Josh's best friend Dorey, who is an excellent photographer, is staying with us for a few days, and I've been picking his brain for photography tips. Last night we played around with the settings on my camera and took some shots late at night outside the house.
The below shot was taken at 9:30 pm when it was completely dark out. Only the light of the moon was used to expose the photo. This shot was taken with ISO 800, Aperture 3.5, and a shutter speed of 20 seconds. Leaving the shutter open that along allowed the camera's sensor to absorb 20 seconds worth of moonlight, which lit up the front of the house and made the sky blue instead of black. The focus is not great, but I still thought it was neat to get this kind of picture in the dark.
It still looks pretty rough, but it will come together rather quickly. At least that's what we're telling ourselves. I'll be back with progress shots soon!
