I recently added a very useful tool to my photographic kit, a tripod! This makes taking low light shots much easier. Tonight I decided to test my camera’s limits and went for a night shoot. The moon was out, street lights were glistening, a nice dry evening. I realized two settings are essential to night-time conditions 1) aperture and 2) shutter speed. If you are not mindful of your aperture you will not realize how much of your image will be in focus. Yet, if you do not take shutter speed into consideration well, you might just take one black photo right after another.
Here are my favorite shots of tonight’s secession:
