Week 26′s image was captured above Brisbane’s Riverside Expressway from an overpass. Adding the interest of car light trails into your landscapes may seem like a hard task but with the correct equipment and planning you will be hooked on it. The idea behind this post is to explain the process and give you a few pointers as to what locations work best.
You don’t always have to drive for hours to capture an interesting photo. Sometimes a great shot is on your doorstep. Most of the photos from this year have required at least a 20 minute drive, with many a good hours drive away from home. This weeks image however was taken within 5 minutes walk of my house.
Whilst I have shot the Brisbane city skyline at night many times before, this week I wanted to test the performance of my Canon 40D in regards to ISO settings. This post will be about how to test the ISO on your camera. These types of test are a great way to learn the limits your camera has so that when you are out in the field you can select the best settings for your gear.
