Lake Tahoe Photography | Nikon D3s Night Shots

On my last night at Lake Tahoe, we decided to take Lola on a nice stroll.  It was a gorgeous night and the moon was FULL!  Here are some shots taken hand held taken at a really high ISO.  For the skeptics, I had two witnesses, my friend Tiffany and her husband Ly, saw me take these shots handheld.  Let me know what you think!!!

*****Note*****I want to add that none of these pictures has NOT been retouched or altered and they were all taken at around 10:30pm.  It was pitch black.  The only thing that was lit was the moon and the lights lighting up the pier.  Other than that, it was really dark.

Image below was shot handheld at 1/13 sec at f/2/0 ISO 2500

Image below was taken handheld at 1/6 sec at f/2.0 ISO2500

Image below was taken handheld at 1/8 sec at f/ 2.0 ISO 3200

Image below was shot handheld at 1/6 sec at f/2.0 ISO 25600.  I just wanted you to see how high I took it this evening and it’s a tiny bit grainy yes, but overall pretty impressive!  Any higher than ISO 25600 would’ve been way too bright.  Did I mentioned that this was handheld!!!!!  Meaning without a tripod!!!
