Well I really don't know where to start so I guess Ill start with the type of pictures Id like mine to look like. http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116044 The pictures in this post is what Id like to achieve. This is one of my first try just trying to record the even. http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii184/Nero-O9/P1120086.jpg not as clear as i would like. This was taken just messing around. http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii184/Nero-O9/P1120095.jpg I'm not sure what settings I had. I'm using a Olympus E-500 and what ever lens it came with. I don't really know much about this camera and the advanced manual is hard to under stand. Any tips or a break down on how the settings influence the shot would be very helpful.
