This is how I shot and edited the photos to create a star trail in Photoshop.
We will visit the location before the night shooting session in order to see the access and possible setup places.

I will also show you how to shoot time lapse photography, the camera settings and how I took the dark frame used to subtract the noise from the image once the star effect is created in Photoshop.
A few advices
Scout the location during daylight if possible.
Take a flashlight for light painting the foreground
Take head lamp for your safety, you will walk safer and you will be seen by others.
Check the terrain and wear proper shoes
In this video I’m showing how I edited the photo sequence and explain how I took the photos I used for my timelapse and what I did wrong.
