I set my camera up on a tripod and did some test shots for the no day light brief, just to see how the exposure came out, and to get used to using my camera on long shutter speeds.
My camera settings were: f5.6, ISO 400 and I doubled the number of seconds the shutter was open for, with each exposure…
I am reasonably happy with the results but I would have hoped my camera could record more than 30 seconds, to see if they would look better any lighter (as I think some of them would, considering the stars and how dark the night sky was…). I will be experimenting more with long shutter speeds to get better at calculating it and, as I was informed by my colleagues after shooting, I should have turned my camera on to ‘Bulb’ mode to create longer exposures.
