    photos of traffic try F16 and expose enuff to get full streaks on ya frame

    for buildings...depends on how far...for example...f3.5 at 1s if u takin fullerton from esplanade roof

    keke... i using film SLR, so around what shld the shutter speed be for traffic?

    and for the building... i oreadi tried from my home. tried one shot at f9.5 for 1s.... i don't know how it will turn out. but the camera's meter only told me that it is terribly under exposed.... for a correctly exposed picture, it should be f9.5 for 30s. trust the camera? the subjects are quite far away... in fact very... cos i am trying to capture a whole scene... including the mrt station....

    yah tripod is a must. Trust the metering and bracket if you feel uneasy. To capture light streaks you need a long shutter speed.

    Try playing with your "bulb" mode with a lockable cable release and f/22... can try for like 15-30 sec exposures.
