Sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone and try something different. I've wanted to try this for some months now and noticed some lit buildings a few days ago. However, this time they didn't leave the lights on, so I had to search for alternatives. It's weird that at night, the light seems to come from all sides at once. It's possible to make some quite extraordinary photos at night. However, my equipment is suboptimal. To be able to open the shutter more than 30 seconds and ensure no vibration, I use a remote trigger. The trigger I own is wireless and the manufacturer forgot to add a second switch for bulb exposures, so you have to keep pressing the shutter release button. That in itself is not even that bad, if the trigger weren't wireless. The whole time while pushing the trigger, the transmitter keeps sending signal thus draining the battery of both the transmitter and the receiver. So I'll add a wired shutter release to my wishlist :) Furthermore to enable even longer exposures I'm also interested in a ND filter or variable ND filter. 323/365: November 19, 2010
