I went for a walk last night by myself to see the lights on the nearby streets. I loved taking these pictures. It was experimental and fun. And since I was alone for a few minutes, it was quiet.
This is what I did. I set the camera on manual and just fooled around with the exposure. These are ISO 640 and 400 ~ 1/60 of a second ~ f/ 1.4 and 1.6. The middle one is 1.6. (I meant for them all to be 1.4 but changed the aperture by mistake.) I turned auto focus off and made the lights blurry. Then I just tried different things. It made me look at the lights in a new way.
