A few quirky tips:
Rather than give you the standard boring tips eg: Use a tripod, which everyone knows….. here are some more exciting tips.
Tip 1: If you want a long exposure during the day, you can spend a fair chunk of money on a neutral density filter. A cheaper alternative is welders glass! It works perfecty. Used for eye protection by welders, it’s dark tint also allows for extremely long shutter speeds during the day. You can pick it up for just a couple of dollars of Ebay. But beware, welding glass often gives you a green tint. So fire a few practice shots and then create a custom white balance to fix the problem.
Tip 2: Keep things interesting by using unusual angles. If shooting light streaks, why not shoot from down on the path at tyre level? Using a gorrillapod or a small tripod to keep the camera still.
Tip 3: Use a remote shutter cable if you have one. Keeping your hands off the camera, to avoid any shake. They are also handy for candid shots, camera around the neck, cable and button in your hand.
Tip 4: Use a small aperture (F22) and you should be fine. You don’t want to overexpose the image. Or just use the shutter priority mode on your camera, so that the aperture is sorted for you.
