    beam shots

    Can anyone give me some advice on camera setup for shooting beam shots? I have a Nikon Coolpix 4600. The shots I took on the trail were pretty blurry. I did figure out how to turn off the flash today, so that's a start.
    Thanks

    Use a tripod, or set it on a steady surface. That's the best advice I can give you, that and use the 10 second timer so you don't inadvertantly shake the camera when pressing the shutter button. I don't know your camera so I can't tell you what to set it to, but a lot of point and shoot cameras have manual modes accessible through the menus. Manual mode ensures that you have the same exposer set for each shot, thus making good photos for comparison. For example, when shooting a dim light, the camera will expose logner, making it look more bright, that shooting a bright light, that would expose less- making them look more even.
