I think there’s another problem with my camera. I’m not educated in the ways of DSLR, but if I were a guessing man – and I am – I would guess it’s an issue with the flash card. I would LOOOOOVE some input from a professional photographer – please – to tell me what ails me this time. Observe closely.
I went for a walk with the pooch the other night. I took my camera and the small tripod and set about taking some simple time exposures. The first few were fine – like this:
But later in the walk I started to get this:
Do you see the problem? It’s all those little dots in the sky – they’re not stars, you know. When I first saw them that’s what I thought too: “Cool,” I said, “I got a starry night!” But no. Look closely and you’ll see those dots are all different colours, and they’re all over the place. You can see them wherever the image is dark. Click on the image to see it full-screen.
Here’s another example:
I added a gradient parallel to the road and within that gradient you can see an effect that’s a little like pixie dust. Believe me, that might be cool in an app treatment, but it’s not by design.
So, I think it’s the flash card. Am I right? Is the flash card finally coming apart on me?
Photographers, please help.
