Kan Win

Night Shots, Outdoor In Thailand

Recommended Posts

As part of the celebrations for H.M The King’s 84th birthday (December 2011), the Royal Household Bureau opened up the Grand Palace at night from 6.00pm until midnight for 5 nights. This was the first and only time that the general public have ever been allowed into the palace at night.

Using the flash to fill in, will probably shorten the overall exposure

and hence reduce the glare of the street lights.

Alternatively try re-framing the shot to get the street lights

out of the frame.

You have to experiment

At least with digital cameras you can see the result immediately,

then decide if a second shot is needed.

Right, flash would not have been appropriate there.

Was that the only shot?

I guess f2.8 is the maximum aperture?.

How did you arrive at the time?

As you are in a learning phase it pays to try different combinations,

perhaps f4 with 7 and then 10 sec.

It is all digital now, so no film wasted

If it is possible, a cable release is good for shots like this,

to avoid any extra camera shake
