Day 24 – Dusk Cityscape Shoot
Just like with the waterfall – try to do your own cityscape photo at night.
Shutter: 30 seconds
Don’t forget, when using a high f/stop when doing dusk/night photography will require a longer shutter speed to allow for enough light into the camera for the photo to expose properly. Keep you ISO as low as possible for this, but if you do have to increase it, try to keep it under 400 so the noise doesn’t overpower the stars or other lights in the sky.
Get out and take some night photos of your own city using manual mode. The settings we used in video is a good starting point. Take a test shot and see what that gets you.
If your night photography is going to include any stars, they will start to streak on you around 30 seconds. But, by the time they start to move it will look more like the camera was bumped rather than the start of star trails. So you might want to keep your shutter to about 25 seconds to avoid stars moving in your photo.
