    I was wondering how to get a shot like this to turn out with the aircraft lit up in one part of the photo and a trail of lights behind it. I'm assuming I have to use bulb mode, second-shutter sync on my external flash, manual mode, an f/stop around 8, and ISO 100 or 200, and mounted on a tripod. Are there any other things that I need to take into consideration when taking a shot like this? I will be attempting the shot at Gravelly Point if that helps any.
