MOOSE JAW CAMERA CLUB

Shooting in the Dark

A Blade in the WindThe days are getting shorter and those of us that love low light photography have more hours in the day (or over the weekend) to give our cameras a good workout.

If you are a fair-weather-photographer and can’t take the cold for very long, try to capture the sunset or sunrise. Twilight photography is another great opportunity to capture the blue and golden hours of the day. Still too cold? Light a candle and photograph its glow.

I recently came across this National Geographic article. It is a short lesson on low light photography. Check it out and see if it has something of interest for you.

Here are a few more links to help you gain confidence:

Mark your calendars for December 7th. Vaughn will share some hands on techniques for low light photography during our pre-Chrsitmas meeting, just in time for the “Christmas Magic” theme. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
