Have Fun Experimenting With Low Light Photography
Swathi • onGeneral 9 years ago • 2 min read

You can do plenty of experimenting with photography stuff when there is low light and this photography tip will teach you how. The good thing is that you also do not need an expensive camera to do so. All you need is a camera that has manual setting and read digital camera tips to learn how to operate it. This article will also contain details about film cameras too.

Here are a few things you require: * Tripod * Flashlight * Camera * A subject to shoot. For example: a person, landscape or an object. I suggest you keep it simple in the beginning, working with inanimate objects or landscapes. * Remote shutter release (this is optional if you have a timer on your camera)

You need to mount your camera onto the tripod and connect your remote trigger; alternatively set it to timer mode. You want to trigger the shutter separately or use the timer so that you do not need to juggle your camera when doing long exposures.

If you are beginning photography, you would be interested to know that the flashlight is used for two things. The most essential function is for focusing. The flashlight is also for painting with light. This is a fun activity because you can use a laser pointer, a hand held flash which you can fire manually, and a flashlight. Essentially, you can use anything that gives off light.

To start, first choose an object from around your house and prepare a black backdrop for it. Then, start your experiment with light painting. This can be an activity that is lots of fun.

If you are not successful at your first try, you should not give up. You need to keep in mind that when you are looking at other people’s photos, you are looking at their one or two good ones. Of course, you do not get to see their paintings that they throw out.
