Post PLEASE HELP! - Stair trails
Hey here everyone,
I'm in need of your help! I'm currently studying photography at university and for my current project i'm photographing stair trails, which is all very exciting.
Turns out i'm very stuck on finding photographers to research, i'm trying to gather lots of photographers which take stair trails, i just can't find any.

PLEASE please help me as time is running out! If you can help me and give me names of photographers i'll love you forever!

Wow, thank you so much you guys, they're wonderful!

I'm very new to star trails, and long exposures in general. I did some test shots tonight, i'm a bit confused on how to get the focus right, seen as though it's dark i don't understand how to focus it. Can someone help?

Anyone tips i should know to get the best effects?

Thank you for everyone's help so far!

If there is no light source around place a LED light at around 30 odd metres away.
On your lens distance scale there will be a number just before infinity which will be the minimum distance you have to walk !
Now focus onto the LED and lock this in by switching the auto focus off.
This will prevent your camera searching for a focus point when you take your star shots.

If you have a ultra wide zoom lens you will have to repeat above if you change your focal length.
