35 Brilliant Examples Of Night Photography

Night photography is a special part of this domain for the depth of colours offered by it. Today I’d like to share a few useful things with you.

What are the tools in night photography?

– Tripod. While not always necessary, a tripod will give you the greatest flexibility to get the angles you need while keeping your camera steady for those long exposures.

-Wide-angle lenses. This is a not a must but more and more prefer it. Use Canon’s 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 ($700) or the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II ($1300). If both of these are out of your price range – don’t worry! Try it out with whatever you’ve got as the only thing that will limit you is your imagination.

– A lens hood. To minimize lens flares from light entering at angles outside of your frame.

– A flashlight. Sometimes you’ll want to draw attention to or simply lighten up an important part of the foreground which is too dark.

– Our imagination. Tools lie all around us in everyday objects to help us make our work better in this; some used bicycle lamps, lampposts and newspaper boxes to get it done.
