Last week it was my sisters and also mine birthday. But my sister turned 40 and she wanted to do a big party with the closest family members and friends. I thought of it as a excelent oportunity to be with my family and friends but also to take some portrait shots. I knew that there would be children playing, people having a good time, and I tried to capture that good mood of the day.

Here are some photos :

The company where I work - Openlimits - celebrated its 25 years of existence. They organized a lunch followed by a Kart competition.

As always, I was asked to make a photo report of the event.

One of the things I wanted to do was to train the panning technique. My brother in Law lent me a lens that I love (Canon 70-200 F4.0) and I used it for that.

I also wanted to get some "frozen" ones.

Here are some of the photos:

Good Milky Way photos are hard to acomplish but the results are amazing when the photos came out as planned. Last weekend I decided to make another try.
That are a few things that we need to do to prepare for a Milky Way shoot:

First we need to know the moon phase. For that I usually go to a site where I can see the moon calendar/phases.

You just need to choose the correct Hemisphere (Southern, Northen) depending on where you are in the world. The perfect phase is when there is a New Moon or near that.

Another important thing is to check the weather to see if the sky it's not going to be cloudy.

Use a tripod.

Check the light pollution. You can find out online where there is less pollution

Finally you can use software to help you locate the Milky Way. In my case I use Stellarium. You can use it on PC/MAC/... (Free) or on your phone/tablet (paid). With GPS on, you'll easily find the Milky Way.

My photos are far from perfect because I was shooting near a village and I had a lot of light pollution. I've used light painting technique to paint my foreground to make the photos a little more interesting. I've also took some photos without stars, only with light painting.
