Success with long exposure night photography

One of the upcoming episodes of our Live call in for Your Day is going to feature digital photography. We'll talk about whatever the callers want, but getting tough pictures captured successfully usually seems to be a recurring theme. Here is a long exposure night shot in fog that I took in downtown Greenville. If you like it, why not give it a click and mark it a fave at Flickr. If you've got a photo question you'd like us to answer on the show, why not put it in a comment on this post or drop me an email at the address on the sidebar.

Parade Photos -- 2007 Scottish Games Parade in Greenville, SC

I shot some, several, a lot of pictures of Scottish Games Parade that piped it's way through downtown Greenville tonight. It's hard for me to shoot a lot of pictures in a small amount of time because the pocket camera I use takes a lot of time to recharge its flash or to move the pictures from it's internal memory to the card memory. Still, I shot a couple of hundred frames tonight in hopes of getting a few good ones. Here are a few:

The slideshow above is a Picasa slide show. This is the first time I have ever used it. I have a preference for the community tools built into Flickr, and first uploaded my pictures there. After 15 minutes or so, the upload had finished, but processing still had not. In fact, quite a few minutes later, Flickr still hasn't processed the pictures into my photostream. I got frustrated waiting, so I decided to give the PicasaWeb Photo Album a try. I like it. It worked when I wanted it to. I am sure there is something to be learned from that.

ps: The Flickr version finally got posted. Compare it here.

Artisphere 200704 sidewalk photo 9
I got some nice shots of some very cool sidewalk art at this year's Artisphere. The weather was really cooperative. It didn't wash this sidewalk art away in the middle of the festival for example.
