How To Create Iconic Nightscapes – Part 3 of a series by David Akoubian

SIRUI PRO David Akoubian shares his insights and techniques: More great images and a reminder


To make these image takes patience, dedication and clear skies. And being in the right place at the right time doesn’t hurt either!


But most importantly, you must keep this in mind: No night exposure can be achieved without a solid base under your camera. I only shoot with my Sirui N-3204X Carbon Fiber tripod and Sirui K-30X Ball Head. It gives me the confidence to shoot without a worry of camera drift or shake of any kind.

An added bonus is that on the next day, with very little effort, I can switch out the ball head for my Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head and start shooting birds with the same confidence of a steady base…but that is a discussion for another day…
