Photography: Shooting under moonlight with the Sony A7S

Lady of Shalott - Ripples

As dusk approached, we began thinking about the possibilities of ISO 12,800 and above all the way up to 409,600. Nobody has been able to shoot handheld with fast shutter speeds in moonlight before the A7S existed.

A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
He rode between the barley-sheaves,
The sun came dazzling thro’ the leaves,
And flam’d upon the brazen greaves
Of bold Sir Lancelot.
A red-cross knight for ever kneel’d
To a lady in his shield,
That sparkled on the yellow field,
Beside remote Shalott.
