11.1. How to Photograph at Night and in Low Light

One of the easiest ways to do night photography is simply to grab a tripod and venture out into the night. Set up the camera on the tripod and shoot! The tripod stabilizes your camera so that you don't have to worry about camera shake with long exposures.

You can use the long exposures to create special effects like the streaks of light from moving vehicles. One of my favorite things to do when I visit any city is to photograph the skyline at night. The multitudes of different-colored lights make these pictures vibrant and interesting. Even though these are shot in the dark, there is actually plenty of light to be found. Cities take on a different and more interesting character when photographed at night.
