The Longement Shanghai 上海龙之梦丽晶酒店拍摄暴风雨


If you look closely at the clouds, what do you see? A friend pointed out an image of a dragon breathing fire down onto the city. Another said it looked like a bird flying across the city. 如果你近距离观察云朵,你会看到什么?一位朋友指出图片中好像一条龙正在城市上空盘旋。另一位朋友说它象一只横飞过城市上空的鸟。

WHAT: Shanghai's skyline lit up by a colossal thunderstorm

WHERE: Longemont Hotel – 52nd floor Business Lounge

WHEN: August 2010

WHY: This thunderstorm was one of the biggest storms during the year causing power outages, hail, and various flooding throughout the city. Missing this moment to capture the grandeur of this storm was out of the question. 

HOW: This photograph was shot with only a tripod during a period of a couple of minutes. Scott grabbed the second camera that he had brought along with the tripod and hurried over quickly to take the shot before the storm passed. Usually, to capture an image like this, you need to use a fairly long shutter speed to capture the lightening striking down on to the city but for this instance, the storm came in during the day and despite the clouds and thunderstorm, the skies were still quite bright. There are difficulties taking long exposures during the day because of the added light, so Scott had to find the perfect balance not to overexpose the shot but capture the lightening as well. 

CAMERA: Canon 10D with 24-70mm lens

2010年在拍摄上海龙之梦丽晶酒店期间,有一场巨大的雷阵雨袭击了上海。照亮了城市的天际。幸运的是,Limelight Studio团队在酒店的52层正利用这个机会拍摄暴风雨

事件:一场巨大的暴风雨点亮了上海的夜空

拍摄地点:Longemont酒店——52层休息厅

拍摄时间:2010年8月

拍摄缘由:此次暴风雨是当年中最大的一场并且引起了电力中断,冰雹以及城中发大水。十分想念拍摄此次壮观暴风雨的时刻。

拍摄方法:这一张图片只是用了三脚架和延时摄影的方法。我们除了拿着三脚架还抓着另一只相机以迅雷不及掩耳之势拍摄,为了就是能赶在在暴风雨消失之前记录下这一时刻。通常,拍一张像这样的图片,你需要用慢门来拍摄天际中的闪电。因为在一天中拍摄长时间曝光的照片是有一点难度的,由于光线会一点点的增加,所以我们找到了一个很好的曝光平衡来拍摄闪电。

相机:佳能10D和24-70镜头
