Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
The City At Night
Newfound freedom in setting ISOs higher and using Image Stabilized lenses opens up many more low-light shooting possibilities. One is street scenes and cityscapes at night, now available for handheld shooting. So send us your handheld shots made in a city at night, and please include the following information: camera, lens, ISO, and how you achieved a steady shot.
This photo was made in New York's Times Square with a Nikon D40X and a Sigma 15mm f/2.8 lens; exposure was f/2.8 at 1/125 sec at ISO 800. Image was cropped from original framing.
