    Decided to take a shot at some long-exposure shots since I love that particular type of photography. I know I could've done better, but these were just fiddling w/the camera settings and I have this little mini tripod to work with until I get a full sized one tomorrow. Out of 10, I thought these were the "better" ones.

    Any pointers for taking photos like this?

    Well I think the first step is to find something more interesting to photograph :mamoru:

    True. With my crap tripod I'm kinda limited on where to set up. Plus this was a test, not a serious venture.

    Try to find stuff with lots of different color lights, avoid just orange light, find areas where there is contrast, find areas where large panes are lit up by light..

    Took that on campus, that's what I mean about contrasting light colors.

    Set ISO the lowest it goes, then use use a few more seconds shutter speed to compensate.
