At a loss as to what do on a rainy afternoon when it's too dark to shoot anything worthwhile. I figured I'd experiment with light-trails and zoom effect. This pretty much is an experimentation if anything - they're not all that good. But at least it gives me an idea of what shutter speed to look at and what aperture. I've running around f/9 on the shots to get the photos to keep from over-exposing and giving me a foggy luminescence that I didn't want. What i wanted was a cool crisp light trail coming from the various points of illumination (including reflections of lights on the wet pavement
Last but not least, I did a light trail of some still-up Christmas lights. Let's just say they made an interesting impression on the photograph.
As I said, they aren't very good, but it gives me a rather quick formula to use when I start working on my Surrey North night light trails shots.
