I'm a beginner with my first camera (sony nex6 mirrorless). I was trying my first few night shots Using the kit lens but I wasn't able to find a way to take sharp images. I've done the following:
- Used a tripod
- Turned off stabilization
- Remote shutter release
- Taken at ISO100
- I'm on stable ground unless the high rise building itself is shaking
- Tried taking it at f/8 and f/5.6. It's around the same except just darker.
I guess two questions:
- Am I using taking the photo correctly (exposure etc)?
- What kind of quality should I be expecting from this set of gear?
