Hi

This is my first night shot on my new Olympus c750uz

How can i get the picture so that the subject lighting is not overexposed and while getting the surrounding abit brighter?

the settings i have for this is shutter priority, f2.8 1/1 iso200

please critique



i've seen some nice night shots where the entire picture is well lit...how do i achieve that?



thanks

i like night shots.....i wish my camera would go farther than 15 seconds....i can't use a higher iso because of noise....

You could take two pictures. One for the sky and one for the house. Use a tripod so everything is in exactly the same position. Then load the two pictures in Photoshop as one picture with two layers. If you have the photo of the house overexposed at the top delete the house and the correctly exposed one will show through. If the have the correctly exposed sky underneath then delete the sky.
I hope that made sense.

Cokin has a digital camera filter setup that does not require a screw-in ring. It has a bracket that mounts to the tripod socket under the camera and holds the filter elements in front of the camera lens. Go to the Cokin website (www.cokin.com) for more information.
