We picked up an inexpensive waterproof camera a while back. It’s fun to play around with and I’ve been able to get a few decent shots with it. Here’s one of the palm trees around the pool where we stay in Palm Desert, CA.
Camera: Nikon COOLPIX S32, Exposure Time: 1/1600, Aperture: f/3.3, ISO: 125, Focal Length: 4.1mm
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
Here’s the image I used for the background of my blog. It was taken in Palm Springs in November. I set the camera up on my tripod out on the balcony. Once I had a good exposure setting for a 30 second exposure, I used my wired remote trigger to keep taking shots continuously for almost an hour. In total, I ended up with 111 shots, which I then painstakingly merged together to get the resulting star-trail shot. It took a lot longer than usual because I wanted to remove all the light trails from the many airplanes that went by during that time, which was a LOT!
