- ‘Nightscape and star trails’ refers to landscapes shot at night that include star trails. Star trails are photographed using a long exposure in a place that is dark enough to have a clear view of lots of stars. Star trail images have a “Van Gogh” like quality. Depending on where you point the camera, your star trails will have a different look to them. For the coveted spiral look, you must locate the north star. The star trails will be circular around the north star, so once you’ve determined its location, you can compose accordingly.
