Photographing Night Street Traffic

  1. Make sure battery is at full (or close to full) charge
  2. Set camera exposure mode to “M”
  3. Set shutter speed to “bulb”
  4. Set f/stop to 22
  5. Set ISO to 200
  6. Attach camera to tripod, or other support, so camera is perfectly still
  7. Start with 20 second test exposure
  8. Review test exposure and if necessary, adjust f/stop for better exposure (lower f/stop for lighter image, higher f/stop for darker image)
  9. If highest possible f/stop still results in too much brightness, either shorten shutter time, or attach a polarizer or neutral density filter to lens
