Couple of 30second exposures

Took these around 9pm last night. I've been wanting to try this for a while after seeing some other pictures on like this. Though I think my led flashlight might be a little too bright for it.

Any certain reason you were at iso 800?

i think the second photo is the best. others aren't the best mostly because of of the light.

How'd you know my iso was at 800? lol. No real reason I haven't really dont many 30second exposures. However lighting around my house is pretty much one street light that is about 50 yards away. What iso would you suggest?

i've dabbled a bit, got a Yamaha Acoustic. but i'm a drummer by trade. got a few demos out, but nothing special.
this is my best one for anyone that cares. I haven't made it into a youtube video yet, i'm too lazy. so download it. its DRM free, i promise.

Not bad man. I'm more into heavier stuff, but it sounds good.

That right there is why I tried 800 lol. Like I said I've never really messed with 30 second exposure at night. I was just trying a few different things.

Yeah At 30 seconds and iso 200(d300 200 iso is base) it wasn't near bright enough, so higher iso made it brighter ofc.

thats why i need a remote so i can have it on bulb settings and leave it for like 15 minutes and get some killer images.

You just put it on bulb setting and click the remote. Then come back in 15 minutes and click it the remote again to close the shutter.

if your camera can (more than likely but i'm not 100% sure on all the models) you just change to manual settings, change shutter speeds to bulb, and set your fstop and your good to go. just do what trent said.

make sure you have a fully charged battery as well.

Yeah just go in manual and then spin the shutter speed dial all the way to 30" and then the next one should say Bulb.
