Alex Goncalves says:

I like this tutorial because it gets to the point and covers the basics in a very polite manner while explaining even the simplest things.  Notmally youtube tutorial is some guy standing next to a camera talking BS and then ending the tutorial without even getting to the point.

Jonathan Wu says:

Long exposure are just bloody fun, & amazing. When you shooting something that will be for like 30 seconds, you have no idea how it will look exactly. Just have wait there for 30 seconds, and you will see something just amazing, or totally mess up ~_^ . I personally think it’s one of the best thing in photography, in not the best.

xkirtwoodx says:

Try a quicker shutter speed: The longer the shutter speed, the more the light is taken in for the photo. Or use a larger F-stop and keep it at 10 seconds

xkirtwoodx says:

It depends on the lighting, if you are shooting in city or urban areas with lighting, then use a fluorescent WB (or ~4000k), if not, then you really have to experiment with the colors you want to show in your photos. If you want warmer photos (more warm colors such as orange, red, yellow, etc.) use a higher K (presets such as “Cloudy” or “Shade”) and if you want cooler photos use a lower K (presets such as “Tungsten”). Even trying Auto WB would be a good idea if you can’t decide what you want (:

krimzonstudios says:

Great video!
One thing I have found (could be totally wrong) is that turning off image stabilization creates a sharper image. Could be just my lens or cheaper IS lenses, but if you’re having problems try that.

Please help, friend. When I take a photograph with even less the 10 second shutter speed, it seems like the sensor is drowned and I get overly bright pics…
