    Hi,

    Normally i would set my camera to bulb mode, around F/11. For SLR or DSLR, a cable release or remote control is necessary and most importantly a sturdy tripod to minimise camera shake.

    Here is my sample shot of last year NDP.



    Me still learning, so try again this coming NDP.

    Do a search in this forum with regards to this topic.

    Feedback is the wrong forum to ask such question. I am moving it to a more appropriate forum.
