I took a weekend trip to Wilmington and met up with a photography friend, Michael Mercer (@coda_visual) and his wife Jen. Michael typically shoots astrophotography and showed me the ropes at Fort Fisher. It was a great night to shoot the Milky Way and I definitely put my Sony a7’s ISO to the test. I thought it would perform just a bit better at such high ISO but my shots ended up with a lot of grain. I decided to make these as desaturated as I could to help eliminate the noise. Overall it was a great trip, made friends and learned a ton!
