The opening of the diaphragm, which allows more or less light through the lens to reach the sensor. You will need to use large openings if you want to take night shots by hand. The shutter speed, which lets the light pass more or less quickly. By lowering the exposure time, the amount of light received will be greater.
The sensitivity as to it, will make the sensor more or less sensitive to light. We will see in more detail later in the article how you will have to use these settings to get always successful night photos. You may not have thought of it, but there is a good time to make better photos at night. This ephemeral moment, when the light comes to disappear is called the blue hour.
If you intend to make night shots by hand, I strongly advise you to bring a bright lens. The fixed focal lengths are the best examples, since they have a very large aperture of the diaphragm, such as a 35mm f / 1.8. They have the advantage of bringing in much more light than slippery aperture lenses. As a result, you can work at faster shutter speeds.

The other parameter that increases the amount of light is the shutter speed, reducing the exposure time. Only here, at night, there is not much light. When shooting at night by hand, you must keep a speed fast enough to avoid the blur of shake. Remember that the shutter speed should be proportional to the focal length used to obtain a sharp picture. For example, if you shoot with a 35mm lens, consider being at least 1/30 of a second. It’s very theoretical, but it’s a good starting point. Depending on your stability, lower your speed one step, trigger and check the sharpness. The problem is different if your camera or lens has built-in stabilization. Do not hesitate to use it because it will save you several speeds! In these conditions of low light, the shutter speed can quickly fall and photographing at night by hand can quickly make your pictures blurry. The goal is stability.
You need to find a stable place to put your camera so that it does not move during exposure. In order to avoid this, I advise you to equip yourself with a tripod. It is the essential accessory for those who wish to take pictures at night in good conditions. It’s also the perfect companion for compact and low-end bridges to ensure sharp photos. Be careful to disable the stabilizer if you use a tripod, it is useless. I recommend you bring a remote control to make your photos at night, especially if you intend to do long poses. It prevents sudden movement when the shutter button is pressed and increases the power to make clearer images.
Otherwise, you can use the self-timer of your camera to avoid creating vibrations when triggering. Also remember to bring an extra battery when you go out at night. Indeed, when taking pictures with quite long exposure times, and especially when the nights are cool, they discharge much faster. It’s a simple piece of advice, but we do not always think about it! Be careful when using the flash. In order to keep a night atmosphere, it is forbidden. No need to flash everything! Except in the case of night portrait or a specific use of complex lighting with multiple flashes to illuminate several areas of the landscape.
Many of us do not like bad weather, and it’s quite normal not to want to go out when it rains. When it comes to taking photos in the rain, the fear of wetting his camera equipment is the first reason not to risk it. The second is the motivation; it’s never so good to get wet and take a picture in the rain. But here you are, you miss opportunities to make beautiful photos even when the weather is not suitable. We do not think about it often enough, but to take pictures in the rain is a trainer. I’m going to give you some simple tips so that from now on you will not have any excuse to take your camera out in the rain. As you all know, the rain is wet and a photo ballad in these conditions requires a minimum of preparation, namely the protection of your equipment and yourself. There is nothing more unpleasant than being soaked when taking pictures in the rain.
