Awesome, thanks +Michael Herman
! I arrived at the shutter speed settings through trial and error…nice to know I arrived at something sensible. I also started at ISO 1600 and kept adjusting it down, I thnk as far as 200. But perhaps the camera was overriding my ISO settings.
As for the event…it was OK, but not earth shattering. They're building a big clock. Which is pretty cool, I guess, if you're into time and all that jazz.
