Home > Photography > Members' Photos: Night Shots

With night photography, the photographer discovers the challenges of working in low-light conditions.

Two options are:
  • provide additional artificial light (eg: flash), or
  • increase exposure of the camera's light sensitive surface (film or sensor) to the available light.
The latter option involves increasing the camera aperture and/or increasing the time the shutter remains open. With a small digital camera, this usually means selecting from one or more of the camera's "night" programmed settings.

Photographing movement at night may present opportunities to create dramatic or artistic effects.
