Travel Photography Tip #1

Jump to last reply

FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN: Don’t put away the camera come sundown, because the deep azure glow of twilight and colorful city lights at night are a photographer’s dream canvas. You will need a tripod because the exposure times (ranging from approximately a half-second to 90 seconds) will be too long for handheld shots. Set the aperture to a high number, say f/16, and the entire picture (from left to right and top to bottom) will be tack sharp. Look for those cityscapes that skirt a body of water for some brilliant reflections. If reflections are dull or largely non-existent, exclude most of the water from the composed scene. With pretty city lights revealing almost every hue in the color spectrum, photographing at dusk and night will produce some gorgeous imagery.
