A thought crossed my mind the other day. When I'm out taking pics of stationary aircraft, I normally use 250 or 500 as my selected shutterspeed. I normally don't use a tripod for this, as I don't find it to be necessary.
But, would I get a desent picture if I used a tripod and took a pic of a stationary aircraft with 3-4 sec as the shutterspeed? Naturally I would make sure too much light wouldn't pass through the lens, so that it wouldn't go white.
Would the pic be ruined, or would it turn out nice and clear?
