However, I started reading Scott Kelby's book, "Digital Photography" (volume 1). In the first few pages he talked about shooting from a tripod, maximum aperture, etc. As a result, I wanted to try my hand (again) at some night photography and I really liked the blue lights that our Holiday Inn Express had on to light up parts of the building. Take a look.
