Translate what the eyes see and often the camera can't. Using stacking and combining different exposures, only to reproduce reality in all its art, without fictions and replacements.
For star-trails and milky-way shoots my process is the same: taking several shots and stacking them one over the other. In one case to obtain the moving stars, in the other to have less noise and more details. For both I always shoot the sky in the same location of the ground, planning to have a good composition between them.
It consist in combining different photos taken at different hours in the same place, allowing merging different light separated by several hours in one single picture. I use it in daytime landscape to fuse sunset and sunrise, or in nightscapes to combine a clear blue-hour foreground with the night sky of some hours later.
Sometimes I like to animate the scene making light-trails using a torch, or lighting effects using steel-wool fire. As for the other techniques a lot of planning and attempts are needed, and I usually take several shoots and combine them in post to extend and maximize the effect.
Often to have all what I see in my picture I have to make a panorama: usually a vertical one. Once I do so, I have to make for every section of the pano all the effects in this list, making several attempts to create photos that can join correctly. The result is a very big and complex final image.
I am a designer from Milan, so creativity is already part of my work. I like to travel and discover new places, but always with the aim of taking pictures. I dedicate great care to location-scouting with long mountain hikes in search of the perfect spot. I always shot the real night-sky of the subject, planning pictures where the milkyway is co-protagonist of the scene.
