Many cameras have a night time scene mode. As you may have guessed, it’s designed for shooting at night time. This mode slows down your shutter speed, increasing exposure time and enabling your camera to get brighter backgrounds. Select night mode on your camera’s dial and see whether it yields good results. Because you need a longer exposure, use a tripod to keep your camera as still as possible. Camera shake will result in the photo being blurred. In addition to a tripod, try using a cable release or self timer so that pressing the shutter button doesn’t cause shakiness in your image. Sometimes, automatic settings such as your night time scene mode don’t give you the best images. So try a manual mode. If your camera allows it, select manual mode from the LCD screen. Now, you want to make sure you’re using the slow shutter speed, possible one second or longer. So the aperture stays open longer.
The aperture is the size of the opening of the lens when the image is captured. Go ahead and manually set the shutter speed and aperture. This gives you more control over the settings and allows you to test different exposures to see which one works best. This technique is referred to as bracketing. To bracket exposures, set a wide aperture of F3.5 and select a slow shutter speed. Take a photo and then try the next longer shutter speed and so on until you get the perfect exposure. Note which settings you’re using for each shot, so that next time you’re familiar with what worked.
If you’re shooting with the digital SLR use lenses capable of a wide aperture of at least F2.8. A wide aperture lets in the most amount of light. If you want to use a faster shutter speed because you don’t have tripod, increase the ISO setting. ISO is your camera’s image sensor sensitivity to light. Find the ISO setting on your LCD screen and increase it to 800 or 1600. Just keep in mind that the higher the ISO the more noise or graininess your image may contain.
