    Unless you opened up the aperture or played with the EV setting, I'd say the same thing. Whatever, I'm liking #2 and #4. :thumb:

    Ahh, ok. Still getting used to everything on it >.<

    And #2 I tok like 30 shots of, and annoyingly there are WAY too many lights in the town centre.

    As for #4? I got bored waiting for the shutter to close, so I picked the camera up and started to walk off.

    Trying to go with a wonky shot. I think it's pretty trippy if you look at it long enough

    How long was the shutter open for? You probably need it open for a lot less time than you think. The others might have better advice, but I'd try a few test shots at 6 sec at ISO 400 and work from there. You may get more light trails from cars with a longer exposure, but people will tend to disappear completely.


    Anyhoo, a few from this evening.

    It was open for a long time, felt like an eternity, but I suppose it's like watching a kettle boil. I would say around 20-30 seconds.

    I'm going to have another play over the coming week. Not working so I can give it some proper time to practice with it.

    Really like #1 and #3 btw.

    I'm sure some of you will recognize this gentleman in the tiny shorts:

    And then a closer shot of arguably the most famous athlete in the world:

    He's actually pretty cool in person.

    Nice wedding photos. I think need some more creativity. :)

    Thanks, I'm fairly new to posing people so I'm all ears as far as suggestions.

    I am still very much a photography noob, but I am enjoying messing around with the camera a lot.
