Photography Tips – The Star Effect with Night Photography

Taking photos at night is something that lots of us enjoy, and recently I went on an excursion into the city with the Social Snappers. We were looking at taking photos of the lights and how you can get effects from them. I thought I would give you some photography tips on how to achieve this.


In the old days of film you would get a filter that would give you a star effect with the lights, however, it is much easier these days, to get that effect.


To get the star effect, like the above image all you have to do on a DSLR is tp change your aperture to f/16 or higher, I mean number values, like f/22.  You will get that star effect if you do that. I have done other posts on doing night photography, so if you are not sure how to do night photography then you should go and check out the following post, Is Night Photography Hard.

I am also considering doing a series of posts on Photography Tips, and things that might help you with your photography. Each week I am going to try and give you little tips that might help you to take your photos.  There are lots of things that can help you to get better photos.
