blue moon

shot predawn with slow shutter w/flash.

the benefit of a slow shutter is that it allows time for light from a further distance to travel back to it to record. in very low light situations like this, camera shake doesn't show up too much so they're easy point and shoot type. sometimes it's too hard for auto focus, so then I prefocus on the tree (guess distance, usually anything after 20ft is infinity) and fire. hardest part if figuring out how to set it that way easily. luckily my canon 30d has an icon (person w/star) that does the trick. the icon next to it (the last icon on my dial-a crossed out flashbolt) is just slower shutter speed priority (no flash) which is somewhere else called "aperture priority" because it gives preference to fstop (depth) over shutter speed (needing to stop action.) oh sometimes I miss the good old nikon F2 bodies/ w/no batteries....
