  Getting the Best Camera Shots at Night  

For many people, taking pictures at night simply means using a flash. They don't give it much more thought than that. If you are a photography buff, though, you might think differently about nighttime photography. To you, they can be a way to show your passion for photography; a unique and beautiful form of expression. There are tricks to taking good night pictures; tricks that involve more than just using a decent flash to light up your subjects. Depending on the mood that you are trying to evoke, your night pictures can be exciting, calming, sexy, or inspiring.

Night pictures need a certain amount of light, of course. What is special about them, though, is that the light can be an integral part of the mood you want to create with your photo. If you are at an outdoor summer pool party, for example, you can get some wonderful pictures of people by the pool. When you find just the right angle you can use the light at the bottom of the pool to illuminate only one part of a person's face, giving an ethereal look to the shot. The reflection of the moon on a lake or the ocean can make the simplest photo suitable for framing.

Night photography can be tricky. It often takes a lot of practice to learn the subtleties of light and shadow at night, and at first, you'll find yourself discarding more photos than you keep. When photographing people's faces, red-eye is often a problem, but this problem can often be dealt with by manipulating the light sources so that they don't "attack" your subject too harshly. One way to do this is to not use your camera's flash but to use a bright enough light source that is farther away from your camera. This is also a great way to get different effects.

Whether you are taking pictures of people or things, you want to capture the special feel that nightfall adds to the atmosphere. When taking a picture of a lake in the moonlight you want people to think that they can almost hear the crickets chirping. When taking a picture of a city at night you want to capture the excitement and anticipation. Play with the lights at night; don't be afraid to let them streak a bit for effect, or get an angle so that one thing is illuminated more than others. You'll find that night photography gives you ample opportunity to use your imagination and creativity in wonderful ways.
