How do you shoot in the subway using only existing light? Use a faster film?
that's one way to help out
Tripod would also help immensely.
Faster film, tripod, open the lens all the way up, underexpose then push the film when processing, etc.
9mm, or a .22 right against the person.
Ohh fuck sorry, wrong thread.
Pull the fire alarm. Those strobes will definitely add a little light.
Seriously, faster film, larger aperture settings, slower shutter, flash (but you might get detained by homeland security, creating a terrorist plot to blind subway drivers)
Use ISO 800 instead of ISO 100. Then open the aperture up some, and slow down your shutter.
when using a large aperture, will a longer shutter decrease the bookeh or make it more blurry?
Bokeh has nothing to do with shutter speed.
After reading the thread title I was expecting to see a dead body in the subway or something..
sorry, i meant sharp
Well, long exposures shots should be on a tripod.
Unless you are asking about how much stuff will be in focus with a large aperature lens. Dof= not so much.
Use a wide angle and a flash.
Actually fuck use whatever you want, just bounce your 580ex.
lol. i was really out of it last night, thats what i was trying to say, with a large apeture, would a longer shutter increase what would be in focus?
a longer shutter speed (used with your camera on a tripod) would allow you to use a smaller aperature (which increases depth of field) however anything that moves would be blurry due to the longer shutter speed. For most situations in dim light, faster film is the answer even if you're shooting with a flash. Faster film allows you to still capture some of the overall background while using a flash to light the foreground. The trick is to use a diffusion over the flash to soften the light and cut down on it's intensity.
