What you’ll learn:

  • Choos­ing a meter­ing mode for low-light con­di­tions
  • Using expo­sure com­pen­sa­tion for night pho­tog­ra­phy

  • Using a tri­pod to cre­ate light streaks and avoid­ing cam­era shake


Tak­ing a night pho­tog­ra­phy course with prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es is a great way to learn the skills and tech­niques you need to cap­ture stun­ning and expres­sive night pho­tos. In the les­son, you’ll learn how to choose the cor­rect meter­ing mode for low-light con­di­tions, how to use expo­sure com­pen­sa­tion to adjust the expo­sure of your images, and how to set the right white bal­ance for city lights. You’ll also learn the impor­tance of man­u­al focus­ing in the dark and bal­anc­ing ISO, aper­ture, and shut­ter speed in low light con­di­tions to get the best results.

In addi­tion to learn­ing these tech­ni­cal skills, you’ll also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to put your new skills into prac­tice through prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es. You’ll learn how to use a tri­pod to cre­ate light streaks and avoid cam­era shake, and you’ll have the chance to shoot var­i­ous sub­jects and scenes under the guid­ance of an expe­ri­enced instruc­tor. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es gives you a hands-on, immer­sive learn­ing expe­ri­ence that will help you devel­op your skills and unleash your cre­ative poten­tial as a night pho­tog­ra­ph­er.
