    Re: How to take photos on attractions without a flash?

    I need to go back to college and take a photography class, because I don't understand a thing you guys said, but it's quite clear that your dark photos kick my dark photos' butts.

    Just remember that 1/60 is about the slowest you can go without blur

    what you can do if you dont want to use full manual is set it to S (shutter priority).
    then set the shutter to 1/60 -1/80 and the camera will set the right aperture ISO and so fourth.
    Maybe for the Nikon? Is that what you mean? On my Sony I can be as low as 1/15 of a second without blur sometimes. Mostly I'm at 1/30 to 1/40.

    EDIT: And my green ghost guy on Leota's wall pic, that was at 1/6th of a second, obviously without a tripod.

    Which model is it?
    Typically if it's a point and shoot type, they don't do very well in lowlight conditions. Too many things going against it as in shutter lag, slow AF, and very limited high ISO capability.

    I don't know But I am planning to buy it at the grocery store. It would be mostly a shoot type like you said.

    Without knowing you're budget, if it's close to $300, you might want to think about getting a used Canon 10D/Digital Rebel.

    If you're not going to do alot of lowlight high ISO, then the Kodak will be fine.

    That Mickey shot was with the Canon 10D, but with a very pricey lens 'cause of the focal length and wide aperture of f2.0

    Really? Whenever I shoot at say 1/50 or slower I need to be extremley steady or use a tripod.

    Not really much I can add that hasn't already been said. The only thing I'll mention is the lenses with the gyroscopic image stabilizers rock! They are pricey, but you can get down to around 1/10 sec handheld with them.

    Re: How to take photos on attractions without a flash?

    This is a great thread. I love taking photos at DL and I really enjoy seeing others photos.

    I haven't uploaded any of my photos to this thread. Is it difficult?

    Depends on what you are shooting, but if there is enough lighting with the right lens it's fine.

    The one with the Steady Shot built in, it makes sense how you're able to get usable shots at 1/6 sec.

    Thanks

    Re: How to take photos on attractions without a flash?

    On this same vein, I'm looking for some good books on photography, specifically the techniques we're talking about here. I just got a Nikon D70 about a month ago and I'm in a little over my head with it. Any recommendations?

    Is the camera and all it's functions overwhelming you or is using an SLR?

    I took one course of basic photography and the rest was mainly from online forums or websites.

    Here's one geared for Nikon users, but the techniques can be used for any SLRs.
