Last Friday my friend Matthew and myself decided to do some photography around the Brisbane CBD toped off with a timelapse of Santos GLNG City of Lights. The Light show runs for 10 minutes or so three times a night (7pm, 8pm and 9pm). We originally decided to shoot at one location for the first show of the tonight, however after we shot the first timelapse which each frame was a little overexposed we decided to stay and try again with more appropriate setting. For those who are thinking of going and want to shoot some pictures here are the setting we used:
For the timelapse we shot on a Canon 60D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens. Each frame was exposed at 2.8f for 1/25th of a second at 800 ISO. A frame was taken every 2 seconds for the duration of the show. For stills we used a Canon 60D with a 18-135mm IS lens. Each frame was exposed at 5.0f for 1/10th of a second at 800 ISO.
I’ll post up photos of the day soon. Let me know if you have any questions.
