    Oooh that’s interesting that they’ve matched the elephant to the backdrop. Hope that you’ve been having a good weekend!

    OOh, you were in Vegas?!

      Yeah I was! For Seoulbeats :)

        Ooh, so cool!  For how long. That is exciting (for me) because it was almost like you were within touchable distance to me.  Pretend that didn’t sound creepy.

        Also, can we talk about how you took those great photos in the dark? Can you tell me what specs you used?  Did you have a tripod handy?  How do they look so great and not grainy?!

          I stayed in Vegas for 5 days-ish around Thanksgiving time. Vegas was alright.

          As for the shots — I cheat and I use flash in the dark. That’s the only way these things turn out okay. And make sure there’s not an object in your field of vision that will bounce off the light that comes out of your camera. How do I explain this … like in the Eiffel Tower shot, there was actually a lamp pole that was just in the shot that kept reflecting the flash that came off the camera. You have to move around so that that’s not in your shot or else it’ll affect the shot and how the objects that you’re actually trying to shoot will look in the final product.

            !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you!  You have changed the way I take pictures in the dark, my friend!  This is awesome advice.  I always took pics without flash, whilst trying to be as humanly still as possible and there was always camera shake.

              Yeah I know what you mean about not taking photos with flash in the dark. Sometimes in shots that have a lot of surfaces (like, for example, taking a photo of food at a restaurant where you’re seated outside at night) the photos won’t look at “clean,” but shots where you photo off into the distance at objects that are pretty far off (like the Eiffel Tower), the night looks actually like the night and like you’re just observing it through your own eyes as opposed to through the lens of a flashy camera, y’know?
