Techniques and Process 1A – Exposure on Christmas Lights

(Outcome 2, Page 33 )

For this task i photographed the Christmas Lights throughout Leeds City Center. I shot the images on Bulb at first then began to take the images on a longer shutter speed and move the camera whilst shooting in order to create light affects.
From this extra development on light exposure i now know that at night and using bright lights you need your camera settings must be set to certain settings to get the affect you want.  I managed to capture man images of light trails. I could now go out at night with a tripod and capture these images.
A tripod must be used however for the long exposure and to stop camera shake. I did not use a tripod for my images however but now know for greater results, as a longer exposure is needed i must use a tripod.
Overall i need practice using this technique. Some of my images are out of focus due to camera shake. However in some this is hidden due to the technique i used of moving my lens whilst the shot was exposed. I like the images i produced, i just want more practice through the whole process.
