Long Exposure Shot

Went out this evening to take a couple of photos, found a conveniently placed roundabout, and this was the result. Really enjoyed taking these long exposure shots, once you get the camera set up, they're quite easy to pull off. If you're interested in doing something like this, I used an ISO of 320, aperture of 22, and an exposure time of 15 seconds, which should give you something to work with.

The long exposure shot captured using my D80 DSLR. Interesting lens flare from the streetlamps, and rather
confusing traffic lights ;)

Night Shots

Yesterday evening I managed to take the D80 out to try out some long exposure shots of cars and lights. It took a while to get set up, but after a while I managed to get the right settings for the light conditions, and got some fairly decent photographs (I think anyway!). Here are a couple of the best ones, let me know what you think. :)

The moon through a thick layer of cloud, taken with a
telephoto lens. 

Some cars on an intersection with a telephone box
in the background. I like the yellow indicator flashes myself.

New Blog

Hello :)

Hi everyone this is my new blog I guess. I come from London in the UK, and I enjoy taking photos, so I thought I'd post the best ones up here for you all to look at. I have a couple of cameras at the moment, but I use a Nikon D80 for most of the photos. Hopefully I'll keep this blog up-to-date and I'll use it to keep a log of the photos I've taken. Here are a couple of shots I've taken before, I hope you like them.


A boat at Chapman's Pool in Dorset, taken with an old cameraphone
A river near Twickenham in London, with a nice
reflection effect on the water
Some flowers taken against the sky using the Nikon D80,
overexposed - quite a nice effect I thought
