    S3 at night under streetlamp

    Hi,

    Got so many normal day photos of the S3, i decided to try something else.

    I think it came out ok but has a bit of camera shake (was expected with 6s s/s - was a tad windy on a flimsy tripod)



    Also a bit random, but some interesting photos from the most recent goodwood revival:

    Cheers

    I like it. Nice moody shot! It's good to try different things and I know what you mean about having lots of similar shots! I've not had a chance to get out and shoot my A3 since buying it a few weeks ago, so hoping to do that this weekend and will post the pics.

    Just as a suggestion, if you can keep the camera still enough on your tripod, try a very small aperture to give the headlights that 'star' look.

    I tend to shoot from low positions when shooting cars so the camera doesnt have to be that high. Grab a sturdy box or something to sit your camera on till there's a few pennies for a chunkier tripod.

    Nice pic, and I agree about the aperture too

    yea problem was that with a lower aperture you obviously have to have a very long s/s and it was a bit too windy for that.

    Yea i think lower down would have looked much better.
