Astrophotography = to capture the night sky and its astronomical objects and celestial events.
Astrophotography is a highly specialised area of photography. It requires a lot of patience and skill, with many hours of standing in empty and incredibly dark spaces, with the camera lens facing up to the sky and the shutter open for long periods of time. The main draw for astrophotographers, however, is the highly-rewarding end result; incredible, complex and beautiful scenes of star trails and constellations, where objects in the sky that cannot be regularly seen by the naked eye come alive in the photograph.
At Picfair, we cannot deny that our photographers are a dedicated bunch, and this is truly reflective in the hundreds of absolutely stunning images of the night sky that are available to license in the collection: perfect for an out-of-this-world advertising campaign, or a book cover that exudes mystique.
We've curated a selection of 20 of our favourite pictures below, and we hope you enjoy gazing into the sky with this with this breathtaking collection of images.
