Brisbane at Night – A Photographic Record
Brisbane came of age during Expo 88 and is now a vibrant city. As night falls you can head out to Kangaroo Point and the cliffs near the city to capture the river and the lights.
The images here are all from a Canon G3 (4MP) on a Manfrotto tripod on manual exposure. Images are up to 30 second exposures as you can see from the distances boats and cars are travelling during the shots.
I try not to use the minimum f-stop (in this case f2.0) at night as it leads to flare. Most of the shots were up to 2 stops overexposed. White balance is AUTO and the the ISO is set manually to 50.
