A Tiny Tradeoff

Of course, traveling light (photographically speaking) doesn't work for everyone in every situation. It had some limitations, like when I was trying to capture a long exposure in the late afternoon and maxed out my minimum aperture at f/8—which meant that we had to relax at the rooftop café for an extra hour or so while we waited for the light to fade before we could get the long exposure we wanted (seen in Figure 11). But with Moroccan mint tea on the menu, we were happy to oblige!

Figure 11 The minimum aperture on our compact camera was only f/8, making it difficult to create a long exposure during the day. To compensate, we simply waited for the light to fade, and then captured this half-second exposure at dusk.
