    Hey guys, Im new to the forum. I was recently on vacation and a friend of mine showed me longtime exposure, and i messed around with it a bit. I dont know much about photography, but what can you expect from a 14 year old. But, I enjoy it and I would like some feedback about the pictures I take, negative or positive. Oh, and of course a couple of tips to make me better.

    Lets do Fireworks first.

    I used longtime exposure for those about .5 seconds of it.

    Now here are some night longtime exposures with lights and streets:

    i really like 3, but 1,2,3 i think needs less light exposure. they look a little faded.

    They are eerie but I think they would have been a lot better with a tripod. Since you are new to long exposures, you may not know that for a long exposure, even a 1 sec. exposure, you need a tripod for it to be in focus and clear. It is impossible to hold the camera still for that long.

    I tried to do fireworks pictures without my tripod (because I forgot it:blushing: ) and even with using a table to help steady the camera, there is too much camera shake.
