Awesome, what lens, shutterspeed, aperture, ISO, and what if any filter did you use? That looks great. Was there any touchups done?

Nice. Bounce flash is your friend.

Yup, that is one of the main reasons I avoided the SB-400, no way to adjust the angles.

Nope the photo is the photo.

I used the 18-200mm lens mine came with set at 5 sec at f/5.3, ISO-100, 90mm.

I would like to say I'm some kind of photography genus...but that photo was pretty much an accident, haha.

Awesome, with the 5 sec exposure, I assume you we're using a tripod. If so, what kind do you have, I want to get one that can easily hold my camera with flash.

Just some old crappy one my dad had lying around.

There are lots of good tripods out there, just find one you like and meets your needs.

I am still trying to talk myself out of a Gitzo tripod because they are stupidly overpriced...like as much as my camera lol.

Oh, and a remote shutter release is a must for long exposures...

Well, if we're doing night scenes... (OK, not a Nikon but I thought these were cool pics)

The Okie Corral

The Okie Corral

The Okie Corral

All 3 are taken outside my house with a Canon 5D Mkiii, 24-105 f/4L IS lens, tripod. All were f/4, 25 sec exposure, ISO 2500, 1st two 24mm, 3rd 32mm, no touchup/photoshop/whatever.

I'd like to do longer exposures (cool to see all the stars and the different colors) but as you can see I'm already getting star trails. I could make or buy a tracking mount, but maybe this summer. We'll see. Still learning.

The key is being in a spot that is very dark and playing with the shutter speed. Many bad photos that night and very few good ones.

One of the great things about digital - you get to see right away which is which, and can refine your technique to get more of the latter.

Exactly

I ended up buying a tablet so I could see my mistakes on a bigger screen while still on site.
