Light is the mainstay of photography. Without it there is no photograph. However with just a fraction of light to the full brilliance of the sun and everything in between those two extremes gives a result. The understanding of how light acts can have a profound effect on the quality of your photos. When light is discussed we are talking about several aspects of it. What is the source of the light? Is it natural light or electrically produced light? If it is manufactured light what type of bulb is producing it? Neon, tungsten, gas flame, household light bulb? What is the colour of the light? The time of day has a big effect on the colour of the light as well as the harshness or softness of the light.

One of my favorite types of digital photography is shooting at night. The difficulty with night shooting is getting the balance between having your ISO right down low versus the aperture setting you are using and then figuring out the length of time to keep the shutter open. Are there any rules around this? Not really. Are there any rough guidelines around this? There are a couple. Aperture set at F11 to F16, ISO as low as you can get it, shutter open for ………. Well that is the tricky part. If its a full moon on a clear night I would start with a minute. If there is no moon and its a cloudy night, start with five minutes. Any conditions in between, pick another time. Its just practice. Set yourself a good half hour to patiently experiment with making the shot. If you are really keen you can chart it as you do it to see the differences as you go. That’s often easier than reviewing the photo data hours or days later and trying to figure it all out then.
Frame The Shot
This tip is about the composition of your shot through framing it. When you are setting up a shot you want to look for something that frames your picture. Something that defines the top and side edges and give boundaries to the shot. Doing this draws attention to your subject in your shot and keeps the viewers focus on it. It you are shooting people then look for a door way or a windo you can shoot through to create the frame. If you are outdoors then the frame could be trees or bushes or rocks. Just something that gives a border or frame to the shot. While understand that it is not always possible to find a frame you can even just look for a partial frame. Perhaps just the left and right edges or the top and bottom of the shot. Maybe even one side and the top, or one side and the bottom. Even this will improve the quality of your photo. Remember while shooting like this that you get your depth correct for maximum attention of the subject.
