Rene Levesque and Peel-Predawn

Rene Levesque and Peel-Predawn

Here’s some shots of Rene Levesque and Peel just before sunrise. These shots range between 10 and 15 seconds and where a lot of fun to shoot. As you can see the sunrise happens fairly quickly. In the 30-40 minutes it took too shoot the dozen images I shot the color temperature of the sky changed a lot. These were all shot on a tripod using mirror lock-up with a cable release.

madeleine - what camera do you use?

kev - Hi Madeleine,
I’m a canon shooter,these images were shot with a canon 5D MK2 with a 16-35mm lens.
My camera setting were shutter speed 30 seconds, aperture f/11, iso 50.
If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Catharina Kremer - I really like your photos! Especially the HDR and night ones. I personally have a Canon EOS 1000D and I would love to know how i can take the night pictures with my camera. Should I just use the same settings as you did or is it different?

kev - Hi Catharina,
The settings I used for these shots would be a good place to start. Basically what I did was set my iso as low as possible because long shutter speeds tend to heat up the sensor, which can add noise to the image. Set the shutter speed to between 20 and 30 seconds to get the light trails from the passing vehicles. Use the aperture to dial in the exposure. I also used a tripod and a remote release and I shoot in raw. I hope this helps, as always if you have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.
