Gonna whore up some pics I took tonight on here, so you are forewarned! lol
I don't have a very good camera (3 year old Canon PowerShot A590), and even less skill, but this is what I came up with tonight just driving around. -Side note: NH kids are too well behaved! I couldn't find a Graffiti wall anywhere in Nashua, Milford, or Manchester!- Anyways, I had the camera set to "P" (program) in some shots and the night setting in others with an ISO of 80 and shutter set to 2+, which was as much as I could get it. I used a tripod. I tried to frame some interesting shots and turn the tire the right way, but I do see quite a few mistakes on my part. I do think I found the low-light limit of this camera though. I took about 100 shots, and of those, these 14 came out pretty decent. They are in chronological order. I don't know if I improved any or not, but it's the best I could do with what I got and what little scenery I could find. These are all "untouched" as I have no idea where to even start with photoshop!
So here ya go. LMK what ya think!
Thanks for looking. I had fun!

Not bad- I find it easier to use the self timer so you don't need to worry about the tripod still jiggling from when you hit the button on the camera...I like using the regular Shutter Speed Priority (Tv) setting when I take pics like this as well
