All things considered, my experiment with taking pictures of San Francisco with a big zoom lens, while using a tripod, worked fairly well.
I just wanted some photos of the city lit up at night, without the bouncing effect that I usually get when I hold the camera, but the darkness keeps the shutter open for longer. As you can see, it is an improvement, but gusty winds still produced some movement.
The ones where I wasn’t zoomed in so tight were better.
What I really need to do is stop being lazy, and learn how to adjust the shutter speed myself, instead of using the automatic settings.
But I am lazy, and if I learn something new, and don’t do it very often, I forget how.
I still had fun, and that is a good photo of a garbage can.
Well, that is pretty much it for my latest adventures in the Bay Area. Next, we say goodbye to the City by the Bay, and I start driving South. Don’t worry, I did some new stuff and some cool stuff. I drove different routes, saw cute kids, met a cool dog, and got diverted because of a huge landslide and a big fire.
