Since I’ve been teaching I have heard many times how people think that night photography is really hard.
I thought perhaps I might give away the secret of night photography.
When I am teaching a class I tell them that there is really nothing different to taking photos at night than there is during the day. Perhaps the only difference is time. Photos at night take a lot longer.
When you are taking a photo of something during the day you decide what aperture you will use and then decide what ISO would be best. At night you put your camera on a tripod and then decide what aperture, probably the same as you would use during the day. The ISO can be very low because you are using a tripod, and if you have a 30 second shutter speed, it doesn’t matter.
So don’t be afraid of photos at night, just try it and see how you go. Good luck.
