Photography after Dark

Night time can be the right time for some very interesting photographs - with the right technique and tools.

A tripod is essential for steady images, as shutter speeds have to be extended considerably. The general rule of steadiness calls for a shutter speed of a fraction of a second divided by the lens focal length. For example, with a 200mm lens, the slowest shutter speed you should use would be 1/200 th of a second.

Night time shots of West Kelowna forest fire (as seen on the right) called for exposures of 10 to 30 seconds. Given the high winds of the night, an extra weight hanging on the tripod is helpful to provide greater stability.
