Tonight I pulled out the new tripod and headed to the marina for my first attempt at after dark photography. Long exposures, low light…what fun, right? Yeah….I have a LOT to learn. I played around until a herd of skateboarders came barreling through and disrupted my quiet concentration.
This shot was probably the best attempt, but had to cropped because of some lens flare I just couldn’t live with. I know, David will
hate be annoyed by this because the entire reflection of the large boat isn’t captured!
Anyway, considering the slow shutter speed, how do I combat the flare from the lampposts and other light sources that will then become over exposed? Suggestions from those with experience with low light photography?
