Handheld Night Photography question

    Hey Clare - With an aperture like f/5.6 you will have deeper focus, meaning more things from foreground to background will be in focus. But it comes at a cost of letting less light get to your sensor, which is usually what you need most at night. 

    It's always better to have as fast of a lens as possible, (lower aperture like f/2.8 or f/2.) but these are more expensive usually. 

    It sounds like to me your shutter speed was too slow. It's possible that you'll need to up your ISO or get a tripod so you can shoot a longer exposure without the motion blur. Hope that helps!
