This is a video card inside an oven that looks like having a techno party?!? Confused? Yeah, me too! That is what 3 1/2 hours of traffic can do to you.
Tonight’s traffic was one of the worst traffic for me in a long time… It rained heavily and as usual, the streets are flooded… That I assume was the cause of traffic, but, on my 3 1/2 hour drive home, I didn’t see any flood ?!? Still confused? Same here.
Anyway, this technique is often times called “dragging the shutter”. I needed more ambient light to penetrate inside the oven so it can be properly exposed, thus requiring a longer shutter speed.
I need to get some sleep now 🙂
