    bored and I'm practicing some really dark shots... not to mention it's like 11:00PM. Let me know what you think.

    Program Mode, ISO speed: 100, and shutter speed was open as far as I could put it since it's dark and I'll like how it looked.

    Then my friends suggested this: Tv Mode, Shutter Speed: 30", and WB: Tungsten.

    Comments, Concerns.... remember its dark out.

    and how do you take a picture of black car? I'm obviously not going to get the car to show up more without photoshopping with extreme brightness.

    Im not quite focusing on the body of the jeep because the black with def not come up this late at night

    Just a very hard shot to get without extra lighting, but I'm attempting to do with what I have to understand my limits.

    Other side...

    yeah.. saying it's dark isn't a good excuse... with the proper exposure and natural moon light you can make it look just like it's daylight out.

    not the best example here... I was just experimenting in our yard, but this s a 2 hour exposure with little moon light It was clear skies when I started, but clouds rolled in and blocked out most the star trails..... only resized in PS.. exposure started about 9pm

    I've got lots of night shots that I've done, both natural light, and painting.

    Very easy to make your own for like $0.50 if you can find the fricken 3 pin connector that is proprietary.

    It is just two switches (one for autofocus, one for shutter release).


    On the rebels, etc... it just takes a standard 1/8th headphone plug.

    Practice in a parking lot in a mall or shopping center. You'll have the lights from the lot to cast light on the vehicle.

    Nope. I tried that but it was still a bit dark. I just stood pretty far back (almost the other wall of my 2 car garage) and painted it in. Took me a few tries to find where the most light needed to go but this was like my 6th attempt. The others were dark in certain areas.


    oh, and it was a $2 flashlight with old batteries, that may also have something to do with it :o
