From my last post, you may remember that I don’t carry a tripod with me when I travel, which makes night photography very difficult. For this image, I set my camera on a stone fence facing Victoria’s Inner Harbour and played around with some settings and took some test shots. Again, this situation was not ideal since the surface my camera was resting on was rocky, so I wasn’t able to use a longer exposure, and my composition choices were limited. However, using what was available to stabilize the camera did help.
