Review:



From the Author: Sample Photos

Fireworks (Click on image to zoom)
Most of the time when shooting fireworks, the subject is the fireworks themselves but for this photo I tried to concentrate on the boats in the bay that were there to see the fireworks. To time the photographs, I had the camera locked into a tripod and used a cable release with the camera set to bulb mode so that the shutter stayed open as long as I held the button on the release. Taken at 2.7 seconds, f/16 and ISO 400
Ferris Wheel (Click on photo to zoom)
This photograph is of a ferris wheel in motion and the pattern is actually made up of the light trails as the wheel turns. This was taken using a 3 second shutter speed to give the wheel time to move enough to get a good pattern. I zoomed in very close so that the image was more abstract, and to me, more interesting. Taken at 3 seconds, f/22 and ISO 200
Dave Navarro (Click on photo to zoom)
Photographing concerts can be really tough. To freeze the action in the low light, a shutter speed of 1/160 second was used along with a wide aperture of f/2.8 and the ISO was pushed all the way to ISO 2500. I waited until the light was at it’s brightest, then took a quick series of shots with this frame being the best of the three. Taken at 1/160 second, f/2.8 and ISO 2500
