Figuring it was time to accessorize my camera, I ordered an inexpensive, portable tripod. Much to my joy, it arrived just in time for downtown’s light-up night. The skyline at night was the perfect opportunity to experiment with both my new tripod and the shutter priority setting, which I’ve been wanting to do.
My trusty photocaddy app recommended a shutter speed of 30 seconds – I didn’t really see a difference between a shutter speed of 30 & 10 though. Next time I’ll want to take more comparative shots and play with different shutter speeds, I think I was focused more on the tripod and trying to see different shots in the dark. I also would like to play with the focus – I’m kind of bummed that the sponsors on the buildings are not in focus. But not bad for my first round.
