muslin backdrops says:

The learning I got in this video is really worth it!

freezinkc says:

Hey James. I can answer your question for you. You would set your camera to bulb mode. It leaves your shutter open until you close it.

James Kaiser says:

how do you have such a long shutter speed?

hellraizer83 says:

You guys are amazing and your creation is so wonderful as well. have your ever published
book about Photography. I want one.

Josh Chang says:

How do you prevent the fogging up of lenses when doing extreme long exposures? And how long would you say is needed to get the spiraling star effect? The most I have done was 2 hours, and that’s when my camera fogged up, so I thought that I’d seek some advice.

LibanPhotography says:

Nice video. I love night photography. Over the years, I’m shooting more and more at night. I just noticed that over 90% of my photography now is night 🙂

sulaim14 says:

I have canon 5d m3 I tryed to record the timelaps but it turn dark when I hit record. how do you do that.??? plz help

evanvideo says:

Fantastic video. Subscribed! How are you able to let the stars burn in for a few hours without getting a ton of noise? I shot a 30 minute star trail at iso 100 and the noise destroyed my image. Do you recommend doing the multiple shots and merging technique over letting the single exposure go for a few hours? 

ChaosCheatSheet says:

Haha, while watching the video an idea popped up including my Petzl headlamp and what do you know? The guys in the video have Petzl headlamps. Wonderful, wonderful.

sulaim14 says:

what do you mean with turned off in between location. you mean you push the shutter buttom and light the areas you want to take a shot of. then turn off the light after while the shot is taken?? plz explain better. Am really Glad you answerd I wanna go and test out my canon 5D mark3 Cam.

Lance Keimig says:

W’e’re working on a couple of short tutorials, but you can always buy a copy of the book, which covers pretty much everything you need to know. Night Photography- Finding Your Way In The Dark by Lance Keimig. Available in 6 languages.

Lance Keimig says:

Since we are lighting multiple ares during each shot, the light is moved from one place to another while the shutter is open, but turned off in between locations.

sulaim14 says:

could you guys make some tutorials. I wud be great for those who cant get to you. Like those who live far from you guys.

sulaim14 says:

wow. I love This Guys. I want to know tho. do you move the light to the spot you wanna shoot before you take the shot or after you take the shot. plz help.

DomedProductions says:

Great Video You Earned A Sub 🙂

SeldomSeen Mike says:

Looks like a fun workshop.

gewglesux says:

anyone know if there is still an issue with using a tripod in NYC? i know it’s common sense but i thought i’d ask… BTW if you are bringing a Mono pod onto a plane and it does not fit into your bag – check it…. i got held up the other day coming back from Japan… thought i was going to miss my flight..

gewglesux says:

oh well done!!! this is very informative.. i knew there was a reason that i got back in photography! thank you very much!

dlmahtani7 says:
