Crazy camera settings at f64, 1120mm - Tube Stories 30

22 Oct 2017

*** Check out our new tubes on the shop: ***

This is a small part of a bigger project that's going to come in a few weeks. Kim and I have a lot of experience doing giant sunsets, but what about the moon? It turned out to be much easier than expected. During the shooting, I realized that I was able to step down the aperture to f64 by using the extenders. This gave me a very dirty low-quality image, but the fact that the moon and Kim were quite in focus was very mind-boggling.

Equipment: Canon 5d Mark IV (not the one that I baked), Canon 400mm f5.6, 2x extender II, 1.4x extender


About the Tube Stories
We're a dancer/photographer duo making our way using a tube, a feather, and a flashlight. Everything we do is lit by hand, one frame at a time. Light-painting for us is a lifestyle, and this is what we share with our audience. The purpose of the Tube Stories is to bring a brighter and more colorful night to whoever is going to cross our path. Our work has been presented on the BBC, CNN, MTV, VICE, TEDx and much more.
