London: 13-Jan-2007

London Skyline

Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Meeting with a friend, touring the National Gallery, exploring the Camden street markets, and attending a dinner party.

  2. Cool photo. All my night time photos like this come out crap. It’d be nice for photographic newbies such as myself if you posted a one-line explanation of what it took to get a shot to work :)

    The Turkey photos are great too. And irritating since I visited most of the same places but my shots are nowhere near as good!

  3. Lee,

    I used my mini tripod for this shot. Otherwise, it would have been a hopeless blur. The shutter speed was 1/2 second.

    The same technique was essential for most of the indoor stuff in Turkey. If your shutter speed is not faster than 1/(the focal length of the lens you are using), you will get photos marred by camera shake.
