Wait until the sun goes down.

In many ways night photography is just like day photography, except there's less light. With less light, you need a slower shutter speed, a wider aperture, a faster ISO, or a combination of all three. Or else you need to add light.

Just like day photography, the best camera settings (and other things) depend on what you want the photograph to say to the viewer.

You can add light by using the flash, car headlights, etc. The flash doesn't have much range; if you're sitting in the stands at a night sporting event your flash isn't going to affect any pictures you take of the action on the field. Another effect of the short range is that if you take a flash picture of a person at night, you're likely to have an almost completely black background. If you want something of the background to show, use the Night Portrait mode (and a tripod).

If you want to take a picture of a night landscape (or the night sky, with star trails) then turn off the flash. Put the camera on a tripod or other steady support and use a slow shutter speed.

If you're taking a picture of the full moon, then it's not night photography at all. The full moon is just a big rock under a midday sun, so treat it as such.

Night photography tips using nikon d3100


The best tip is to use a tripod or other camera support. That is, unless you want the blur from camera motion.

Other than that, it depends on what you're photographing, and what you want that photograph to say to the viewer.

Hi there. i have D7000 with 50mm F1.8D. what would be the best camera setting for in-house and outdoor photography?


That would depend on a lot of factors. Are you doing the outdoor photography in the day or at night? Are you doing the indoor photography in the day or at night? With just existing light or with aritificial light? What do you want the photos to say to the viewer?

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you want to take pictures for real estate sales purposes. If not, please reply to this post and say what you want the photos for.

Outdoors, I'd just put the camera into the Program (P) exposure mode. Since the house and shrubbery aren't going to be moving very fast, the autofocus setting doesn't matter much (just make sure it is set to one of the autofocus modes, not manual). Leave the white balance on auto.

Indoor, if there's enough daylight coming in through the windows, go with Program exposure, any autofocus, and auto white balance. If you have to use floodlights, set the white balance to match the floods. The camera's built-in flash won't evely illuminate a room (nearer stuff will be much brighter than the farther stuff), so don't use it. You can use an external flash with a diffuser or bounced off the ceiling or a wall.

The film crank on my Nikon EM is broken. Half of the top is broken off. It wont rewind film. I don't think i will be able to fix it myself.


That's a shame they are/were a great little camera I still have one and use it for night photography. I suppose taking it to a repair place would cost more then finding another used on on the likes of e-Bay. If you do decide to repair I'd suggest doing a search for repair depots in your area.

Night shots


Hey matty reps,
You are attempting one of the most challenging types of photography there is, because you are combing nighttime photography and action photography. If you want to stop the action you normally would be using the highest shutter speed possible, but since you are trying to take nighttime action photographs I would rely on a flash since the flash duration in essence becomes your shutter speed. I would definitely use a hotshoe mounted flash because the built in flash will most likely not be powerful enough for your needs. I would have the camera set to aperture priority so I could control the depth of field, because the smaller the aperture the larger depth of field you will have and the less likely your subject will be out of focus. If you are attempting natural light nighttime action photography you will definitely need a very fast film speed such as 3200 speed film which will provide significant loss of image quality. You will also need a very fast lens meaning a lens with an aperture of at least f2.8 or larger, and your camera in this scenario should be set to shutter priority so you can set the camera to the fastest shutter speed possible but this will present focusing issues. In both scenarios I would have the AF system set to continuous so the camera doesn't require you to achieve focus to be able to trip the shutter. As in all challenging photography situations more photos are better than less, because you should have more failed photos than successful. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Nikon d70s novice


I'm the same of you, only I went for the D40.
One general photography book that seems to be recommended by a lot of people is Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson (ISBN13: 978-0817463007 or ISBN10: 0817463003)
I've just bought a copy, so will comment with my own opinions later if you want :)

Can't really comment on D70-specific books I'm afraid.
