Photo-A-Day #2135

Tonight I took the Kodak Z950 outside to try a few night shots using the Night Mode on the camera. I set it on the frozen snow and set the timer for 10 seconds so I could position and shoot and give the camera a very stable footing for the shot. I like how the camera captured the lights on the tree plus the light down the street and the ones from the houses as well. For the Photo-A-Day shot I made sure to wait long enough I moved the camera.

I grabbed the camera too soon with this shot though.

    Drew,

    What is night mode doing? Does it fire the flash then leave the shutter open. I think this is typically how night modes work. Using the flash to freeze the subject then letting the background fill in with light as the shutter sits open. (dragging the shutter)

    The other option is to Open the shutter and fire the flash at the end of the exposure. This make sure that the flashed image come to the forefront.

    I guess you could also just be doing a long exposure. Do there manual state what night mode is doing? Just curious.

      Andy,

      I set it to night mode but also shut off the flash and made it a long exposure. I do like the use of the flash at the end, a great way to get that same look but with a well lit subject up front. Sort of getting two exposures in one.
