CWD164: Sparks Fly.

Night Shot Redux. These are great fun and actually a little counterintuitive. go out in the dark of night and take a picture with a looong exposure. The secret formula for digital night photography is ISO 100, F.8, 8 Seconds. naturally you need to have the camera on a steady surface or tripod.


Used my 85mm f/1.8 lens - I needed far less shutter time than I expected.


I have a couple more shots like this, with us in better focus, but I loved how the little sparkles (dust?) ended up right on our faces in this one.
