The starry sky is the eternal dream of mankind. Whenever people look up at the starry sky, they will have the idea to record it. In the current digital age, the development of technology has brought us unlimited convenience.
Because I have always liked shooting starry sky, I used Canon EOS 5D mark IV to shoot many times of starry sky journey. This Canon DSLR uses a full-frame CMOS sensor.
For Hoshino Photography, the digital age equipment gave us the shooting It brings a lot of convenience, especially the improvement of high sense, which makes the idea that is difficult to complete in the film age to be realized. Now let us use Canon’s EOS 5D mark IV to take you into the magical starry sky world.
Preparation for shooting the starry sky
1. Environmental preparation: urban light pollution is the enemy of shooting stars. We must stay away from the city and find a relatively dark place with a wide view around the city. It would be more suitable if you can get away from the hustle and bustle and go to remote areas to shoot.
2. Equipment preparation: a camera with excellent performance, try to choose a wide-angle and large aperture lens. A tripod and cable release are also essential.
3. Self-preparation: Shooting the starry sky often requires spending the whole night in the wild. In order to take the ideal photo, you need a little perseverance and tireless energy.
Shutter: 8s Aperture: F1.4 Sensitivity: ISO 3200
First, let’s try the EF 35mm f/1.4L Ⅱ USM. This lens is a F1.4 large aperture bright lens, which can get higher than the standard lens. Even at night when there is no light source, it can be exposed for a short time to get a clear picture. Because of its excellent aperture size, the star points can be clearly seen through the live view of EOS 5D mark IV, which is very convenient for users to focus on the starry sky through live view.
Because starlight is a weak light source, in general, autofocus cannot be used to focus. At this time, you need to adjust to manual focus mode, and then the focal length of the lens is fixed to infinity. Filmed. At the same time, you can also use live view, using bright star points in the sky to focus. In live view mode, zoom in the viewfinder screen to fine-tune the focus. When the volume of the star points in the viewfinder screen is the smallest, it represents Focus accurately, and then you can shoot according to the composition you want.
Multiple stars The parameters for superimposing a single starry sky on a photo are: Shutter: 20s Aperture: F2.8 Sensitivity: ISO 6400
Of course, sometimes the focus is not necessarily placed on the stars. For example, the star trail above is to focus When you go to the alien visitors on the Yadan landform in the front, the star point defocus appears larger and the star trails will be more obvious. However, the shortcomings of this setting shooting are also obvious, that is, the feeling of the single sheet will be worse.
Multiple stars Photo superimposed single starry sky parameters are: shutter: 30s aperture: F2.8 sensitivity: ISO 1600
In the film age, this kind of photo can be completed by long exposure. Although in the digital age, you can also shoot with long exposure, but it is limited to the thermal noise of the camera’s photosensitive element and battery power. Generally speaking, we deal with it through post-superimposition and synthesis. So a lot of pre-shooting materials are needed. After deciding where to shoot, we need to fix the camera position for one to several hours of uninterrupted continuous shooting, so as to ensure that the synthesized star trails have no breakpoints. Generally speaking, with a wide-angle shot, a good star trail can be synthesized in about an hour.
Shutter: 5 Minute 30 seconds aperture: F8 Sensitivity: ISO 1600
Medium telephoto can also be used to shoot star trails, and the composition under long angles also has a special flavor.
Shutter: 10s Aperture: F1.4 Sensitivity: ISO 3200
The Milky Way in summer generally runs through the entire sky, and the Milky Way in summer in the Northern Hemisphere is the brightest part of the Milky Way that can be seen in the Northern Hemisphere.
Shutter: 5s Aperture: F1.4 Sensitivity: ISO 800
The light in the small town in the distance is very bright. After the curve adjustment, there is no dead white overexposure. You can feel the tolerance of EOS 5D mark IV.
Shutter: 20s Aperture: F2.8 Sensitivity: ISO 6400
Under long-term exposure, a little bit of faint light source will be enlarged in the cumulative exposure, illuminating the foreground in the picture. At the same time, the Milky Way can be seen rising over the rocks of the Yadan landform in winter.
Shutter: 30s Aperture: F4 Sensitivity: ISO 1600
This starry sky tested the latitude of EOS 5D mark IV. The underexposed photos were directly adjusted to increase the exposure through post-stage adjustments, and the dead black landscape also appeared. You can see the texture of the water and the rocks in the water.
Shutter: 30s Aperture: F2.8 Sensitivity: ISO 1600
The moon slowly rises on the sea, and the sea is calm in the distance. The low altitude is dyed pale pink by moonlight. Because of the high image quality of EOS 5D mark IV, the distortion of the fisheye lens can be corrected and cropped, and it can also reach the level of 20 million pixels. The high pixels and high image quality give us the late stage of starry photography. Adjust more possibilities.
