Let me know what you guys think and possibly some tips on taking better nighttime shots. I have a "thing" for having sessions at night.

I haven't done much night photography, so I can't offer any tips or advice. But I did want to say that I love, love, love the 2nd one! Was that straight moonlight? What were your shutter speed, aperture, and ISO? If you don't mind telling me that is :sexywink:.

Honestly, I dont remember. I took that one a year and a half ago I think. It was straight moonlight and very little editing. I was a bit surprised it came out so well too. Believe it or not, that one was with a point and shoot. If I had to say what the settings were I think the shutter speed was pretty long; over 2.5 seconds I think, because the aperture wasn't adjustable and ISO Im guessing was like 200. I'll see if the shot's still on the camera I used.

Oh wow I completely forgot you could do that. How do you get access to the image-specific properties and other properties?

I feel so bad every time someone pulls up that info for me... because I'm always asking about settings. So I finally sucked it up and downloaded PhotoMe... which allowed me to install an add on to Firefox so I can right click and get all the exif data. The only problem is, I prefer to use Google Chrome as my web browser. Anyone know of another free program for reading exif that works with Chrome?

I use one called "EXIF Viewer" that works very well.


I wish the entire gravestone was in the frame in #2, but you really nailed the colors in all three
