[img]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Daniel%20Bolton/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Saved%20to%20C.D.%20Photo's/Saved%20to%20C.D.%20Photo's%20028.jpg[/img] Last night when I was driving home at twilight I passed a lake shrouded in fog. I stopped and snapped several photo's, some black and white, and some color. The lake was very dark, and the fog not much brighter, but the shots came out like it was nearly daylight. I checked the pictures in the viewfinder before I left and they seemed to come out nicely, or I would have taken more. I was disappointed when I downloaded them on the computer.

Most of the shots came out blurry, eventhoughI used the monopod(I know I need a tripod). Of the shots I didn't delete only a few were acceptable. My wife likes them, but she's not critical. What steps can I take to improve if I'm in this position again? I took some foggy shots earlier in the day and they came out nicely.

low light shots are 99.9% of the time a going to come out blurry if no tripod is used or flash.

with a tripod and a little practice with aperture values and shutter speeds you can take nice low light shots.this is some thing that i try to do,i will take test using various settings and then when i download them onto the computer i will look at each one of them and keep the best ones..

here is a shot i took at 6:30 am here in Florida,i took it handheld at a faster shutter speed which made the photo under exposed so i used photoshop to increase the gamma and contract.i think it came out ok....

camera used : panasonic fz 20.
