Welcome to another DSLR filmmaking tutorial
We will be focusing on how to shoot video under low light conditions, especially at night.
Many people watched videos on low light video test taken with either a Nikon D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D7000, Canon 60D, Canon T2i,T3i, T4i and many more. Now we're getting to the point where every time someone will ask me a question on how to set up the Camera and why there's almost no noise in the video I'd create. Here are some rules to follow
RULE#1: NEVER GO HIGHER THAN ISO 1600 OR ALL THE IMAGES WILL GET NOISE.
RULE#2: KEEP YOUR SHUTTER SPEED BETWEEN 1/30'S AND 1/50'S
(IF YOU DO SHOOT WITH A HIGHER SHUTTER SPEED,
SOME LIGHT ARE GOING TO START FLICKERING)
RULE#3: THE APERTURE SHOULD BE BETWEEN F1.2 AND F5.6
RULE#4 CHANGE THE PICTURE STYLE OF YOUR CAMERA
BY TAKING THE CONTRAST COMPLETELY DOWN
OR YOUR IMAGES WILL BE DARKER THAN IT SHOULD BE.
If you always keep these roots in mind, you should get good results. But the most important pointers are if you are shooting somewhere where there is no lights,
you won't see anything and the video will be very noisy and unusable.
Now if you are not able to get any artificial lights with you but still want to shoot at night,
you must go to places where there are lots of lights on.
For this reason there are many types of different light sources you can use.
You have taxis, traffic lights,
lights coming from buildings and all around that area you choose.
Keep in mind that if you do shoot in an industry with one light,
you will also get a dark and noisy image.
Still confused and can't quite get the results as good as others?
Here is the answer
1) It's all about the lenses a person use when shooting.
A Len with an aperture of F5.6 is much darker
than a Len with an aperture of F2.8,
where you will get a better bokeh
with a Len of F2.8 at night isn't going to be easy
but you how understand how to can get some good results.
