Low Light Photography Tutorial: Grab Your Gear!

Hey, I’m Gary.

I’m a photographer and an Apple geek. In this little nighttime photography tutorial I took the bull by the horns and jumped out on the balcony to grab a rare shot of Swindon – the moon & sun setting at the same time behind the skyline.

Here’s the setup:
Camera: Nikon D3s (in aperture priority)
Lens: Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8 G
ISO: 200 (to aid the long exposure time and keep maximum quality)
Aperture: ƒ22 (for those epic blue skies!)
Shutter speed: (Variable – mine was at 15 seconds)

I know that’s all pretty high end gear, but the settings are the same for lower end kits. Keep the tripod still and if you’re really worried about camera shake when you press the shoot button then use the countdown timer.
