03/26/10 102 W, 1 I - + 4 - 11 Blur

Here's another rejected photo from Tuesday night's major fire. This one's simply blurry. What happened? The level of light was lower, so the shutter closed slower. This allows more light to enter the camera. It also can cause blurring, from camera shake. Under normal circumstances, the camera is held as still as possible. Even braced against your face, and with your breath held for maximum effect. On scene, things move a little faster. Would a monopod or tripod help with stabilization? You betcha, though they're awfully unwieldy if you're moving around a lot. More photography lessons later. Click to enlarge.
