Night Photography – 7 Tips for How to Shoot Photos at Night

Shooting at night is all about being prepared and experimenting with your camera’s various settings. Here are some things to consider in order to make the most of your night photography:

  1. Scout your location.

Given that you will be working in the dark, scout your location to plan your images before shooting. Make note of any possible challenges or obstacles. Is the site lit with artificial light? Do the lights change colors? What angle looks best? How can you best maximize the light you have?

  1. Prepare for long periods outside.

When shooting at night, prepare to be outside for long periods of time. It takes time and effort to get great night photography shots, from setting up the tripod and camera to adjusting the camera settings for proper exposure time

  1. Bring a flashlight.

Even with ambient urban light, it still might be difficult to see your camera’s manual controls or see the screws for your tripod. A small flashlight is a useful light source as you make your way through the night. You might even be able to use it to light part of your image.

  1. Shoot in manual mode.

The shooting manual gives you total control over your camera’s settings. Since nighttime photography requires you to work slowly and methodically, take the time to get your settings right.

  1. Keep your camera’s ISO as low as possible.

You might think that working with low light would require a high ISO setting, but that could be a mistake. The higher your ISO, the more grain becomes an issue, so you’ll want to go as low as possible. Take a couple of test shots at various ISO settings.

  1. Use a tripod for long exposures.

Nighttime photography usually requires long shutter speeds of 10 seconds or more so you can soak as much light up from your environment as possible. How do you keep your shot focused for 10 or more seconds? For that, you’re going to need a sturdy tripod.

  1. Make sure you’re shooting RAW.

The downgrade in quality that JPEG introduces can kill your nighttime shots, so stick with RAW. You’ll be thankful to be working with unprocessed images if you want to play around with your colors in post-processing.

10 Things You Should Always Bring When Camping Outdoors

It is essential to know what you should include while camping outdoors. Here’s a not-to-be-forgotten list of camping essentials:

1. Solar-powered batteries: Mobile phones, GPS locater and palmtops are omnipresent gadgets. But you might not always get a power outlet. Solar-powered batteries allow you to continue using your devices.

2. Lightweight LED light: It’s crucial to have torch lights or flashlight. It’s better for waterproof light. They are handy at nighttime if you need to check out anything.

3. Insect repellent: Whether a spray or ointment, never go camping without one, especially if you are prone to bug bites, and especially if you have children along.

4. Trash bags: Respect the outdoor environment. Do not litter. Always throw in a packet of huge black bags in your camper to contain the trash that you create outdoors. All waste must be discarded properly.

5. Water and extra food: Carry more water and food than what you think you might need. In emergencies, it will be very useful in saving you from starvation or dehydration, especially if you have kids camping with you.

6. Warm outerwear and gloves: Outdoor areas like forests, lakes or mountains are open to inclement weather even at the best of times. It’s sensible to bring weatherproof jackets and gloves to keep comfortable.

7. Take the camera: Pack in a camera and related equipment with extra batteries. Remember to clear memory cards on digital cameras or carry extra film for film cameras.

8. Match boxes or lighters: It might become essential to light a fire (to stay warm or flash signals). Having match boxes or candle-lighters is always a good idea. Fires have saved lives.

9. First-aid kit: You should carry one with medicine for cuts, scrapes, bug bites, poison ivy, burns and other minor injuries. It’s also important to have medicine for aches, pains and tummy upsets.

10. Sturdy footwear: Hiking boots or heavy sneakers are smart things to bring camping. They reduce risk of falling, support ankles, and generally keep you out of harm’s way in the great outdoors.

bike light

Why Bike Lights Are Important Even in Daylight?

Every bicycle when in use during the hours of darkness shall be equipped with a lamp on the front of bicycle. The primary purpose of bike light is not only so that motor vehicles can see you, but also you can see. “Being seen” is also as important during the day as it is at night.

According to the statistics of bike/car incidents, the common thread in nearly every one of these incidents is that the car driver was not aware of the cyclist until it was too late and often not until the moment of impact. The most common accident involves a left-turning car driver who simply does not see the oncoming cyclist.

Awareness is the key. Cyclists simply do not have the mass or size of a car and are essentially invisible to motorists. Furthermore, there are not enough cyclists on the roads to make an impact. The car driver is not accustomed to seeing cyclists on the road and, therefore, cyclists are not on the driver’s radar screen.

If a car driver only sees the occasional cyclist, he does not have a heightened awareness or an anticipatory thought process — “Before I change lanes, I better look over my shoulder to see if there is a cyclist to my right.” Or, “Although there are no cars approaching, I better scan to check for cyclists.” Until there is a dramatic increase in the number of cyclists sharing the road with cars, this automatic, reflexive thought process on the part of motor vehicle drivers will not occur.

Besides encouraging everyone we know to commute by bike, what can cyclists do to immediately raise awareness? The answer: Buy a strobe and use it as a daytime running light. Motorcycles are required in many states to have their headlamp on during daylight hours and most new cars have headlights that automatically come on when the car is running. The logic is simple. While daytime use of such lights does not help a cyclist or motorcyclist see any better, it dramatically increases the cyclist’s visibility to others.

Over the past few years, the market has been flooded with an abundance of small, lightweight and inexpensive LED strobes. The lights are simple to use and clip onto your handlebars or helmet in seconds.

Using one of these inexpensive LED strobes during the day is the simplest and maybe the most effective thing you can do to increase your visibility during the daylight areas.
