Tekapo Moonlight II by CainPascoe Tekapo Moonlight II by CainPascoe
While the moon was yet to be hidden by clouds I stole its light and used it for some photos:D Got out my telephoto lens to bring those mountains a tad closer.

Using a Manfrotto 190B with 141RC head... try looking for decent 2nd hand stuff though, you'll save heaps $$$;)

i see :) i only got a canon 500D so for shots like these i'll guess i'll be needing a steady tripod. do you think a 500D body is stable enough for nature shots like this? i don't have the money to invest in a new lens so i have to stick with the 18-55 standard IS lens. any tips are most welcome mate :)

Yeah 500D is fine though you will get some heavier noise with the longer exposures compared to the higher end cameras. I suggest get some filters and learn how to take and stitch panoramas well, you'd be surprised at the results you'll get with your combo;)

that's what i've been doing for now :
do you think i'll get noise with long exposures in daylight too?
what iso setting do you use when shooting long exposures?

CainPascoe Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2010  Professional Photographer
you should be ok as long as you expose correctly... its only when you'll want to bring out shadows and the likes you will find the downfall of your sensor. Lowest ISO when i can to counter noise (so usually 100 maybe 200 in some cases)

I'm so jealous I didn't get anything remotely as good when I was there. I preferred lake pukaki, you have any shots from there?
Reply
:iconcainpascoe:
CainPascoe Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009  Professional Photographer
Worked the opposite for me, pukaki was sunny at the time and no clouds:( It sure has a more impressive backdrop! Probably only 2 pics worth keeping though, will get them up soon;)
