    We had a nice turnout for the first photo assignment, so a big thanks to all the participants. The theme for this week will be a more technical theme, one that KSmattfish suggested in fact :) The theme Blur: Slow Shutter Speed The end date for this will be next Saturday, May 7th. Good luck and challenge yourself to try new things :)

    awesome topic.. good luck to all that enter. Unfortunately my camera doesn't have the option of adjusting the shutter speed *shrugs* thems the breaks i guess. I can't wait to see people's shots for this one.

    I can only use my film camera for that and therefore won't ever be able to meet the time limit of only one week, for I'd have to finish the roll of film, hand it in, wait for the prints to be back...

    It's an assignment though, not a contest...I don't see the problem with handing it in late...do any of you see a problem?

    I don't have a problem.. in that case I MAY be able to participate. my bro in law got a cannon EOS 750 that he was given the other day, and told me i could borrow if i wanted. Only thing is no money to get film or a new battery - so if my tax refund gets here in time i can hopefully participate :D

    I'd say so :) The whole point is to get people to take pictures with certain things in mind, so whatever it takes to do it works for me :)

    As far as them being late that's no problem either...I personally like the deadline to force myself to do it, but other circumstances are understandable :) Again the point is to challenge ourselves to do things we wouldn't do and to get out there and shoot, so I say post em late :) Better late than not at all!!!

    I know this is kinda a silly question to ask but what did you mean by CG? (this probably should be posted in the question adn answers section but since somene mentioned it in this thread i figured i wouldn't get in too much trouble for asking in here).

    What camera are you using? Do you have any exposure mode choices?

    Many point-n-shoots have a night scene mode that sets the shutter low. Choosing landscape mode will close down the aperture for lots of DOF, and then the shutter has to slow down to make up for the light loss.

    i'm using the EyeQ Duo 1.3MP I found some of the basic stats about it and this is what it says about exposure...
    Exposure: Auto exposure and auto white balance

    as far as I know this one doesn't have a night option on. though i found some settings that might be where it would be if i had it.. AWB, Sunny, Fluorescent and tunsten? thats the only place it could be (i've got through all the settings on here and thats the only one that seems semi related). Like i said its a cheap 50 camera, i didn't really expect much from or for it to have last as long as it has lol.
