Sauce Bar

I recently was gifted an old tripod that is incredibly light-weight, so I've been messing around with long exposure shots. I can hand-hold a pretty slow shutter speed without a tripod but what I really wanted to try shooting in low light with a low ISO ('film' speed).

I was in a sort of restaurant - the kind you order then the blinky handheld device vibrates and you grab your grub. Not specifically planning to shoot there but I was waiting at my table and was captivated by the body language (there backs were to me) so I whipped out the tripod and shot this photo.


These were my settings: ISO 125, F-stop 4, Exposure 0.4 sec and it was shot at 8:45pm. I was surprised that the couple didn't move and was very pleased with the texture details in their clothing.
