Shoot Multiple Shots in Low-Light Situations

SCOTT KELBY

If you’re in a situation where you’re having to shoot in low light without a tripod (if your shutter speed gets under 1/60 of second, there’s a pretty good chance your photo will be somewhat blurry if you’re hand-holding), and you don’t want to raise your ISO because your photo will get too noisy, here’s a trick you can try that will usually get a sharp photo: shoot multiple shots in Burst or High-Speed Continuous mode. Chances are, if you take three or four shots in a quick burst, at least one of those shots will be in focus. I’ve done this numerous times and I’m always amazed at the results. You’ll see a blurry one, blurry one, then all of a sudden there’s a nice crisp shot (as shown here with the five-star image labeled yellow), and then right back to blurry. So, next time you’re in one of those situations, crank off a few right in a row, and keep your fingers crossed that at least one of those will be in focus (hey, it’s better than the alternative).
