- Use a camera with a high sensor
- put it on Manual mode
- start with these settings:
- 1600 ISO (then play around here)
- 15 seconds (then here)
- turn off the noise reduction (unless you have a nice Nikon)
- set it on the highest aperture possible for the lens (the lowest)...
- use RAW - so that you can go back and change the exposure compensation, contrast, and white balance later on your computer.
- use a remote release, or just set a 2 second timer on your camera.
- Carry around a strong flashlight to "paint your subjects"
- Another tip... for night photography timelapse on your NEX-5... is to just set it on continuous shot... then use a rubber band to hold down the shutter... all night. You can get a decent timelapse using this easy trick.
