Since I have been very limited in my travels lately, due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances, I have been shooting a lot of photos within a few blocks of my house, and honestly, I feel like I've gotten some really good photos. It has also forced me to play around with different types of shots because I am shooting the same areas multiple times. I've done a good bit of nighttime photography which has allowed me to learn more about what works and what doesn't. I have learned that it is ok to shoot with my aperture turned all the way down to f22 when it's dark to get some nice starburst effects with lights (which you can get with an aperture setting of at least f16). It's given me some good nighttime photos such as this one from Sally Kate Winters Park in downtown West Point.
