I'm going to be helping do a shoot for a charity which involves a bar crawl here in New Orleans.
I'm using my 5D3....as per another thread I've had going, I may be renting a 50L f/1.2 lens to round out what I have:
I have the 24-1-5L f/4 kit lens too. I was thinking of taking the first three if I don't get the 50L, which I might, if I did...I might drop the 85mm..maybe? I will need the 70-200 for earlier in the evening when shooting in daylight to balconies in Jackson Square...
Anyway, I'm going to try to get permission to shoot sample footage in the bars over the next week..but can someone give me some good numbers to try to shoot for so as to get good exposed footage, minimize noise?
I'm going for 24fps. Setting shutter speed to 50. I know ISO should be in multiples of 160..does that hold true in HIGH ISO's? What kind of ISO's am I looking for....at what fstops?
Again, this will be in various bars..some better lit than others, but none of them are going to be terribly bright, lots of neon signs, etc. I do want to get that ambiance a bit, but I want to also be able to see my people in these....
Again, I'm going to try to go scout and take notes, but looking for suggestions from others as to what settings worked for them in similar situations to give me a good starting point!!
Thanks in advance,
what hasn't been pointed out is that - while a fast lens is good to let light in - the thin DOF of f1.2 is probably not useful for most of your shots unless you want to focus on portraits where little is in focus.
