Simple Low-light Photography Tips

by Gina 03/31/2010

Taking pictures in dark lit areas can be really difficult. The photo can turn out blurry or they just look bad. Never fear, Photojojo is here with their latest tips and tricks to share with our users. We asked the DIY Photo bloggers, to offer their insights in a video series.

Their most recent video offers tips on adjusting your Cyber-shot or Alpha settings to get better low light pics. What I particularly enjoyed about watching this video is the location for the shoot. The video shows examples from a common night out. It’s nice because I can watch this video and apply it to a dinner party setting or even a celebration at a restaurant. Easy to follow and creative.

The video features an example photo shot using Sony’s Handheld Twilight Mode. This mode captures six images in a fraction of a second with one press of the shutter, and combines the data from all six to create a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise. With these modes, you can capture images in low light, without flash, beyond the capability of traditional cameras. A few Sony Cyber-shot cameras that have Handheld Twilight Mode include the TX7, TX5 and WX1 among others.

And for those who still cling onto old school film, there is even a fun trick you can do to make the most out of those film canisters.

Be sure to check out the entire video series
