You asked the same question earlier on November 23. That question was closed as a duplicate of photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1061/…

possible duplicate of astrophotography with Nikon D3300 is possible?

comment How can I get good motion shots (long exposure) of the sea in daylight?
At face value the question looks the same, but the earlier question is concerned with allowing details of the moving objects to show up. This question is concerned with blending the moving objects to eliminate specific details.

comment How to shoot a 220 yard photo with an 18-135mm lens
Your lens is just not capable of that, at least not at 200 yards. You need to either get much closer or use a much longer lens.

comment Will a charger for Canon 60D batteries work on 40D batteries?
The true upgrade for the 40D/50D was the 7D. The 60D was a mixed bag. The 70D recovered most of what was lost in the xxD line.

Kobre, Kenneth. "Photojournalism: The Professionals' Approach (Sixth Edition)" ©2008 Elsevier, Inc. It is pretty much the "standard text" for most undergraduate photojournalism courses on America's college campuses.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
@dpollitt The answers are the same, though. There are no special laws (criminal or civil) in the U.S. that govern the photographing of children in public places that don't also apply to photographing anyone else that may be in that same public space.

comment Photography in public places: Is it allowed or needs permission
Ruling after ruling in U.S. Courts has established that private property open to the public, such as a shopping center or mall, is not considered public property in terms of taking photographs without permission. If there are "No photography" signs posted (even if they are only posted, say, in the mall office) and you take photos there without permission you may be charged with trespassing. The same holds true if you are asked by those in charge of the property to stop or leave and you continue to take photos.

See the section of this answer that begins, "Places that are privately owned but open to the public are a little more restrictive..." photo.stackexchange.com/a/35131/15871

comment How do I take a “projector output” photo, showing the beam from my car's headlights?
And if the shutter speed is between about 1/100 second and 1 second also use mirror lockup and a wired shutter release if your camera offers these features.

comment How to adjust colours displayed on MacBook Pro?
The ISO standard, as explained by X-Rite, a company that produces hardware and software used for color calibration, is to view prints in light that is at D50 (full spectrum centered at 5,000K) in terms of color temperature. In terms of intensity, around 2,000 lux (roughly equivalent to an overcast day) should be used for color decisions and judging (2000lux +/-500lux is within the standard, but +/- 250 is preferred), but intensity levels as low as around 800 lux may need to be used to observe fine differences in tonal qualities. Even 800 lux is not what I would consider "quite dim".

comment Why do digital cameras not have an iso rating?
If you want the camera to amplify the signal you need to raise the ISO setting. Shooting a scene at an exposure value appropriate for using ISO 1600 when the camera is set to ISO 100 will result in 4 stops of underexposure.

comment What determines the sharp parts in an image: the DoF or the focus point?
If you feel the need to down vote an answer, a suggestion as to how the answer might be improved or what information in the answer is incorrect would be helpful.

comment What are the appropriate lenses for concert photography
If the "yellow" is killing all of the features of the artists faces, then your exposure is too high. Either increase your shutter speed or f/number or decrease the ISO.

OK, all Canon cameras with Live View except the 40D, the 1D Mark III, and the 1Ds Mark III (the first Canon cameras to incorporate Live View).

When this answer was written the 7D Mark II had not been publicly announced, much less released. That DPReview article was posted this month, seven months later.
