Hi,

 

I was reading the AC magazine's January issue, the article about La La Land and I've seen this picture

 

IMG_0897.jpg

 

Then I recalled that the shot in the film was a night so I found it. (Don't ask me how :) )

 

Screen Shot 2017-03-10 at 08.32.19 copy.jpg

 

 

I'm sure this is the shot, I've checked the beginning of the scene as well, for the location.

 

So my question is, how can you achieve such an exposure with lights in the background, cars and on the trees, do you think there are any digital stuff going on?

If that's the shot in the still, there's digital stuff unless that was a rehearsal and they actually filmed it twilight for night.

It's also quite possible that the still shot was taken at a high ISO, and it was already twilight at the time.

deff think the still was taken at high iso, else you'd not see those little twinkle lights on the tree ;)

It looks around sunset/dusk, I was looking at the bark beside the lights in the tree, rather than the lights themselves.

After watching the whole shot again, I think this is a rehersal but it is at dusk (so the photo does have a high iso) and they've shot the actual scene in half an hour at most. Because further in the same shot we see a portion of the sky and we can kind of read it. Thanks for the thoughts guys.
