Chinese Lantern Festival last night on display.

Greetings Fellow Members,

We wanted to inform the masses that this weekend is the last nights for the Chinese Lantern Festival at Fairpark to be on display.  They had extended this event from over the Thanksgiving/Christmas Holidays to coincide with the Chinese New Year.  So if you missed it over the Holidays then this is the perfect time to catch it again.

We already had our official Field Trip to this event.  Thus, this announcement is just for your information purposes.  Here is a link to their web site for more information...

For anyone who will be going and needs some pointers, here are a few suggestions...

  • Bring a Tripod. You will need the stability for sharper images.
  • You will need to use Manual Mode on your camera system and here are the settings that I use...
  • ISO = 200 ( You'll want to use low ISO settings to reduce digital noise.)
  • Aperture = F16 (You want to use a small aperture to get great depth-of-field and sharpness).
  • Shutter Speed = 1 full second or longer. (The longer shutter speed is a by-product of low ISO and small aperture settings.  Thus, is why you need a Tripod.)

Afterwards, there will be some Post Processing editing to enhance the images.  We will post an editing techniques topic at a later date.

Good Luck and have fun.
