    Not really. With a stationary subject and a tripod, motion blur at low shutter speeds shouldn't be an issue. Only thing I can think of is avoiding auto-ISO, but that's about it.

          These were my first (and only attempt) at night shooting. Equipment comprised of a good, solid tripod with a bluetooth shutter actuator to avoid any manually induced vibration. Settings were aperture priority, 100 ISO manually set, f8.

            thanks for the information but i don't think my camera has bluetooth, maybe one which is just plugged into the camera itself?

              No need for bluetooth, a timer delay for the shutter actuation should be built into all modern digital cameras.

                These are my very first night shots....all in the last few days, taken at Luton....both the pics include the EXIF data - I think the exposure were 15 seconds or so

                1. ALWAYS use ISO 100 (or lower if your camera supposrts it) to avoid noise.
                2. Obviously using a tripod - try not to zoom in too much, e.g. if using you 400mm lens because even the slightest movement at that length will show up, even on a tripod.
                3. Go for f7.1 and above for sharp and crisp shots and adjust your exposure time to make shot brighter or darker.
                4. I simply set my Canon for a 2 second delay after I push the fire button, which gives me time to move my hand away and any vibration dissipate before it opens the shutter.

                Personally I like to tone down my white balance in post processing, as I prefer not to have the yellow tinged floodlights - I find the cooler colours give a better colour - see the very last picture below, you'll see what I mean.

                Here are my night pics...

                    Not sure what your question is. You entered the reg. as N595FE which is correct. Is there a reason it should be considered hot?

                    • hello i've got an email from a pilot wanting to see if he can use one of my photos. i'm happy to give it to him but just wondering what resolution is good? i know the higher resolution will bring out flaws so just wanting to know what is best. thanks in advance

                      here's the image https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9439299

                        I think that's a question you should be asking the pilot, not posting here..

                        • i have asked more than likely won't get an answer for a little bit considering it's 1am but i am just asking wether there is a sweet spot which doesn't bring out flaws much but is still a decent size for instance if he wanted to print it out. thanks

                          Comment


                          • If someone wanted a phot of mine, I would give it to them at absolutely full size resolution. Flaws won't show up for the purposes he wants it for, e.g. he probably wants to zoom in as much as possible to see his face in cockpit, and for that you'll need to save the pic as full size, as opposed to 1280 for jetphotos. I would consider charging him if he wants you to send him a full resolution picture. Maybe 60? Depending on how goo the shot is.

                            • thanks for the feedback i have since given the image to him and he gave me some money in return, he wanted the original resolution and he seemed happy with it. again thanks for the feedback
