    Nice work everyone! You guys stepped up to the plate and I hope you learned something with this challenge. Low light photography is a great challenge to learn. It also can come in handy when you have a large crowd but you don’t want all the people in it. A long exposure with basically make people disappear.

    Example: there are people all over in the photo below. If you look close you’ll be able to see the ghost image of some of them that stood in one place too long during the photo.


    F/7.1 ISO 100 30 seconds at 34mm on a crop frame.

    You should contribute to the weekly challenges anyways. That's how you get better. You take more pictures. Some guys come up with really good challenges that push you to your limits and make you a better photographer.

    I recommend buying the book "Understanding Exposure" there's a link in the products discussed section at the bottom of this page. It helped me a bunch.

    Welcome. I agree that you should try the challenges when you can. The challenge is pretty low key and almost free of criticism unless advice is requested. I think we are all here to have fun and use the challenge to make us get out and take some pictures.

    Post up whatever you take for the challenge. That's what makes this thread so cool. It makes you experiment with different shooting styles and settings.

    As far as shutter speed goes. I found this chart

    And this chart

    I still get confused on which direction to go with Aperture haha. But the great thing about digital is you're not wasting film.

    Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert. There are guys in here with a lot more knowledge than I. Just adding my $0.02 :thumbsup:
