    Night photography..

    Didnt want to spoil the extravaganza thread which seems to be best kept user submissions.. And didnt really see where else this could slot in.

    A really good workshop / Q&A with Jeff Cable. Covering night shooting of the longer exposure type.



    Some great images tho this style tends to landscapes a little more than I like. But none the less inspiring stuff with some good ideas and storys to them.

    dont carry a tripod and usually use a cell phone, cigarette pack or a rock to prop the camera. lost a cell phone in the river once because of that. I definitely need to pick up a shutter release and liked what he said about the strap blowing in the wind. I didnt know quick release straps were available.

    Yeah I found it interesting and easily accessible.. I have never been into doing long exposure.. Now I think I want to have a tinker.

    I'm not finished watching the video, but so far very interesting. I may not buy a tripod, but I think I will buy a remote cable. However, long exposure is not usable when taking photos of people, like night life photos in Thailand.

    Not unless you want those ghostly movements (and paused people) which in itself can make for an interesting shot.

    I have a micro tripid.. Good for positioning on a wall or similar somewhere.. Now I want to learn how to use the timer setting.

    I agree tho.. static landscapes rarely do a great deal for me, he had some great shots in there, and was good advice.. But its not the type of shots that excite me. Street, documentary, nightlife, candid, those are the things I like.

    I have a friend in the hotel right now and we were talking about (not) carrying a tripod due to the inconvenience involved. He was talking about a bean bag. What an excellent idea. I Asia, there are plenty of seamstresses around to fabricate something. It would be ideal to carry and for placing on odd shaped surfaces as well.

    Gorilla pods are pretty much available in any photography shop in Thailand.
    I have a similar version for a GoPro. Probably the most versatile mount / tripod thingie I have seen.

    I think the gorilla pod would work well on the street with a lot of lamp post around and just enough to drop shutter speeds and isos down with out people moving too much. You would have to be in an active area set up. This was with a 200mm and I dont like to go lower than 100ss when using it. 1/125 at iso 10000 2.8

    Wide angle and lower mm lenses are more forgiving.

    As part of my internet networking to try to direct traffic to my business website I have done some cnn ireports. Periodically they have various assignments and when they look interesting or fun, I jump on the band wagon. I submitted 3 reports as you know me, I take more than enough pics. These deal with an assignment on neon. I have posted shots from Phnom Penh and Thailand.
