Night photography is, without a doubt, fascinating, inasmuch as it is a challenge, sometimes result uncertain and unpredictable (recovered from the serious damaged photos very annoying), but that requires a stimulating challenge to achieve spectacular images. In addition, work with scarce light conditions in certain scenarios provides us multiple possibilities. We just have to bear in mind some questions for amazing pictures. They are always striking, both if they are landscapes serene in the light of the Moon, as if it’s an urban landscape filled with movement, but all of them require a minimum of planning. In addition, now that approaching a crucial dates (Solstice, Meteor,), night photography is a good soil where experience. Contrary to what it may seem, the requirements are well a few, since with digital cameras this type of photography has greatly boosted due to its immense possibilities. Let us review some helpful hints: * Material: a reflex Digital (the Compact are also worth, if they have manual controls), a tripod (the stabilization system is insufficient for long exposures, so better disable it) and as option a shutter release cable or a remote control by infrared, bargain price and very useful for this type of photography artistic. * When dealing with slow exposure speeds is convenient to check if our machine has B (Bulb) mode, that will allow us to take a photograph during the time that we want to (although some have it limited).
* We will use Manual mode to control both the diaphragm aperture and shutter speed, since the photometry of this type of scenes is very conflictive and compels us to introduce us the appropriate values. ** The best time in a night landscape is the immediately subsequent to the sunset or the before departure (do remember the blue hour?). Since in one night closed we will not find sufficient slightly illuminated details that highlight.
