PHOTO OF THE DAY: Night of Swirling Lights in Half Moon Bay

This vortex of light is another view of the Chamarita carnival that lit up Main St. earlier this month.

The ferris wheel blurs into another dimension at the Chamarita carnival put on by the I.D.E.S. Society on June 11 and 12 in Half Moon Bay.

Great picture. Like the how-to information. Can I shoot something similar with my Cannon G12?

Thanks Mom. Sure you can. First, find a carnival. Next put your camera on a tripod. Then, place the camera in Manual Mode, setting the aperture to F/8 and experimenting with different shutter speeds. Or you can set the G12 to Fireworks mode (see pages 62 and 64 in the manual). The camera will automatically switch to longer shutter speeds. You still need to keep the camera still with a tripod or on a fence post. Watch out for people tripping over your tripod and stay away from the cotton candy, it will make your camera sticky.
