Default Light trails

Just bought a Nikon sd3200 and I'm off to New York for chrimbo so would love to learn how to do some light trail pictures while in NYC . Light trails while I'm in the Empire State at dusk would look soo cool?

Tripod, and put it on manual, select an aperture, select a long time interval, 10s or more, then experiment.

The lower the APERTURE you set, the less light comes in, but the better the depth of field, (more stuff in focus from near to far).

What do you mean by light trails though, as if you're in the building and there's nothing moving you won't get trails. Or are you planning to make the trails yourself with a torch/light?

Unless you mean start trails, then that's a whole different kettle of fish.
