Hi, great shots there... I love the millenium bridge shot.
I'm new to photography myself and I'm looking to do some night time photography.
Recently I have been trying some similar shots of the millenium and the tyne bridge and haven't had the best results.
I.m using a Nikon D3100 with Nikon 55-300mm lens... I've generally been snapping at about 70-100mm and I've experimented with ISO400/800, F5.6/F8 and F16. However, my shots never seem right. I normally use aperture priority mode and it automatically selects the shutter speed, which bounces around from 8secs - 20secs.
Just wondering if I should be changing my metering settings maybe, the spot/cumlative matrix setting?
Could anyone help with any tips for nightime photography?
Thanks for any help.
