    A campfire, a sunset, and Kansas City.

    Those pillars make me think of a place in Fallout. Nicely done!

    You should go up the Liberty Memorial and take a stunning picture for me, Scotty. <3

    EDIT: Not of the Memorial, of the city.

    I've never really stopped by the Liberty Memorial despite having ridden in a car past it pretty often. I'll see what I can do. I've been trying to convince a friend or two to go on a photo adventure with me someday soon.

    Seriously, if you stand and look at the North side of the city...the view is stupidly gorgeous. You have to go if only because any self-respecting Kansas Citian would.

    The final picture was just me messing with longer shutter speeds just after I bought a remote for my camera. Using a pretty slow shutter speed, I moved my lit-up phone in the air to see if I could spell stuff in the air. Matt turned out successful, but I had trouble doing any other names for some reason.

    I submitted the statue one for a contest, but it didn't win. I either submitted this one or one of the Independence Square (it was a contest that shows different aspects of Independence, Missouri essentially). It was one of those contests where you had to have people vote on your picture to win if I remember right, and I never care enough to to spam all my friends with links to that sort of thing to get a lot of votes. I just did it as an excuse to walk around town and try to take interesting pictures.

    FYI, there are a lot of super cool things you can do with longer shutter speeds in the dark like your last one. I've been meaning to try to capture sparkler designs but I have no idea where I can get fireworks this time of year.

    It supposedly works well with glowsticks, too.

    par exemple

    I've seen a lot of pictures friends have done with sparklers and longer shutter speeds. I mainly just keep forgetting to bring my camera with me when I'm in situations with sparklers and such. I also don't have a very steady hand and would need to set up my tripod for those sorts of things which can be kind of hard to do when I am in a party setting or something where there happen to be sparklers. Eventually I'll mess around with that. I have messed around with longer shutter speeds and campfires, big fireworks, and just normal lights. I also like to occasionally just mess around with long shutter speeds to try to create "ghost" like pictures of people and such.

    These are not very good pictures from the Now, Now concert I went to a while back. Very poor lighting, a lack of equipment, etc. led to not very good pictures. My friend begged me to take pictures while I was there though, so I turned the ISO up real high and hoped for the best. They were at least good enough for him, haha.

    Taking photo's at concerts is so hard :0 Good job on getting them sharp with low lighting! I think they could improve from a bit of basic editing like a little color correction and a bit more contrast, if you have the software it might be worth a try!

    No software. These pictures were taken after I had access to my old college's Lightroom and Photoshop. Not that I was actually ever supposed to have access to that stuff since I wasn't in any photography classes, nor was photography a part of my major. Woops. I actually do mean to eventually return to these photos eventually to mess around with them.

    That bee picture is insanely awesome.
