Capturing the mood when working late...

I went into Lyndon's room to check on him before I went to bed and this is what I found...
He had created a desk for himself complete with a laptop and an iphone. His homemade laptop and phone were made out of paper and the iphone charger was made out of 2 of his mini skate boards.

I couldn't help myself, instead of telling him to go to bed, I had to grab and camera to remember the moment. I love his imagination and creative mind. My little late night worker...








To capture images in the dark (without an ugly flash), you will want to increase your ISO and decrease your aperture. But just remember, the more you increase your ISO, the grainier your pictures will become. So it's important to find the correct balance.

For all of the pictures above my settings were: ISO 1000, 30mm, f/1.8, 1/30th sec. My shutter speed was still quite slow but I didn't want to increase my ISO much more because of the grainy issue. So instead, I held very still and squeezed the shutter button slowly as not to get to much camera shake.

i'm a total newbie so a question i have is what can each lens do? i feel stupid even asking haha. but i guess it would be nice to know the type of image you can capture with a certain lens. ex. is a telephoto lens used to take pictures of space?? :)

I would like to know how I can make my subjects look like a silhouette while the sun is setting? Are there specific settings my camera need to be at to take a picture into the sun and make the subject (i.e. a couple, a family) a silhouette?

Cristine and Casie...

Great questions!! Thank you so much for your input. It really helps to see where people are at. I will definitely be answering both of these.
