Roaring Stars at Flamber Head

    Newer Older

    This is a image I took last year when my son and I hiked a section of Newfoundlands East Coast Trail. Manual exposure, flash (inside tent) with homemade diffuser triggered with Alien Bee Cybersync's.

      Hi Brian,
      The technique I use to focus, with my Canon DSLR's, at night is ....

      Set you camera to manual focus on a tripod,
      and set to live view, I have my live view set to exposure simulation.
      Locate object in viewfinder and magnify by 10x and focus the camera manually.
      Reframe the shot if necessary and fire away.

      If you are doing night photography it would be advisable to use a shutter release cable and mirror lockup. If you can't use a cable on your camera use your self timer.

      Now with some lense,s wide and ultra wide, you may get away with focusing on infinity with stars and other distant objects!?

      Good Luck and if you got any questions fire away!

      Will give it a whirl,
      Although I dont have live view I may have another idea,
      Will let you know how I get on,

      Well done, Brian. Great placement of the tent in this photo and nice job on the sky, but I'm most envious of the shot overall. Great location. I've got one planned for this summer. If we ever get a warm day without rain, maybe I'll try it.

      Lovely star trails, The illumination of the tent makes it look homely. :-)

      Great shot Brian. My first experience with the East Coast Trail was last weekend. I plan to do more of the trails at my earliest opportunity. I would love to do a little camping along the trail as you have.
