@Jamie: Yes, this one is really the best! Anyway I need a stativ and more spare time, especially at the dark :)

Some great pictures there – love the fireworks one!
I’ve already had a go at the startrails one myself: :-)

Great photo Martyn!

We do actually have a tutorial on how to make these. For those that want to give it a try, here’s the link:

Seaside shots such as this one http://cdaphoto.blogspot.com/2009/06/potos-nights.html can be interesting. But I think startrails photos are really magnificent.

I do want to try the painting with light with a long exposure technique. I keep forgetting I want to! Maybe I’ll try it tonight.

I really like the moving star-type photographs as well. And the fairgrounds!

Owning a full time portrait studio I hardly ever get the chance to go out and shoot at night. When I do it’s like my special ME time.

Instead of using a shutter release cable, is it just as effective to set the timer on the shutter so avoid the shake?
I found it very hard to take photos from our rooftop due to the high wind factor (shook the tripod). Had to settle for one at dusk just as the lights were coming on but light enough to avoid very long exposure times.

Smile for the camera!
