Thread: Capturing Light Rays

    Default Capturing Light Rays

    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to capture light-rays and i tried underexposing by 1.0 to 2.0.

    Dont seems to able to capture what is seen in my eyes. Do i need to tune the wb and active D-Lighting in order to get a better result?

    I miss my chance, need to rewait 1 more day but hopefully i have enough information before i go try if not .. wait another one again.

    white balance + auto D lighting any changes? Coz i keep underexpose i can see faint results of more and more light.

    I wonder if the auto d lighting is fading off the light. But i cant test as the time not there and its raining .. sad

    did tuning the d-lighting help the image?

    Did u try manual mode to get complete control of the settings?

    Best if can post up the image then we know specifically how to solve your problem.

    i already view this thread before i post . Those sunrays are actually make vivid due to haze, what i really mean is capturing light breaking from the sky.

    Even though my eyes can see the huge rich amount of light, i keep adjusting my d90 to capture it, keep underexpose but dont seems to able to capture what i see.

    I wonder do i need to tweak my wb or active-d lighting to get a better result. I like to try before i ask question unless i have constraints. But hope anyone can provide me valuable advise as the weather and schedule it seems i can only try again next weekend ...
