Tripod is a must, or use a curb, wall or other flat surface the camera can be set on. If its a shitty camera, don't plan on getting super night shots. Definitely take it off auto, put it in night mode if available, and adjust the white balance if possible. But you get no where unless the picture isn't focused and sharp, so get the tripod.

yea....

its a couple things... use tripod, timer is real good to use, because even if u have a tripod, once u hit that botton u still move the camera ever so slightly and that makes it blurry.


as for the lighting
use night mode, and i usually use the cloud setting *(sony) it captures colors the best, and then mess with ur shurtter timming, its usually setting that u'll see "ev" - and + the higher number in + the longer the shutter is going to stay open and the more light its keeps.... and oposite with the - just keep practicing......

Tripod, or curb/timer, lower your exposure time and maybe pan out a bit. Looks like you're getting an awful lot of lens flare? Cheap cam? Really grainy too, so lower the ISO value.

Try going under a street light, that way the camera can meter the ambient light from that and every single light on the car won't come out as a halo of light.

well heres something that may help u a lil, its just pics, but its to show u that it takes time.... by no means am i a good photographer, but i think that im starting to get alot of it down and keep on learning with my lil pos camera, but i do plan on getting a new cam but i have lots more to learn before i spend the money on a d70 or dig reb or even a d50..... but again it takes time, use a tripod try ur hardest to have be to close to the light, and have light facing the object (with the source of lighting being behind you) and practice practice practice

i just showed the links because its a lot of pics and dont want the 56kerz to suuufffuruxors


here are some pics, they arent in the order that tried to make them, from then to now, but u can kinda tell... i had to go waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back dayam good ol stocknezz haha.

but lights in general are hard as hell to contain, specially when u dont have a real good camera, facing light at night with a cheaper camera is almost always gonna have a bad glare.

Thanks for the help. I will try this when I get another chance. And the camera is a HP 5.1mp digital camera.

most models have a night mode to let more light, but it looks like the obvious problem is you shook the camera.

When I take pictures it waits a second and then makes the camera sound. And when I was taking those at night, it would take like 15 seconds before it took the picture, I think it was because it was trying to focus.
