You don't always need to turn to a photo editor
after taking a night scene any more.
Step 1: 1. The tripod is very important
The first point I would like say is that for photographing night scene, a solid tripod is very important , because we usually also use a slow shutter for photographing night scene, if the tripod is shaky, the photo will be blurred, and you must adjust the photo effects
Step 2: 2. Use M-MODE (manual mode) to photograph easily
For normal handheld photographing, most of the time I will use the A-mode for photographing , so that we can effectively control the depth of field and shutter speed , but for night photographing I mostly use manual mode ( M -mode ) .
(1) First transfer to A-mode for metering light, decide the aperture value and ISO, for example, f / 8, ISO200, and the shutter is 2 seconds;
(2)Then turn to the M-mode, set the aperture to f / 8, ISO200 and shutter is two seconds, try to photograph one photo.
(3) Take a look at the effect, if necessary, refer to the histogram and determine exposure situation, if the overall scene is dim, we will usually slow shutter rather than increasing the aperture or ISO.
Step 3: 3. Change the white balance
Change white balance is to change the color of the photo, most of the time change white balance can bring different results to your photos!
