I’m not a photographer by any means nor am I aspiring to be one. But I do love capturing memories and if they end up looking good I have no problem with that as well.
We had a short 2 month photography module when I was studying design and one of the practical classes was night photography. Mainly we learnt how to use exposure and different types of fun pictures you can click with long exposure.
Although the class was DSLR centric, these pictures are not taken by a DSLR since we don’t own one. We have a Canon G11 and it does a fairly descent job with exposures.
