Landscape > Night photography

Night photography

One of the best times to take night photographs is not in the middle of the night but at dusk, before the sky has lost all of its light. The remaining light at this time of day helps to delineate the buildings and trees from the night sky.

Night photography is often seen as a technically demanding exercise. With a little extra equipment and a little knowledge however the pitfalls can easily be avoided. Use a tripod to brace the camera, a cable release to release the shutter (optional if using the self timer) and a flashlight to set controls of the camera. Raising the ISO and the use of very long exposures (over 1 second) can present ‘noise’ problems for prosumer cameras using smaller CCD sensors and some of the budget DSLRs.
