I wont do any intro as i think most of you are from oppo. But. Recently, ive stepped up my photo game, and i took a photojournalism class at my college. Just for fun honestly. No longer could i shoot strictly cars. I had to involve people. Anyways, i had a night assignment (to photo anything at night, no people necessary this time), so here are a few.

That image above is actually two images (below) i combined together in gimp, since both shots had 1 item i desired to have.

The above images were all long exposures, 25 seconds or more. 100 iso. And a medium f/.

Then of course, i had to let everyone in my class know i was 'that guy' who photographed his car.

the next one is sadly a tad over exposed. But i really liked the cars that drove by on the road off in the distance.

.such lens flare. so circle. much light.

This setting was pretty much my exam on how to use the K value in white balance. With the yellow parking lot lamps, it created such a horrible light source without tinting the photo... O well.

Lastly, i have seen a few shots like this online on various places and finally got around to trying it. Not too hard actually.

The people in my class were all impressed with the in car shots. Well they were more worried that i was actually using a camera while driving. "we're you actually driving when you took that" was the first question i got. -_- Nooooo i just had a lot of lasers... And that was from the photo teacher himself... And at that point i questioned if he'd ever done night shooting... /end rant

I took a ton of the in car shots too. But these are probably the better of them. Maybe ill do more later someday again.

One thing i have learned from photojournalism is to caption your shots. I didnt do this here, but id recommend everyone try it. In a sentence or two, answer the "who, what, when, where, why" about your photo. I finally understand the importance of captioning.

For equipment, i just use a nikon d200. And for the above shots, just a standard kit lens. the 18-150 or whatever it is, its sad i dont even know haha. But im interested in picking up that nikon nifty fifty. the prime 50mm. So maybe soon ill get one. And maybe ill post more often in here since i enjoy photography quite a lot.
