Shooting Into The Approach Lights

Sun Jan 29, 2006 3:56 am

Hi again everyone,

I managed to spend a couple of hours down at EMA this afternoon and decided to experiment shooting down the line of the approach lights, as I've seen some stunning results on the site with the lights in.

I've taken shots with part of the approach lights in before and had no problems, but when shooting down a considerable length of them this aft, I was surprised to see how crap the results were. Are there any specific tips that I ought to bear in mind?

Here is one effort, that has just been resized from the original:



Obviously missing something....

There is not enough depth of field you will need to increase your f number to get the whole lot in focus.

The lights are overpowering your light meter, you may have to shoot manually or meter off where there is no lights.
