    Hey everyone,

    I love shooting photos but really want to get better. Here are some of my best shots.

    I have some questions...
    I need somewhere that is really good at hosting pictures. Would it just be better just to buy my own domain name?

    Also, I suck at night shots and would like to get better. Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Use a tripod for night shots.

    Right I use a tripod. I'm more interested in help like using shutter speed and aperture and focal length.

    Eg: Here is a picture I took the other day. I couldn't figure out how to make the fogs not as exposed (Is that the word?) and the headlights to be clearer. Any helpful tips?

    Welcome to the forum!

    In the night shots of the truck, your matrix meter saw a bunch of dark so it thought it needed more exposure. Try this using spot meter off the headlights. Also, you could try matrix meter and neg compensation, say -2.0 to start and experiment from there.
