Moonlight on Lake EriePosted: November 15, 2011
I still haven’t gotten the hang of night photography. I’ve read plenty of tips and advice on the matter, and while I hesitate to blame the camera, I suspect that might be part of the problem. I used a tripod, lowered the ISO, and tried a variety of settings. It was an extremely windy night so some blurring was unavoidable.
I played with the white balance setting too.
Ah well. It’s worth practicing. Someday I’ll have the camera on my wish list, and the practice will pay off. I hope.
I also promised you a look at A Christmas Story House. I’m afraid these shots were not much better. It was that time of the evening when a tripod would have come in handy, but I didn’t lug it with me to Tremont.
So I did the only reasonable thing to do: Photoshopped ’em.
See the leg lamp in the window? (If you’re familiar with the movie, you probably noticed it right away.) A few other houses in the neighborhood have leg lamps, too. One was attached to the outside of the house. Now that’s getting into the spirit of things.
M and I are planning to go back up to tour the house and to see the Christmas lights. They have a Lolly the Trolley tour on weekends beginning December 2nd.
That’s it from Cleveland. I’ve been sorting through some of the photos from the Twinsburg Ledges Park and hope to bring you some more of those tomorrow. And if the sun should happen to visit us in the Bogs, I may update you on how things are progressing around the pond here at Breezy Acres.
It is so gray and windy and wet out there right now. I’d probably sink into the mud and disappear. I’ve been taking my walks out on the road. The camera has been staying at home because I wanted to sort through all the photos I’ve taken from the past month or so.
Thanks for dropping by! Wear your boots tomorrow. You’ll need them if we’re going to take a quick walk around the pond to see what’s happening out there.
