f/4.5 is a bit too slow for underground, IMO. I'd try to stick with f/4 and faster. Remember that lower f/numbers allow more light in.

 

Thanks guys.

 

Anyways, the camera would only allow me to lower it to f/4.5 in that area. At some time, it goes down to as low as f/3.5, but I always have it to the lowest it can go.

Very nice pics. Even though flash can be useful, it is illegal so you shouldn't and can't use it anyway. Besides, flash is only good for non-reflective surfaces, so seeing a giant white spot on a subway car subtracts from the picture...

Nice Pics, I didnt know about the flash rule..

 

Most manufactures keep the 50mm lens prices low. For Canon DSLR users, for about $70-90 you can get the 50mm f1.8 lens which will let you get more 'no flash allowed' shots than with the slower zoom lenses. It's be like shooting an 80mm lens on the 1.6X sensor cams. It's a fixed length, so you'll have less quantity of opportunities, but possibly more quality shots.

 

Check your cam manual to see if you have 'High ISO noise reduction'. It's C.FnII-2 on my 40D.

Also, Try to tuck you elbow into your gut/side, and lean on something if possible to stabilize the cam & yourself.

 

Keep shooting, I'll be watching to see if I turn up in someones pic! :P
