Shoot in Low Light Conditions


Photography is not easy for those professional photographers who want to shoot in low light conditions. As there is no enough light, we have to risk taking photos that might be unsharp, noisy, or even flat out blurry. Then how to get better digital shots in low light conditions?

Use a flash

Most of us will immediately think of using a flash, which is regarded as the biggest solution to low light photography. But with a flash, sometimes your subject in your digital photography might decrease its original beauty, as we all know that the built-in flash has the effect of lighting your subject on the front only which compresses the depth in your digital photos. So try another two ways to help get good images in low light conditions without a flash.


Carry a tripod
A tripod could really help when you’re shooting things that keep still or almost, like landscape or portraits. Since in this way, you could use longer shutter speed to get enough lighting. Of course, in many cases, for instance, if you’re shooting moving subjects in low light conditions, carrying a tripod is not realistic, but still could try if necessary.

Raise the ISO speed

The ISO simply means the amount of sensitivity of light falling on the camera sensor. In low light conditions, it is almost always necessary to use a higher ISO speed, which will avoid camera shake and blurry photos to a certain degree. Don’t worried so much about the noise caused by the high ISO speed, because it can be reduced in Photoshop. Someone else also recommended other two noise reduction software called “Noise Ninja” and “Neat Image”.

Actually, we always take multiple ways together to get better shots if necessary. The key element of shooting in low light conditions is the light; thus, try all what you can to get enough light.
