Matt Payne Photography Blog: An Appreciation Of Dark Skies In Landscape Photography

September 12, 2022  |  California

Dark skies are an important part of the natural world and are paramount in the success of every night photographer that exists. As such, it was a fabulous honor to discuss an appreciation of dark skies, night photography, and many other subjects with the guest of this week's episode of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week on the podcast I had the pleasure of speaking with a fellow night photographer hailing from the great State of California, Marsha Kirschbaum.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Why Marsha has chosen to specialize in night photography,
  • How Marsha got her start in photography,
  • How night photography sparks curiosity in the natural world,
  • Light pollution's impact on dark skies and nature,
  • Safety and night photography,
  • Equipment for night photography,
  • Digital art and night photography,
  • And a lot more!
