The main roundabout in downtown Hsinchu at the Eastern Gate of the city.
All photos in the Sogo Chute were taken with a Nikon D200 with a Nikkor 18-35mm lens on the 14th of December 2006. Settings: High ISO NR on, Low Exp NR on, Optimize Colors more vivid, ISO 800.
The photos that I took yesterday looked shitty while I was taking them, but turned out not too bad the day after I uploaded them onto my zooomr account.
Interesting view of the Sogo building in downtown Hsinchu.
I felt like the lighting was just too sucky in order to have good pictures, but since I had fiddled with the settings of my camera, they turned out pretty interesting. I shot about 75 photos last night, all in the same area, next to the Sogo building in downtown Hsinchu, Taiwan.
A different angle on the same Sogo building.
Sogo is like an upscale department store, just like Holt Renfrew and Sacks 5th avenue or Bloomingdales. Or Harrod’s in the UK.
Corner of Dongmen St. and Minzu Rd.
Here are the settings that I used last night. I found that when I use multiple exposures, they tend to be shifting toward a reddish tinge. Also, you have to be careful in your composition, because sometimes it ends up looking up too noisy. Noisy? Because of too many things in the photograph.
A view onto the Hsinchu Train Station from across the Sogo building.
I have kept the Focus Mode on Single instead of Continuous Servo AF.
A full frontal view of the Sogo building.
I haven’t played at all with the shutter speed since it gave bizarre results. I forgot how to modify the shutter speed when I am in the S mode.
A view fromt the small alleyway across from Sogo.
Optimizing colors is at More Vivid.
A 4 shot multi exposure picture shot in continuous mode to give a dragged effect.
ISO sensitivity is at 800, I might try 1600 tonight.
Another 4 shot multi exposure photo with too much going on.
High ISO NR is on as well as Long Exposure NR.
