Nighttime Friday

Tonight we wrap up Photo Week with Nighttime. Hubby needed to run to the store late tonight so we walked through the park on the way home. We had fun playing with the nighttime setting on the camera. It actually does a really good job of focusing on the nearest object and applying the flash appropriately.

BUT, we had more fun holding the flash down (off) in nighttime mode. This led to a very long shutter speed. We used various sturdy posts and benches to hold the camera steady during the long shutter speeds. With the shutter being open for so long, it captures all the light even if that light it moving. Causes some cool effects. Oh and, I have to give credit where credit is due. Hubby actually took all three of these pictures. I was there to coach him the whole time though 🙂

This is a shot I really wanted to catch. It’s a bit overexposed on the bottom. I think that was because there was an oncoming car that turned the corner towards the end of the shutter being open (it was literally open about 8 seconds). It’s really cold out tonight so we didn’t want to wait for another single car to come by to retake the shot.

This is the park near our house. You may recognize it from previous pictures. Again, we’re holding down the flash on this picture.

Same park again. Recognize that checkers table? Again, no flash for this picture. I love how the lights look in the picture. Click on it to see a bigger version of the pic.

    If we make more than one pink thing, can we enter more than once? Just curious… I have a few pink things on the horizon so figured it never hurts to ask. 🙂

    Glad you brought the pink challenge back!

    Julie – You can definitely enter as many pink items as you make. The more the merrier!

    Should we post ON Oct. 31st, before midnight…or do you mean that we can post any time this month as long as it’s before Oct. 31st?
