It has been a while since I had the time to play with the manual mode of a camera as as the local school was having a fireworks night in my back garden I thought I would have a play.
So I set my Nikon D5100 up on a tripod got out the IR shutter release and had a play.
The base settings are:
ISO : 100
F-stop : F11
Focal length : 18mm
Flash : None
Shutter timing : 1.9 – 5 seconds.
With the exception of some cropping I have not done any post editing at the moment, I plan this week to take one or two of the images and play with them in GIMP / Photoshop and see what I can do with them.
