How to take a night photograph

  1. Place Camera on a solid platform, or tripod.
  2. Set camera to manual mode.
  3. Keep iso below 400 for best quality.
  4. Manually set the apeture and the shutter.
  5. A longer shutter speed (ex. 15 seconds) will allow more light in.
  6. A wider apeture (ex. 5.4) will also allow more light in.
  7. Adjust the apeture and the shutter for correct exposure.
  8. Manually set focus, in low light auto focus might not adjust properly.
  9. Take the picture. Depending on the light source it will take a couple of seconds.
