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?
Though I've taken 2 photography courses, I still am far from being a halfway decent photographer. That being said, I do a lot of traveling and I'd like to be able to show off my photos and say "I took this shot" someday. This blog is mainly so I can get critiques from people out there in the world. Please feel free to tell me what you like and don't like. Any help would be appreciated.
