At the beautifully isolated location of Mono Lake, J.P. gives us suggestions on ideal shooting locations to capture the ‘Milky Way’. We also take a look at how to plan for shooting and what equipment we need, specifically a wide-angle lens that can stop down to f/2.8, and a good shutter release remote.
In the video, JP shoots 20 second exposures at an ISO of 2,000, with a 5-second rest between exposures, for around 4 hours.
To focus he changes his shooting mode to video and manually focuses at a x10 zoom, rather than shifting to infinity. He also uses a Daylight white balance.
