It was my pleasure to host a UNF/OLLI continuing education class trip through the historic city of St Augustine last night. After being postponed due to bad weather, we were blessed to finally have perfect conditions for a hike around town, looking for fun scenes and bright lights.
We were not disappointed! When shooting at night, I like to remind my students that a study tripod is just the beginning. Depending on the scene and the length of exposure, you may also want to use a remote or self-timer to avoid any possible movement of the camera.
Modern cameras do much better with high ISO settings. I often to preach to not be afraid to go up there and even shoot hand-held! You never know what you might miss while waiting to set up the shot with a clunky tripod and related accessories.
We all had fun experimenting with different settings and techniques, followed by the compulsive debrief over beverages. Cheers!
