I will post the odd photograph on here with a link to the various sites / galleries I have been creating.

Doing it this way saves on Richards bandwidth etc.
So here's a start.

The settings are more or less the same as film cameras.

If you want to have some learning fun then take a picture in Auto. then take the same shot with various settings and compare them all.

That way you will get to see exactly what differance the settings make.
AND if doesnt cost anything to view them all either.

This type of photographery is mainly trial and error Trevor.
The set up is as follows;-
Tripod - cant do it with out and has to be off the boat.
You may be surprised but I have seen many photographers using a tripod on a rocking boat !

The Lens is a 14 - 44mm Wide angle and was at 14mm.
Setting were in manual focus at infinity and the F stop was at F8.
I use a radio control shutter release and the shutter was in the BULB setting.
That is so the shutter stays open for as long as I allow.

The shutter time on the bridge one was 10 minutes.

The other sky one was pointed just before the vertical.
Same setting but the shutter open for 916 Seconds - 15 1/4 minutes.

The timing is the main thing to try and get right.

What I do is double up on the timing .

E.G.  I start at say 2 minutes then view the picture.
Then try 4 minutes, then 8 minutes and so on till I think it looks about right.

The prevoius night I though I would give some changes to the settings. I made the apperture smaller so I could get a longer open shutter opening.
This was by now abour 0230 !
Getting tired and cold, so everything was setup. Stopwatch running as wanted to try a shot of about 30 minutes.

I hit the radio release, set the stop watch going and went into the boat to get warm and have a drink.

After 30 min I released the shutter and brought the gear back to the boat.
Had a quick look at the last picture to see what a 30 minute expouser looked like and -----

The battery in the camera went flat 11 second after I went into the boat.

Still always another day !!!  Blush

Thanks very much Paul. Fascinating information. Yes I know very well the need for tripods as I used them extensively with my film cameras. I have to admit I do need to get into the mindset of no longer using a frame of film everytime I press the shutter. Its a habit of caution which I'm finding difficult to leave behind!

I used to use remote cable release's for long exposures with my old cameras but my Canon does not have such a facility. I can't even find a delayed shutter release which I also used to use to avoid camera shake for long exposures when pressing the shutter. This also let you run round the front to take a picture of yourself!

I also suspect the Canon does not have a facility for a manually timed exposure. ie by just holding the shutter open as you do with the radio control. I doubt radio control is an option for me with my Canon?

Hmmmm   bring back my Practika's with all the needed switches and a spring like a king size bed!

Thanks again Paul.

LP, the link to "a few days on the Broads" is lovely, but "Night Skies" goes to wedding photography.

At least it didn't go to bikini self-portraits!

Hi Lisa
If you go to the Night skies web link you also need to go to the sub directories on the GALLERY pull down then into LANDSCAPES and to NIGHT TIME PICTURES.

Hope that helps.
