January 24 Car Lights

Sunday challenge: Experiment with shutter speed today by making a photo with a long exposure.

This is something I've been wanting to try! But I've had trouble getting my camera to a correct setting. I finally asked my husband and he said to check the menu for a setting and sure enough that was the problem. So with that fixed I walked over a couple of blocks to our busiest street and tried it out. When I got home I jumped on my bike in the basement and listened to a Photography 101 podcast about nighttime photography, yep I did that a little backwards! I set my ISO way to high according to that show. So , next time I'll make that adjustment. I had fun playing around with Photoshop. I changed the exposure so you don't really see the houses or the dirty snow along the road. I had one person that turned the corner stop and ask what I was doing. I'm looking forward to trying some more long exposures and night time shots.

  1. Neat shot made even better by the Photoshop changes. By the way there's no one right way to learn. Better late than never.
