Astrophotography is very famous. More and more people are taking pictures of the night sky because the equipment is more affordable and less expensive. More people can go. Astrophotography was one of the topics addressed by the young Alvarus López Moreta from Fontiver in the final presentation he gave to the author in the chamber of the Council of Arévalo. Light Painting was another of the questions that he pursues at night. “Light Painting is something new that attracts attention and no one expects that these effects and things can be created with light,” said this primary teacher and member of the Organization of Astronautics and Space in Salmantica (OSAE), from whom not many months ago. ago NASA published one of its photographs that it took of the act of observing the moon, which was done in the Plaza Mayor of Salmantica by OSAE.
He said of the night photographs that they are all those that are taken at night. But there are also those that take place in a dark room or when in caves. There are pictures that are taken in the dark.
Light painting with light effects, lamps and everything that can provide additional light. “Imagination is a photograph that no one is used to seeing; It draws attention and you can achieve cooler effects. What we have done in this talk is to provide some ideas so that people can get started with Lignt Pictura and learn about them. Light Painting has no purpose or many”, in the words of López Morata. “It has infinite possibilities. All that our imagination apprehends us. In the workshop I made patterns, a flower, a snail. We also see ourselves as going beyond the physical elements, extending our arm a lot… These are the things that can be done with the imagination, because in this case it has no limits. Everyone can do what they want and it is incredible to say, they can create wonderful things.
Astrophotography equipment has fallen somewhat in price, says López Moreta. “Before, I needed a telescope and a well-prepared camera. Now there are things that can be purchased at a reasonable price, about 300 euros, and you already have the basic equipment to be able to do astrophotography. All this has changed and people can now take those pictures at a much cheaper price. With these tools especially many photographs such as galaxies, nebulae. “Also some comets.” A lot can be done.” Even if you need a very large telephoto lens, you can already see things with devices called astrophotographs. “With these you can now start doing things that were unthinkable before, even though you need a very large telephoto lens. The world of photography in astronomy is also infinite. Many things can be done “.
Photography and the mention that NASA made in its publication, “something I did not expect. In the event that we did to observe the moon through OSAE, I took pictures and they were posted on different media and on different pages. NASA took this photo. Since our publication we did not expect and did not expect to be published. Of all the pictures published in this article, which were about ten or twelve pictures, only one was from our Spain.
