So at the very last minute I decide to rush out to a spot I know to set up and try to catch some interesting shots at dusk and beyond. Because it was last minute I didn’t quite make it but I did get a bunch of shots. Most are useless, however — little more than a fight with my camera over what I want it to do, with it winning most of the rounds. I need to read up more on night photography, because my camera assumes I want my night shots to look like day shots. No matter how I adjust the settings, it compensates something else to ensure I don’t accidentally get the shot I want. In manual mode I was able to finally get something sort of close, after like 15 shots at different shutter speeds. Boy, my point & shoot was dead easy. Set the ISO to 100 and adjust the shutter until you get something with which you’re happy. Anyway, I’ve got the books and I’m confident I can overcome this little learning curve. This is, after all, only my second time out.
