How the picture at Petra by Night was clicked: It was dark and only light was the one coming from candles in the brown paper bags. I had a small Gorilla Pad that I kept stable on a table top and sat in a corner to avoid all the people watching the show, hence you see a side view of the Treasury or Al Khazneh .
Here is the exif data for the picture
Camera: Camera: Nikon D 7000,
Aperture: F /18 (ideally I should have used around F /12-16 but then I was getting too bright as I wanted a real long exposure)
Shutter Speed: 30 Seconds, hence the need for the tripod / gorilla pod
ISO – 400 (Now after looking at picture I would have used ISO 200 to get less grain as it is a long exposure shot)
Focal Length: 18 mm
The image was processed using Adobe Lightroom 4. 3
I promise that I will not sell, rent, or donate your email to anybody
