Modern cameras and lenses have made it more possible than ever to take great photos even when there is very little available light. Still, it takes a lot of careful technique and awareness to get good photos. This excellent video tutorial discusses some of the most common mistakes photographers make when taking low-light images and how to avoid or correct them and get the best shots possible.
Coming to you from Kai W, this helpful video tutorial details a range of mistakes photographers often make when taking low-light photos and how to avoid them. The most common mistake I made when first starting out was using too slow of a shutter speed. Of course, we all like to keep our ISOs as low as possible in order to keep our image quality as high as possible, but if your photo is blurry because of camera shake or motion blur, there is not much you can do to save it. On the other hand, using a higher ISO will allow you to keep your shutter speed fast enough to get a sharp image, and you can always apply noise reduction in post if needed. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
