Hold on, wouldn't an all-dark wheel shorten the exposure? I'd figure you'd want a long exposure for the moonlight?
Oh no! Basically the moon’s light is intensified when viewed through a telescope. I had to shorten it so not to over expose the image too much.
So good! Where did you get the planters?
My parents live on a very steep hill in a mountain neighborhood, one night they had a freeze over like this where you literally couldn't find a single non-icy patch. My wife and I stayed the night after parking our car at the top of the hill. The next day my dad calls me crying laughing as he watched his security tape of us going ten foot up the hill, sliding twenty back down, my dog giving up on us and literally ripping the leash from my hands like a chew toy (He's over half my weight) and making his way up the hill without us, my wife losing her bags as I try to stop them from continuing down the slope as I lie prone trying to use my nails to stop the slide. I crawled up people's lawns to get to the car. Fuck that day.
Edit: I'll ask my dad if he still has the video tomorrow when he wakes up for all you sick people wanting to watch my misery.
Edit 2: Thank you all for fucking my inbox with RemindMe!'s, no really, I love not being able to find a single reply to any other thread I want to discuss, it's great. Only 18 new messages since I started writing this edit! Damn you, reddit.
Final edit/update: sighhhhh , I'm sorry my friends, this was my dad's reply this morning, sorry to disappoint, though not really, I am almost glad you all didn't see my misery in real time, but again, sorry for the disappointment, I'll look through his computer next time I'm over there to see if I can find It myself and post it, but he thinks he deleted it :/
RemindMe! 2 days
This was taking using a tripod and a piece a cardboard to block the light sensor. The light and dark settings were set on the lightest setting. I pushed the shutter button and let go, the camera did the rest. It took a little over 10 seconds before the camera ejected the picture.
What amazes me about the picture is how clear and crisp the pine needles are and the crimping along the metal on top of the ornament.
Would love to know more about the "rewiring" part. I see old Land cameras around all the time for cheap, but have no idea how to get them working again.
