Night shots, the exposure varies from 6 to 25 seconds.


I'd wish this sub-forum was called "Photo of the night", but we got what we got. Attached are the results of the night trip to Sedona, AZ. Nikon D7000, as for the lens - sometimes Nikkor 35/1.8, but mostly Nikkor 18-300 and a good tripod. And, of course, no filter.

300 mm Telephoto night shots


Here is the hit. Attached are 3 shots of the same location made from the same point. The first one is to give you some impression about the distance, which is about 2 miles - 3 kilometers. The lens was set to 18 mm. The photo could be cleared, the noise removed, etc., but it was not the main point of showing it here. It was dark enough to take this shot anyway.

The next 2 shots are made during the sunset and after the sunset, both with 300 mm.

The Moon


The Moon is very bright comparing to the environment and the shots are pretty quick with low ISO. The quality usually depends on a number of factors where the air and the city lights are probably the most critical ones. The shots made in mountains are usually much better, more contrast with many details. They usually don't require any re-touch or a very limited re-touch.

F-stop: f/18
Exposure time: 1/80 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-100
Exposure bias: +0.7 step
Focal Length: 300 mm
Metering mode: spot, switched to manual after precise focusing.
35 mm focal length: 450

All these details are preserved in the photo and can be downloaded for learning purposes.

Dimi, I really liked the first photo. The blue tint of the foreground made it really feel like a cool, starry, night in Sedona. When you said "no filter", does that mean you removed the UV filter or a filter like a circular polarizer?

Thanks for posting the photos.

Ken,

Even a glass filter adds a blur, so the best way to avoid it is to remote the filter. I'm sure you remember the photos of Joe Bonamassa that I made across the entire building in the darkness. These photos are here on the forum as well. There was only a small fragment of the scene with light and Joe was sitting and playing in the middle. I removed the filter to take this shot as well because I knew its downside. I have read one article a long time ago about night shooting and the guy, who definitely knew the topic, wrote, that we should never use any filters when shoot the stars or anything else in the darkness. And he appeared to be absolutely right.
