Evening photography can be somewhat testing being on programmed settings on you d-SLR camera however here are a few stages to get you on your approach to shooting at night.When the camera is on its programmed setting the photos brought are baffling with some photographs even wind up being very dull.
This is finished by the camera not hitting the nail on the head with camera shake and opening setting being to low so we have to change this, we can change the setting on your DSLR camera to manual mode this implies you can change your setting physically to get the evening time pictures right.
To Know how to turn on your camera look for the dials on your camera to manually change the aperture setting and shutter speeds, if you don’t now how check your cameras manual for details.
Now the shutter speed is shown on your LCD as a fraction like 1/60 fraction and aperture setting are symboled with a F8.0 setting and there should be a dial to change them.The aperture setting should be as low as your setting will go at an average of F2.0-F3.5, this is the hole that blocks the light when to small or opens the hole to get as much light in as possible so our setting should be a low aperture setting.
Now to the shutter speed is the next thing you need to change and this needs to be trailed, the fraction setting means that it’s a fraction of a second like 1/4 is a quarter of a second 1/2 is a half a second then in quotes symbol is .6 or .7 of a second so try a 1 second shutter speed setting to test your night time photos, If the photo is to bright you can lesser the shutter time or more if that is the case.
The second tip that you need to now is camera shake because the shutter speed is so long there is no way you can take the shot hand held, so the camera needs to be placed some were you can keep it still for the shutter speed to carry out.
This can be done by a tripod, sitting it on a wall or flat steady surface, even though your camera is kited with image stablelization this is no good for night time photography so the tripod placed on a wall were your camera can stay still to take the photo.
But when you take the shot the camera shakes, when you press the button so a timed shot will have to be used this can be on your camera as a setting or a cable button to fire the shot.
Also if your camera has stablelization these need to be switched off because your camera is still this can cause the camera to distort the photo as well with camera shake of something that is not there.
