|"The Light Within" - Milky Way over the Pinnacles in Australia. This is a 29 image panorama with zodiacal light and front lit by a crescent moon to cast shadows from the front. More information on APOD. This image was also the winner of the PNA 2015 Nightcape Category.~ © Michael Goh (Click on any image to enlarge)|
My other four favorites all have a central theme. The foregrounds are all illuminated by Michael, while he is standing near the middle of the image, holding a light in his outstretched arm. Many have tried to copy this unique style, but none have come close to pulling it off as well as Michael.
|"Distant lands". For landscape astrophotography, light pollution is often seen as a bane. However you can use it for effect. For this image Michael positioned light pollution glow behind him to enhance the scene. ~ © Michael Goh|

|Michael Goh and "AstroPhotoBear"|
Michael Goh or “Astrophotobear” is primarily a landscape / wide-field astrophotographer. Michael purchased his first DSLR in November 2010 and has been self taught with reading, websites, YouTube and a lot of experimentation. Through his journey he has also been shooting fauna, flora, liquid macros, off camera flash, macros, and some portraiture.
Michael keeps no photographic secrets. If it is reasonably within his capacity to help others, he will. He believes that blogging with his techniques and his experiments is one of the better ways of effectively of sharing his knowledge. More of Michael's images can be found on his website.
