The London Eye, The Singapore Flyer, Tokyo’s Big O are some of the fixed ferris wheels around the world which have also been landmarks representing the cities they’re installed in. Vienna also has a Giant Wheel (Riesenrad) that can be found at the Praterstern, an amusement park at the city’s second district.
Within the amusement park is a smaller ferris wheel – a regular one, I say regular because it’s small compared to the 64.75m-high Riesenrad.
Bulb Exposure. Or brief exposure or long exposure, is that method in photography when one let the shutter remains open so long by holding down the shutter release. That’s the B on your mode dial.
This shot was taken at 6:27 PM, on already dark winter surrounding. Here’s the exif data according to Flickr. (Shot with a fisheye lens.)
|Camera||Canon EOS 5D Mark II|
|Focal Length||50 mm|
|Exposure Bias||0 EV|
|Flash||Off, Did not fire|
In order for one to capture images at night, the B setting is often abused…I mean used. Here are some of the things to consider when taking photos on a B setting.
1. If you have a wide angle lens, the better. It gives your photo an exaggerated depth.
2. Use a tripod as much as possible and a cable release or use the self-timer to eliminate camera shake.
3. Use an ISO of 100 to keep noise lessened.
4. Don’t be afraid to experiment on the length of time you will keep the shutter open. It will result differently so practice.
