About six months ago I picked up a Canon XTi/400D/Kiss Digital X digital SLR camera. I've had a lot of fun playing and experimenting with the camera, but there is still a lot for me to learn. I wanted to test out some long exposures so on Saturday night I made a trip out to Yeouido and setup shop along the banks of the Han River.
Here is one of the few shots I managed to take (with a $45 tripod from the camera shops in Namdaemun):
A lot of people were lighting off fireworks and these folks just so happened to have some fun right in front of me. Smile, you're on camera!
I usually keep a spare battery with me at all times. However, this time around my spare battery was dead! I forgot to charge my spare so only have 10 pictures or so, my little excursion ran into a speed bump. Man, I think I need another battery...think of it as a spare battery for my spare battery. Does that make sense?
Since my SLR was not out of business, I turned to my point and shoot back up, my SD400 digital elph. This trusty camera is responsible for taking the precious videos that appear on my blog. I also use it to take about 90% of my food pictures. Anyways, there is also a feature to do long exposures, but the pictures have significantly more noise compared to a dSLR:
This girl had fun with a sparkler in front of me--what a perfect opportunity for a Kodak momen...err...a Canon moment:
I'll be back to Yeouido again, but this time around I'll bring 6-7 spare batteries--think that's enough? Anyways, what camera are you currently using and where do you like to take pictures?
