"Did everything wrong"


Reston, US
          

Fourth of July on a boat in the Potomac River. Thus, no tripod, no slow exposure; just the D7100 and my 35mm 1.8. Instead of flowing colors I got pinpoints of color. But the shoreline helps make the photo something more than colors--I hope! What could I have done differently?

For a shutter speed of 1/250, they came out much better than I expected. If you are in a boat as small as what is in the pictures, there is not much you can do due to the wave action. However, experimenting with slightly slower shutter speeds and VR set at "active" might be good to try.

Forgot about active vr, will try to remember next year. I tried a slower shutter speed and that caused some of the colors to look blotchy.

Yah, ideally you are looking for 3-5 second exposures from a locked down tripod on a non-moving platform. But when you cannot have that, experimenting is the way to go.
