In order to “hunt” for unique pictures of the galaxy, Mr. Nhan must prepare his “tools” very well. “You have to choose the right time and a clear view, not affected by electric light or moonlight, to capture the galaxy with the best clarity. Usually, you will shoot the foreground before it is not too dark, use a long exposure technique or some tips like scanning the flashlight, burning a little more fire, … to make the foreground brighter. After taking the foreground, I still set up a fixed tripod like that and wait for the time when the galaxy appears most clearly in the sky, then start shooting, ”Mr. Nhan shared.
