    Night Photography



    Hello, can you help me with my night photogrpahy. When I tried to shoot a subject it turn out that the light specially on the lamp post are scattered all over. I want to have this kind of result wherein the colors and the lights are crisp.



    Notes: Image is not mine.

    Why post the image if it's not yours? I'll just assume it is yours because it matches the problem.

    This is probably caused by long shutter speeds, where camera shake blurred the whole image.
    Additionally, the camera exposed correctly for the background for most of the scene at the expense blowing the lights on the lamp posts. There's no getting away with that (unless you know using RAW or HDR work).

    Solution 1: Use a tripod
    Solution 2: Change ISO to it's highest setting

    Hi Adrian, I posted the image so that everybody know what result I wanted.

    What could be the speed for the above image?

    well if you post your shot then it'll be easier to identify the problem. Check the exif data fo the image so you'd know what settings the photog used.

    Re: Night Photography

    You probably have a modern DSLR using a kit lens and judging from the photo, you should use ISO 3200.
    Yet, you still won't get the sharp image that you want as the image will have color artifacts/noise when you use ISO 3200.
    Get a tripod or put your camera on something stable to get sharp images without changing the ISO.

    why not go for long exposure? Going for a higher aperture would and longer shutter speed would help and also using a tripod and setting you camera to timer if you dont have a remote for your camera. hope this helps
