How to photograph at night and get great shots

How to photograph at night and get great shots | Photography : How to take that picture! | Scoop.it

Why do night shots look so attractive to us?

Our retina is build with rods and cones. Rods offer much better night vision, but far less color sensitivity than cones. Since our eyes have to keep a fixed exposure time, this is nature’s elegant trade off.

Our cameras work the same at all times. To compensate for lower light, we increase exposure time, a luxury the human eye cannot afford.

Our camera is capable of recording colors invisible to us, as the color sensitivity of the camera does not change with exposure.

This results in photographs that look brilliant and much better than we see the world at night...

5 Tips To Transform Your Photography With Long Exposures

5 Tips To Transform Your Photography With Long Exposures | Photography : How to take that picture! | Scoop.it

Employing long exposure photography techniques is a great way to create an image that makes others go “Wow!”.

If you’re unfamiliar with long exposure photography the major ingredient needed is low light conditions, which will require your camera to expose for longer periods of time. In fact it’s even possible to use filters to reduce the amount of light that comes through your lens so as to produce long exposures even during the brightest times of day.

 

Long exposures enable photographers to create an abstracted or surreal visual experience as opposed to reproducing a scene as we might see with our naked eye. In this regard long exposures allow you to artistically create something from a subject or scene that might otherwise seem ordinary with more standard photographic techniques. With that in mind here are 5 tips to transform your photography with long exposures:

 

1. Create Atmosphere

2. Discover Hidden Movement

3. Create Using A Canvas of Light
