Back Alley

Back alley not far from my house. It's a nice place to find some 돼지머리 or pig's head for sale. Always a lovely sight... and smell...

Dongdaemun At Night

While waiting for the boyfriend at Dongdaemun, I decided to fool around with the camera a bit. I've wanted to fool around with the shutter speeds at night for a while. This was a good opportunity. Now, unfortunately, I don't have a tripod, which makes this kind of photography really difficult with my shaky hands. I had to balance my camera on a fence and set the timer to 2 seconds so that hitting the button didn't shake the camera. Even then 10 minutes of taking photos resulted in only 3 clear photos.

According to the stats on Flickr, these photos were taken between .5-.8 seconds at 100 ISO.

Most of my photos came out very blurry like this next one. I guess my hand just can't stay steady...

How did it turn out for my first time? Any recommendations for this kind of photography?
