Well, here we go. Thought about the house we live in, looks OK in the viewfinder in brighter daylight. Then thought what would it look like just after sunset. We have daylight saving here so I thought just after 8pm, Eastern Daylight Saving Time might be ok.
I put the camera on the tripod, set aperture priority with the largest aperture on the lens, f4 and selected ISO 200 with auto focus and matrix metering.
I had a look at the back of the house and there wasn’t much light under the verandah roof and the yard itself looked jet black with little or no detail.
So, around the front where the street lights show a soft light and the trees cast a little shadow.
With some of the interior lights turned on here was some detail in the house and I could see vaguely some detail inside the windows.
My viewpoint was roughly mid centre ands far enough away from the house so that I could get the whole front into the frame.
The resulting exposure was 10 seconds at f4 with the lens set at 16mm.
Now all I have to do is work out how to get the image into my blog.
Well, that’s it for No 1.
Hope you like it.
