Got the WLAN working!

pool by nightMan, I don’t know what it was those first couple of days, but it’s working now and I’m pleased as punch. We got here on Saturday with (in retrospect) only a minor oh-crap moment thanks to United and American Airlines, but all was well when we got through customs and saw our pals waiting for us.

It’s really, really good to be back here. More later!

    dude that photo is gorgeous…
    and now i’m REALLY jealous.
    but i am really glad you’re having a good trip – not that i ever mind reading the epic reports about the other travels, but it’s nice that this one is going so well.

    Thanks! That’s thanks to my Olympus E-500 with a 20 second exposure at f/6.3 and a 14mm focal length. Oh, and a cheapo tripod I bought a couple months ago, or a Gorilla pod I got from my sister for my birthday this past week (I forget which I used).

    so long as it’s stable, cheapo’s pretty good, and so much lighter to haul around than mine.
    i think what i really like about the photo is the variety of colors. i’ve seen that composition before but the colors, lights and shadows make it so much more interesting.
    when you shoot in low light like this, with long exposures, do you use the timer? i have a remote on mine, so i don’t have to worry about camera shake when i press the shutter. yes, you can press it gently enough most of the time…
    one of my students is doing a project shooting in low light, and some cool shots have come of this, but many were blurry. i figured out it was from camera shake, even on the tripod. we looked at the camera together and i discovered that it has both a 12sec and 2sec timer – helped a lot.

    Yes, I do — a 2-second timer usually.

    Hmm, I can’t. I’ve *seen* camera shake from the shutter opening. Fortunately, my camera comes with a feature called “anti-shock” which works quite well. When it’s on, it opens the shutter first and waits up to 6 seconds (I specify the delay in one-second intervals) before activating the sensor and starting the exposure. That’s how I did these shots, too.

What's your take on it?
