Taking the baby to shoot the night scene
as a dad with a baby, shooting the night scene is definitely a test. On the one hand, the level of cooperation of the baby, on the other hand, the time is not waiting for people, how to take a good look in a limited time. night view.
I will share our experience in Kota Kinabalu. Every night we will go to Tanjung Aru Beach and the hotel beach to watch a night scene. The first baby usually digs sand on the beach. This time will be carefully coordinated with the filming. The second is to give the baby a little snack. She is only awkward, and the whole family can take photos well. There are beautiful sunset photos.
Shooting parameters: When shooting landscapes, I will use aperture priority to automatically calculate the exposure time. I usually use F11 to reflect the calm of the sea through long exposure. My machine is Sony A7R2, the lens is old frog 12 and Sony. 35. When I shoot my family, I will use 35, 1.4 aperture to open, big aperture, you must maximize the value.
Shooting time: Generally, I will take a few shots on the beach first, and wait for the tourists on the beach to start shooting. Generally, the 20 minutes after the sun falls, this time is the best, the light is the softest than the smallest, only in the future. Can shoot the silhouette.
Shooting essential: Because I want to take a family of three, I will bring a tripod. If there is a wireless shutter, it can be remotely controlled. Some cameras can be remotely controlled by APP.
Playing the first net in Kasbah, Tanjung Aru Beach, one of the most beautiful night scenes in the world, there is a cloud that cant be finished every day. However, Ive been in the past few days every day, there is no day to give I came to a shocking fire to burn the clouds, my heart.
How to shoot at night scenes, the first is to have a tripod, so in addition to shooting scenery, the family can also happily shoot the sunset silhouette, do not have to worry about the dissatisfaction of shooting, everything can be mastered.
The second point is that we must pay attention to the time. There are many, many tourists on the beach, from all over the world. These friends see the sun falling, oh... all gone. In fact, this moment is the time when the real scenery begins. The 20 minutes after the sun sets every day is the golden moment of taking pictures, which is 6:35-6:50 local time in February. This time is the real golden moment, the beach is no one, the whole beach is mine, just shoot.
The third point is the large aperture. What about the portrait, the aperture is just right, the bigger the aperture, the better, the various kinds of blurring, plus the various dark parts of Sonys micro-single I am not afraid of, and the direct pull up later. There are still details in the dark.
