Shot of the Day #4


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

This was taken on the rocks at Mooloolaba, Queensland. I was experimenting with long exposures to create a dreamy effect with the crashing waves, however the photograph is lacking warmth and unfortunately in Mooloolaba the Sun sets in the opposite direction to the open seas, so the lighting was very cool.

No Flash is Better


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

When taking photos at night your camera will automatically pop-up the flash and generate a powerful beam of light that will light up your immediate surroundings. This is great for close-up situations and for capturing those precious moments that you don’t have long to get.

However, the flash can be useless and thus spoiling your photograph when shooting from a longer distance or trying to capture a nicely lit building. The camera will shoot with a faster shutter speed when the flash is fired, this because it is relying on the flash’s light, but sometimes your camera isn’t that clever.

So the first thing to do is to get out of the auto mode and simply turn the Automatic Flash off. If you have the option of Shutter Priority than set your camera to that, otherwise just use the No-Flash mode.

Taking long exposures of star trails is really fun and interesting, but its only when all the exposures are stacked together that all your hard work is appreciated. So this program called “Star Trails” :) is brilliant for quickly stacking your shots!
