  1. Hi Kenneth, I have a big interest of learning night photography including my favorite Milky way and Iam so fustrated of making it the way you did. Im using CC 2014 and on the part where you were painting it white, I doesnt paint white it looks like Im getting low opacity of black..I could not change the color to white. Please help.

  2. This is THE BEST editing tutorial I have seen so far. This video really helped me learn how to process my images of stars really effectively. I haven't found anything even close to as good as this video anywhere else.

  3. when I attempt that final stage of sharpening where you use the duplicate background layer. I keep end sharpening the foreground and not the milky way, can' seem to find the step I have missed. Any help?

  4. Thank you! I'm going to try that! Gotta find that software first, just tried on CS2 and the noise correction is quite lame… or may be I'm not doing it correctly…

  5. this was really helpfull – just a little thing: you may forgott to bring a unsharp mask to foreground – of course maybe you don't wanted to but its just the thing that you need a very little unsharp mask (like 25 / 2.5) to any raw – because its raw. just what i learned from some engeniers – maybe you have another answer ..

  6. Hi, I've been trying out star photography lately and got some great photos — which I'm amazed from! However, the quality of the photographs is poor. I'm using a Nikon D80 with 30s shutter speed, F3.8, Lens is 10mm and I've got the photograph on 'large' in the menus with 'RAW' as secondary output format (after jpg). ISO 1600. I use a standard tripod (nothing too flash) and I'm getting a lot of grain and minimal blur on the stars. The photograph does not appear to be HD. I'm editing in photoshop of course. How can I get better quality produce? 🙂 Many thanks, Theo. :)

  7. Hello, teacher Kenneth Brandon. I was through youtube's Automatic subtitles to learn slowly. But, today I find the Automatic subtitles button is suddenly disappeared, and I have not finished learning. So, I I really need your help to solve this problem. What can I do? Thanks, very much.

  8. Hi Kenneth, Great instructional video! Thanks, You mention what sounds like an "alpha" button at 6 minutes and 17 seconds into the video. Can you elaborate on what you were saying or did I misunderstand? Thanks. Doug
