According to a quick Google, there's a bit of variance depending on what kind of phone you have, but a lot of Android phones do have the ability to do it even better than iPhones in the default camera app. Additionally, both Android and iPhone have other camera apps you can download that will make it simpler if this is a thing one wants to play with.

On Android, what you're looking for is a way to adjust your shutter speed. Usually the first step is to look for a setting to change the camera controls to Manual, and then if you can find shutter speed it will usually be listed in terms of fraction or decimal of a second, and you can play around with how long works for you.

I think elitist is a bit unfair. Nobody here is looking down on anyone's entries. Several of the folks with more technical training have made a point of making themselves available to help if anyone wants to learn, but there have been no requirements to enter, and it's not uncommon for the winning photograph in any given month to not be one taken by someone with a high level of technical knowledge, because that's not the criteria. It's the photo that people like best, for whatever reason they like it.
(#5303004) Re: Novembers Image Is:
Posted by marcmandy on 6 Nov 2021 at 7:22AM

The idea here is to experiment and have fun. You actually don't even need a tripod, just a stationery surface to rest your camera or phone on for what could be as little as a 2 second exposure if the cars are moving fast. On an iPhone you can use the "live" setting while shooting moving vehicles and then use the long exposure option phones native photo options. Android likely has something similar, but I don't know that first-hand.

I'm not interested in the prize and have no chance of winning anyway. I enter the ones that interest me, for the fun of it and it's nice to win an occasional profile token. Don't be put off by some of the more experienced entrants. Personally I feel the rules of the competition make it somewhat elitist, as like last year only a handful of people are really in with a chance. I think too much emphasis is put on the grand prize and not enough for the monthly entries, it puts people off from entering and is therefore counter-productive


I won 2nd place for my last entry that was just a pile of junk I found in storage at work a couple of months back and snapped a shot with my phone, as I thought it would make a good entry for a relevant theme, if one came up.
I've a couple more I've snapped just waiting for the right theme, but I might not get the chance

It's not too difficult if you have a tripod. I've only got a mini tripod I picked up from ebay for around £1, but will give this one a go if I get time and find a good location. It's worth experimenting, you might surprise yourself with the results

I just made my entries to the 'minimalist' theme. I put in 3 that I liked for the theme. There was no stated limit, but I assume if they like something they'll only put up one of them. 

It will be interesting to see if any make the grade.

Posted by Scheherizade on 3 Oct 2021 at 6:40PM
Photography is not exactly a literal art, especially in this digital age. My mentor, and most every photography article I read says, once you know the rules, throw the rules out. Every photo challenge I'm in, unless it specifically states what you cannot do, it is your vision, your take on the theme. My original thought for this theme was a shot of one of my albums by The Doors. I still wish I'd had the time to set the shot up. I never stay within the lines, and I especially love those who play outside of the lines, too. Just wanted to share a little bit of why photography can be so subjective, and why many contests establish rules, or throw them out, right at the beginning. Grinning

Posted by marcmandy on 4 Jul 2021 at 10:18AM

On March 10th of 2019, we were in a hotel in Waikiki on our way to a month-long trip to New Zealand. By sheer chance, we were welcomed by this Japanese Nagaoka Fireworks Show celebrating the 25th anniversary of the annual Honolulu Festival which celebrates the cooperation and ethnic harmony between the people of Hawaii and the Pacific Rim region.


We were on a floor high enough to have the fireworks at almost eye level and were absolutely mesmerized. This show was on a par with, if not better than, our annual Macy's Fireworks display here in NYC. It was an extraordinary way to start our journey!

Got any old photos in the tank?

That may be what I end up going for, I haven't looked up what my area is doing for fireworks this year, and I'm not sure I want to deal with the people.

Fireworks are pretty much banned in the southwest. We're in the middle of one of the most severe heatwaves the northwest has ever seen. There's a fire in most every state, if you go out to the govt smoke haze map. The odds of any fireworks display going off are slim to none, in my neck of the woods. Not even being shot off at the minor league baseball stadium in town. Sad

That's not necessarily true Lil Moosie. Other countries celebrate this time of year with fireworks too. Canada celebrates Canada Day, originally called Dominion Day, on July 1st with fireworks.

Maybe try making it a little smaller again and try to reload.

Loading Pictures If your picture does not upload, please try adjusting the size to a smaller image. Resizing your photo to 400 x 400 to 600 or smaller, should be sufficient, but 1000 x 1000 in a small pixel format works nicely too.
