May the 4th be with you! I wanted to get something that I could tie in to Star Wars Day. After we watched the Laker game at my local pub (around 10:30pm), I made a spur of the moment decision to just head west on Blue Diamond Rd. I basically drove until I found a spot where I thought I could get a decent starry sky photo; before I knew it, I was at Red Rock!
I didn't want to spend too much time out there in the middle of the night, so I quickly shot a few 30-second exposures with absolute guesses on the focus. I was shooting at ISO 1600 at f/2.8, so although my car isn't in focus, I'm lucky I was even close. Not bad for a few minutes of work in the dark.
Thanks! Not bad for a quickie.ReplyDelete
sup, paolo its aj. your cousins friend from church. i just got a nikon d3000 for the family.. have any tips?ReplyDelete
Sup AJ. Nice! I'm not a Nikon guy, but the concepts are the same. That's a broad question that I can't answer in this little box. Just start shooting. Use the auto exposure options at first and concentrate on composition. Capture what catches your eye.ReplyDelete
Sweet... I've obviously been doing a lot of these with my car. I'm normally at ISO 800, F8 and leave it open a longer while, but fill the car in with light from a headlamp or flash.ReplyDelete
Yeah I was in a hurry. I'm not used to being alone on a deserted road in the dark... hearing strange animal noises LOL. I figured f/2.8 would be way too wide open, but I just wanted something to show for my drive out there.ReplyDelete
Totally! May the 4th...ReplyDelete
Yeah that's why I texted you Happy Star Wars Day!ReplyDelete
