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? :dunno: 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.
