New Tripod

One of the gifts I received for Christmas was a tripod. (Thanks Patricia!) All of the photos in this post were taken using a tripod and a wireless remote. I bought a wireless remote from B&H to prevent shutter release vibrations from my heavy ungraceful finger. It’s been great taking photos on demand. Having a tripod is opening up some creative juices and I look forward to using it more in the future. I also like shooting night shots with a low ISO. No graininess. Enjoy the night time, low light goodness!

That's the 7 local train whizzing by at 46th/Bliss Street.

This is the first photo I took using the tripod. You can't tell, but I took it in really low light.

Brooklyn bridge at night. I like how the Empire State building is in the background.

I've always wanted to try shooting flowing water with a slow shutter speed. Too bad the water is from the east river.

Ironically, I went inside the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory to warm up.

Another classic tripod shot. This is the Brooklyn Queens Expressway taken from the promenade.

I'm amazed sharpness a huge depth of field creates.
