Our new camera has so many settings to choose from that it’s taking me a little while to learn about them. It’s not always easy to know which one is best for a particular type of photo. Something like Closeup is easy, unless it’s a close-up of a book; should I choose Text and zoom in, or stick with Closeup?
In a moving car, do I choose Landscape or the Motion setting? The subject is not in motion – I am.
For the first time, I used the Night Landscape option as we were driving home in the dark. There was a really long delay before the shutter sound, then another long delay before the photograph showed up on the screen. At first I was really annoyed that they were blurry.
So, I experimented (as much as one can when riding along at 60 m.p.h. in the dark) with shots of taillights and traffic lights and neon signs and lots of things.
