Shooting in low light can be tricky, but totally possible! I’m always capturing moments in lowlight because I love the emotion that is captured. As I shoot photography as much as we can, I get a lot of opportunities both in-doors and out-doors. In addition to good ‘ol practice, here are a few simple ways you can capture great photos in darker settings.
- The first recommendation is to use a tripod. This ensures that your camera will be steady, which allows you to get a clear picture.
- Increase your camera’s ISO to let more light in. Doing this will also increase “noise” in your image. It does allow you to shoot without a tripod to a certain point though. If you’re hoping to avoid noise, you can try adjusting your shutter speed or opening up your aperture.
- Shooting in RAW also gives you more flexibility when editing your images.
- You can always use a flash. When going this route you’ll have the best outcome with an off-camera flash that’s held off to the side.
