Jim Baugh has captured a new time lapsed Nightscape: “Neptune Supermoon” at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
From Jim, “This was a bit of a bear to Shadowpaint, but got her done. Really great to see all the folks out there and lots of photographers. Great night. Had been planning this shoot for a while, and scouted it twice to plot out how to film it. The crowd on the boardwalk while scouting was huge, no way to film it on a weekend. Fortunately the Supermoon landed on a Monday, less people (but plenty still) with clear skies, so it worked out.
Really enjoyed filming this. Gave me a chance to do some “People Watching” which is not something that usually happens on an Astro Shoot.
Photo Info Below: Cannon 200D/SL2 Lens Tokina 11-16 and Tameron 18-200Foreground: Neptune 75 RAW exposures, 11mm, f5 to f11, Iso 100, Shutter .5 to 2 seconds. Light painted with GVM RGB S Light plus a small spot light. Monfrotto Fluid Head Tripod.
All exposures and camera controlled with WIFI. Due to the constant changing light conditions, F Stop and Shutter were constantly changed with wifi while filming.
The Moonrise happened 20 minutes before actual sunset. Plus Neptune was “Lit” once it was dark enough, about 4 spots that I counted. To compensate, higher F stop and a shutter of .5 to 2 seconds allowed enough for light painting to “Stick” to the subject.ASTRO: Supermoon. Shot at 320mm.
