Regarding only the night footage of the fair, yes. Too late.Not too sure about this video, I captured the footage in mid September, but have been struggling with the edit for a while now...
Knutsford Fair - perhaps first footage a little too early, and the later a bit overexposed...
Fireworks - run at 4x speed - perhaps I should edit to the best bits only and run at normal speed?
Should it be one video, or 2?
Night footage presents some of the highest dynamic range (contrasty) subject matter out there. The trick is to shoot at exactly the right time of day when there's still some leftover daylight, but it looks like night to the camera. It's a fine balance that only lasts a few minutes. Usually right after sunset.
With fireworks, you have no choice. They purposely wait until it's completely dark for those shows. The strategy there is to avoid overexposure at all costs - not easy when they are so bright. With digital photography you have to ensure that you NEVER overexpose. There's no recovery from clipping.
With underexposure you can usually do significant recovery.
Good on ya for even attempting a night flight. Something I haven't tried yet.
