Anyone dabble in night photos with their trucks? Took these while camping through Colorado and Utah last week.

Photos like these are my favorite to browse through. I wish I had the skill (or drive) to learn how to do it. But I’ll leave it to you guys and just repost them on the Instagram. ;)

Hoping to buy a mirrorless full frame soon to get into more photography. how do you set up ISO and all that to achieve these?
lowest ISO possible. I usually do 1600 or 3200. I used a lens that is f2/8 (lower the number the better), and a 30 second exposure. Piece of cake

Late on this thread but great shots!! I do photography in the side and the primary reason for my taco was to get to better places to shoot.

I always want to take these kind of shots, but my wife is the one who's good with the camera. I might have to give it a go next time we're out.

I was shooting on the Sony A6500 which was great but just bought the A7III full frame. It's awesome!! Hope you sell that thing soon.

This was shot on an A6500 when I was in DC for work. Great camera to start with.
