On December 9th, 2012, I was out and about from from 1:00 AM till 3:00 AM so I could do some low light photography for the first time ever. Obviously, first time of whatever is not going to yield the best result, but I was happy with what I got. I had to bump up the ISO to 3200, and so if one took a really close look at the building blocks (pixels) one could see noises. I tried taking them pictures with really low aperture number such as around 3 to 5 f-stop range, and I also tried taking them pictures with very high f-stops. The results were mixed. Obviously, one needed to slow down the shutter speed to a very high degree so enough light could enter the sensor, and so I tried to use a tripod whenever I wanted to let the shutter speed opened at 25 to 30 second shutter speed range. As I got bored of the tripod, I tried to take pictures with slow enough shutter speed, but obviously not at anywhere near 30 seconds and usually lower than 1 second. Anywhere near 1 second might result in tired, shaky arms and hands, making them photos to be rather blurry. Anyhow, I think I could have done better if I was more prepared. You can check them photos out by clicking on the sneak peek photo within this blog post or click on this link. Enjoy!!!
