Check out our top ten tips on how to improve your night photography
If you’re drawn to the heavy saturated colours of night photography but hate lugging a tripod – or perhaps you physically cannot carry a tripod – you’re in for a treat. Here we show you three quick and effective low-light photography tips on how to set up your camera to shoot hands-free night photography.
Are you looking to experiment with longer exposures? If you plan to shoot for longer than 30 seconds, you will need to set your EOS camera to Bulb mode. It’s very simple to do. Below we show you how to do it in three easy steps.
An Arizona company has launched a super high-resolution digital camera that is capable of photographing a starry sky in the middle of the day.
The 1110 series from Spectral Instruments boasts a 112-megapixel CCD sensor measuring 95 x 95mm, which are extremely light sensitive and can take exposures lasting hours without recording any noise.
The company says its 1110 series cameras have a dynamic range so big that they can photograph both the sun and the stars during broad daylight.
You don’t need us to tell you there’s no need to pack away your digital camera just because the sun’s gone down. Night photography is one of the more thrilling genres of taking pictures, and one of its more popular sub-genres is capturing the effect of light trails.
Traffic trails are a classic example of how a long exposure can pep up a dusk shot. Find out how to do it inside…
Capturing pin-sharp, stunning night photos can be a real feather in the portfolio of any photographer, but particularly for those of you who like to take architectural photos. But night photography can also prove a real challenge if you don’t use the right settings and techniques.
Capturing the movement of the stars across the night sky would normally involve exposures of several minutes, but on a digital camera this can result in unwanted noise. The easiest way to overcome this problem is to take a sequence of shorter exposures (of around 30 seconds each) and combine them into a single image in Photoshop.
The days may be getting longer, but (hopefully) they will also be getting warmer. Spring and summer are perfect times of the year to explore the world of night photography, but as you can imagine, there are many challenges when working with long exposures. Below we’ve identified 12 of the most common problems you’ll encounter when shooting night photography and offered our tips for overcoming them.
