    hi all. i am new member here.
    i bought my camera a two weeks back and have taken many pics since then.

    i have graduated and am going to leave my college campus next week. There are particularly two places in the campus which I want to record in a photograph. I want to record it well. These are the places I spent most of my time chatting with my girlfriend :)

    well, i see that there is some street light. From your previous post you told me that you dont have a tripod. This is what I would do. Put the camera on a stable surface, set the camera to take picture on a timer (so that it wont detect your movement pushing the button), then set your aperture to maximum opening and then adjust your long shutter so that you have enough light. Bump up your ISO as needed. EDIT: NO Flash of course!

    Im a stuctural engineer and that bus stop roof doesnt look very safe LOL.. strong wind could really hurt somebody :)

    i always liked that technique ....if you can get a narrow beam u can paint like a stick figure with a neat bow on the top ....lol i think that will be neat

    also in #2 try moving to the right and back a bit then i think you can use the street lights as leading lines and some passing car might some ore intresting leading lines

    you use long shutter and then point your flashlight to the area it is taking picture while the shutter is open. Move it around to make a cool effect.

    the painting is when you take a dark scene and use a flashlight and focus on only the parts you want in the picture so essentially you'll be tracing for example the bench or the tree etc

    No LOL.. while your camera is taking a long shutter shot, you use a FLASH LIGHT and light the subject you want to put on the camera.
