Photo Quickie: Long Exposure
When creating long exposures image, its best to use a remote release to avoid camera movement. If you do not have a remote release, the next best thing to use is the camera’s self-timer. Also set your camera to Mirror-up, when you click the shutter the first time the mirror will rise and lock into position; hit the shutter release button again to open the shutter. This allows time for the vibrations that the mirror makes to stop…. And don’t forget be mindful of any breeze that might be moving your subject.
