Ive been taking photos for over 2 years now and feel I'm being held back in progressing. Maybe by my Nikon D3200. I have a good selection of nice lenses (IMHO), Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4, Tokina 11-16mm F2.8, Nikon 300mm F4 prime, Nikon 35mm F1.8 prime, which all suit my needs. I recently travelled 280 miles for a night shoot of aircraft and cars and was hoping to capture some stunning images. I was tripod mounted, and kept the F-stop as wide as possible without losing too much DOF. I also stuck to ISO 100. I didn't want noisy shots. Although I'm quite happy with the results, I noticed that people around me were taking shots super quick, and even hand held, in dusk light and night darkness. I was in awe of these folk and was wondering why my camera was giving me multiple second shots. There were staged shots with pilots in the foreground, and fog machines in the background. These were all spoilt by the long exposures. So after all that waffle, what was letting me down? Was it my technique or was it the limitations of my camera? Here are a couple of examples straight out of the camera.
