Every time I have tried to take pics at night they turn out like total crap. I was trying to get some pics for the current photo contest and needed to do it at night and actually got some decent pictures. I used a small tripod that screws into the bottom of my camera and used the 2 second time delay so the camera would be perfectly still when it took the shot and keep the light from streaking and blurring. It worked much better than any other attempt at shooting at night so I was happy with it. I don't have an excellent camera, its a NIkon coolpix s600, good enough for what I typically need it for but might invest in something nicer soon.
Here are a few of the better ones.
Pic came out good but the 3'rd brake is a little overpowering with all those led's in there, lol
2004 FX4 REG CAB SOHC
Gibson Dual Exhaust, Flashpaq, 31x10.5x15 Wrangler Territories on Alcoas, Boston Acoustic/Clarion speakers, Rancho shocks, K&N filters, nightshaded tails, clear corners, few other small things and one large to-do list .
that first one is awesome actually, i think ive found my new backround
Thanks, that's the petro canada oil refinery in the background. Going to go out again one night this week and get some with the river and downtown, now that I can take decent pictures at night.
Any suggestions of things i can try out or settings on my camera (Have just been using the default night landscape setting and haven't gotten into the technical stuff yet) I can play with to help out with night photography would be great!
