Snapping selfies that wow has become a worlwide trend in recent years, but the Australian photographer Michael Goh has taken this practice to an out of this world place. The self-taught astrophotographer traveled to the salt lakes in The Pinnacles at Nambung National Park, Australia, to take these stunning self-portraits among the stars.
Goh visits a variety of salt lakes where he sets up his camera to capture the Milky Way. The 45-year-old was able to capture himself in the panoramic photos using a handheld wireless remote. “The issue is around getting consistent lighting for a selfportrait across a panorama with artificial lighting (the light source held by myself – the exploring figure),” explained the photographer.
It takes Goh approximately 30 miniutes to capture each scene.
