Yes - it is distinctly dancing a mixture of The Twist and a 1920s Charleston ;))
Nice longer exposure here. I fail with these really, and need to learn to use the correct exposure, and hold the camera steady :))
Hi Amelia, you might be absolutely right there! :)
Thanks for the compliment on the longer exposure. I'm sure you can do those as well! Of course the main issue is to keep your camera steady at the relatively long exposure times. For true night photography you'll definitely need a tripod (or at least something rigid to rest your camera on), but for these 'blue hour' shots hand-held should be doable as well. Of course they will be prettier when using a tripod, but I can imagine that you don't want to carry one of those all day. :)
Then to make sure I'll end up with at least one acceptable shot, I always take at least 5 or more shots so that at least one of those is reasonably sharp. :)
Furthermore you should not zoom in too much (or preferably not at all), because that exaggerates little camera movements and typically also the low-light capabilities of your lens reduce while zooming in. And of course turn the flash off. For the exposure itself you can just let your camera do the work for you, your D40 is pretty good at that anyway. Well, that's about it. :) Just try it and I'm sure you'll end up with some really cool photographs! :)
Great shot of this funky building Tomas.
The headlights of the red car are super also.
