(Tip #1) When taking photos like the one above, you can’t use a really slow shutter speed. The projections move, so if you use anything more than 3secs you might end up with a weird blur of colours. Not that it’s not good, but depends on what you’re aiming for in the image. Some projections are more active than others, so be flexible and know how to adapt.
