Here’s a glimpse on how my profile looks like in WhoSay.com and my profile link at http://www.whosay.com/justinngphotography
This tutorial shows you how I photograph the Milky Way that's obscured by the extreme light pollution in Singapore, using photography equipments that you may already have and a workflow that probably works on most versions of Photoshop. I will be using a single exposure image that I took from Sentosa, Singapore on 06 March 2014 to show you how it can be achieved without purchasing additional plugins for Photoshop.
The image is a result of stacking several exposures taken, without moving the camera or changing the lens, over a period of approximately 35 minutes. It shows you how the night sky looked like at 9.10PM SGT before the spectacular laser show started from 9.30PM SGT onwards.
