Moon Walk

http://www.sfgmedia.com/uwol/moonwalk/moonwalk.html

A short video. Needed to challenge my equipment and my compositing abilities, so what better way than to shoot at night, or day for night. Some thing I learned along the way.

Expose for the whites, let the blacks fall where they may you are going to have to crush them anyway to get rid of the noise.

Make sure your lens is absolutely clean and free of dust. Any tiny dust spec will glow red, or blue, or yellow, well you get the idea, regardless of focal length or distance. I know, I know shoot wide open and at the farthest focal length and anything really close will not be seen, wrong.

There is really alot of contrast at night.

Forget trying to white balance, your camera does not go that high.

Let me know what you all think.

Jim
