Crowdsourcing Mornings: Notes From The Stars

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

“Notes from the Stars” is a high-quality, hardcover book, written by ten award-winning world-class night landscape photographers, each teaching us about what they do best.  Each subject is covered from a personal perspective by an expert and acclaimed nightscape photographer – an authority and inspiration to many in the topic they chose to write about. Here’s some of the topics:

  • Capturing the Northern Lights
  • Shooting the Milky Way under the moonlight
  • Night timelapse techniques
  • Photographing meteor showers
  • Composition and post-processing tips
  • Creating deepscapes
  • Exposure blends
  • National Parks Nightscapes
  • And more…

Their aim is to put in your hands the book every night photography enthusiast would love to read.

There’s many books and tutorials that teach nightscape photography techniques. However, no photographer can master every facet of nightscape photography, so readers are often left with useful but standard procedures and perhaps a taste of the author’s own take on all those techniques.  In Notes from the Stars you’ll go with Yuri Beletsky to capture airglow panoramas in Chile, accompany Wally Pacholka across US National Parks at night, watch Mark Gee doing his cool night timelapses, walk with Mikko Lagerstedt seeking one of a kind compositions, travel to Canada with Jack Fusco to shoot the Northern Lights, and much more!

As of December 8th, this project has raised $31,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project has 2 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $50, you will get one copy of the book.  For a pledge of $100, you will get two books.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
