Best "unique" photo you've taken of a ship.


Recommended Posts

½ sec.

 

Long exposures can be fun.

 

Here's one on the Inside Passage taken at 13 sec. - f/4 - ISO200

(Bright glare is the moon.)

Here's a handheld ½ sec. shot of the jogging track on the Mercury just before sunrise.

Photo from the QM2, I think it was leaving St Vincent at the time, it was from our 2005 Xmas cruise. :)

 

I've find the QM2 such a great Cruise Liner (ship) to photo.

OK, I just got a new camera and would love to know how to do something like this on it. I have yet to play with all the manual settings to figure it all out. Anyone have any general tips to do this???? Is it just the shutter speed or is there more to it??

Pretty much shutter speed + hold it really still!;)

 

Check out the low light photography class on this forum. It may help with steadiness tips and explain some exposure mysteries:

Have fun with the new camera!

First cruise of the year to Alaska - you have to be prepared for rain! And rain it did!

 

This is just a fun photo I took so we'd remember how much rain we got on this trip. We were glad we brought our full rain suits, other folks hadn't so Ketchikan merchants made a small fortune selling rain clothes.

Nice picture Dave. Thought that I would add one from the other side of those rocks. Well attended sail-away party on the top decks of the Oceana. The QM2 had just pulled out from the spot occupied by Ocean Village in your photo.
