Milky Way Photo Editing – Night Photography tutorial


In this Photo editing tutorial I will show you how I edited a night shot of the Milky Way in Photoshop and Lightroom.

I will give you the RAW images straight from the camera so you can work with them and make your own edits.
For milky way photography and star photography in general I use the following settings on my camera:

– ISO: 800 or higher
– Aperture: as opened as possible f2.8 or wider
– Exposure time: 30 seconds ore more if I want to make star trails

If you want to take night time-lapse photography you need a remote trigger. Check out my setup and settings.

High end camera handle noise a lot better when using high ISO settings so the ISO depends on the camera that you have and also your own preferences.
Increasing the exposure more than 30 seconds will create movement on the stars which is not desirable so if you want a brighter foto increase the ISO or widen the aperture if you can.

The first thing you need is a good photo to start with so make sure you take multiple shots with different settings. Don’t trust what you see on the camera LCD screen, take a look at the histogram.

Also try different angles and shoot both horizontal and vertical. You will be surprised to see how much different is to see the milky way on vertical than in horizontal.
