Carnival Lights

I was not prepared to run into this tonight and did not have my tripod with me.  I found a nice low safe place under this ride and brace hard against a rail.  Slowing your shutter speed down is the key.  Similar to the waterfall photos, you are trying to capture movement.  In order to do so you must manage the light intake with  complimentary ISO, shutter and F-stop setting.  These are at 28mm, 2S @ f/7.1 w/ ISO100.  


  1. Sweet photo! I wish I had the equipment to do stuff like this.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. The name of the band my brother is in is Cayerio. They're based out of Memphis, TN, and have a style similar to Rage Against the Machine. Cayerio is scheduled for a national tour early next year. Be watching for them!

    Happy Blogging!

  2. Hey there. This capability is in nearly every digital camera ever bought. It's a matter of turning off "auto" and getting into some basic photo theory and creativity. I'm going to check out CAYERIO.
