Boston Skyline @ 4:45am
With the ducks that kept me company.
Lessons learned on my first attempt at night photography:
1- The ball head for my tripod sucks!! Once I would get it where I wanted it and tighten it, the whole thing would shift no matter what I did. So I had to overshoot where I wanted to capture and hope it fell into the correct position (or close enough!)
2 - Bring a small flashlight! (Duh!! So you cen see what the heck you are doing!!)
3 - Gloves would have been nice.
4 - (Another Duh!) Makes sure your battery is well charged, or at least bring along the spare!
I wasn't thinking when I left the house. I just figured that if I had to get up and the crack of dawn (or really before) and drive to and from the airport, I should take advantage of the situation.
At least now I know a great spot to go to try again, but I don't know if the ducks will be there. :)
