way in particular.

The peace and seclusion that the night affords me as I shoot makes me feel intoxicated by the beauty and mystery of the glowing stars and planets overhead, but also humbled and grateful. It turns out that many people have never seen the Milky Way with their own eyes, which is infinitely sad. Standing under the Milky Way Arch on a warm summer night, surrounded by the sounds of crickets and the scent of lavender, is an experience that is hard to describe or forget.

Thanks to my light-sensitive camera, I can capture details and colors invisible to the naked eye. I like to add my personal touch to what is captured on camera to give the shot a finished look and story.

#5 Buzludzha, Bulgaria

What continues to motivate me to shoot night photography is the element of surprise. Our eyes are too imperfect to catch the colors and shapes that hide in the darkness of night. When I press the button on the camera and wait for the exposure time I get excited like a little kid. Then comes the surprise and the WOW effect, to see on the camera display in colors and shapes what is invisible to our eyes. This feeling of uncovering the hidden treasures of the night sky and the world around us in the gentleness of the night is a feeling that keeps me alive and truly happy.
