Skywatch Friday: Twilight Sky

DSC_0127

First experiment with long exposure and the camera's LiveView option. LiveView doesn't use the mirror, rather it uses just the sensor through the lens also used when doing video, although its one drawback as it uses the battery power more. Handy with ND and IR dark filters, although its still adviseable to cover the viewfinder either with the cap provided, black card or your hand to prevent light leakage.

Shot at 4 seconds with the self-timer(2seconds)in LiveView on a Slik U6000 Tripod, F8 at ISO 100.

I have no idea what live view is, but is a nice composition. I always carry a spare battery with me.
