Default Bluegrass in my Backyard

I have been quite busy lately with school, so have not had nearly as much time as I would like playing with my camera. Last weekend, a friend of ours brought her band friends over, and we had a cookout in my back yard. The light in these photos is all from a streetlight in our yard and the fire pit. I would like your opinion on them, thanks!

of course, what would a cook out be without s'mores?

I like them, Vole.
They do have that old 70's film look to them.
Looks like you know how to have fun!

Hi Vole,

I like them, but my preference would probably be to bump the ISO to get less motion blur and put up with the noise.

To record scenes like this, noise is really irrelevant, IMO. You don't expect to get great detail or need good color range accuracy, and I usually prefer more a steady pic to one with motion blur, but that's me . . . 1/4 sec at ISO 400 would only give you 1/16 at ISO 1600, but anything slower than 1/10 just seems like I'm holding each exposure forever. . .and shooting at 35-60 mm, you'd be well within SR's capability.

Nonetheless, you did very well at 1/4 sec -- it's really hard to hold any FL for such a long exposure. . .

Nice work!

Scott

I like them too. They bring back memories of some great summer evenings many years ago.

Reminds me of camping trips with my church groups in the early 70's. Guitars and all. I do agree with Scott, though. It would be nicer if they weren't quite so blurry.

Nice images for what you had, though.
