86 - 03.27.10 - Nighttime

Nighttime
I have found by doing this theme this week that taking night shots is very hard. Fighting with lots of noise, low light and trying to find something that is photo worth has been a struggle.  Just when I get things figured out it's time to move on to a new theme.

Anyway, I have learned that -
I need to work for on focusing.  That's really hard as night photography has to been done, IMHI, in manual. 
Got to get better and remember my trusty tripod.  Hate haling it around, don't like people wondering what I am up to and asking dumb questions like, "Are you taking pictures?'
I really need to get out more and not hibernate once the sun goes down.
f/4.8 @ .5 800ISO -2/3EV 48mm  no flash used
Taylors Crossing fountain downtown Idaho Falls, ID at night.  Wind was blowing about 35mph and that gives the photo the hazy look, water spray.
Next weeks theme - Green With Envy if anyone wants to play along.  I will be mixing packages and umbrellas.

WoW, What a stupendous Creation you have made, or is that just a common scene that you see every day around your place.

Oh you got an awesome shot there! I like the surreal feeling.

I've learned that it's so much easier to run around with the tripod when I've got a friend with me. Two crazy persons with tripods get less attention than just one I think. ;) Or maybe people don't know which of the two to talk to and then leave instead, haha.
