Thierry Cohen and the stars that guide our future.
The stars, the lines in the sky… These are the tools astrologers use to predict good or bad fortune. Photographers who wish to make night sky captures know how difficult a task it turn out to be. First of all, you need to be in a location with little light pollution, meaning trying to take such photos in a city is almost impossible. Then, your camera needs to be stable as it will need a longer shutter speed to capture enough light coming from the stars. Now as you can see here, Thierry Cohen managed to show how stunning a city overlooked by a deep night sky would look like. It might be unrealistic but it leaves place for the imagination.
