    Yeah my tripod is not real stable. I'll have to figure out that other stuff and nail it on one of these.

    It looks like I forgot to put on my 3-d glasses

    I wonder if the timer will take all three shots or one at a time? It was kind of weird standing there with my finger on the button waiting for the exposure to end and the next one to begin and I'm sure I was shaking the thing all over the place.

    It was pretty cool that Caddy was parked there in the red zone.

    Yeah it's pretty cool. Thanks again for all the help. I'll get it right eventually. I had the tripod in the street and get a lot of people asking what the **** I'm taking pics of.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the importance of really locking down on your tripod during these exposures.

    If your camera has a mirror lock-up, use it. And for all of my shots I shoot in self-timer mode so my hands are completely off and unable to move the camera when exposing. That adds another 10 seconds to my already laborious process, but it makes the difference.

    Looks like your dialing it in though. What do you think?
    I HIGHLY recommend shutter release cables (30D is here). I have the same one, works well, I cut the cord in half, and put in 1/8" stereo plugs (male on the camera side, female on the other) so if I want I can extend it with a headphone extension cable, or trigger it with something like a pocket wizard. Unfortunately, this is one accessory where paying the $50 for the Canon version is worth it, as the generics can be pretty cheesy and break quickly.

    As for the image, looking good! I would echo everything PM said, but also throw in that I might like to see it taken a bit earlier in the evening so the sky isn't so dark, but I like how the neon is looking.

    Inspired by your quest for neon, I shot this one last night of a Chinese dress shop that, every time I pass by it a night, reminds me of the brothels in Amsterdam. I call it "Betrothel".



    Can't wait to see more of your stuff.

    For the shutter, if you are in almost anything but Manual or B, you only need to tap the shutter and it will stay open for as long as the camera thinks it needs to. If you use the timer, it will do all exposures in one go (at least on the 5D). However, if you have the mirror lockup custom function set, the timer changes from 10 seconds to 2 seconds, and you need one shutter push to lock up the mirror and it fires the shutter 2 seconds later, and you have to do that for each exposure of the AEB.

    Spot on, Sam. I had an infrared remote that was very helpful when I started playing around with this. However, it ended up under the grinding tires of a Big Wheel when it apparently fell out of my bag one day. Has not worked consistently since.

    Yeah, earlier would be good. I'll practice on some timer shots before I have to perform it in the streets.

    Put a tip-hat down on the ground and tell everyone you are doing a performance art piece about the omnipresent media and its effects on an image conscious society. Probably make a few bucks.

    So, I have still been trying to decide which lens to rent to take to Red Bull, and in doing my research, I came across something that made me nauseated and want to cry all at the same time:



    Full translated page here, from what I can make of it, someone tossed the photog the camera as some event was about to start, but it might have also been mounted on a tripod? Anyway, no fun at all with 1DMkIII and a 500mm f/4.0 IS, that is about $10,000 down the drain.

    I think that image convinced me I should go with the measly by comparison 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 zoom and keep it simple (and I would have to have picked up a Wimberly mount if I wanted to use the 500mm or the 600mm, which is a little more than I want to get into)
