Watch part one of Night Photography on VSCO’S Academy, where Max and Katy teach how to create the best nighttime photos using flash.
Experiment with night photography and try shooting subjects up close using a flash. Using random convenient store things/food the VSCO Academy team shows how to simply recreate solid clear pictures by using the flash on your phone. When shooting at night it’s common to end up with blurry shots. So why does this happen in low light? When there’s not enough light in the scene, the only way the camera can expose the shot correctly and ensure it doesn’t look too dark is to use a slower shutter speed. Shutter speed refers to the amount of time that the camera’s shutter remains open. The longer the shutter is open for, the more light enters the lens and reaches the camera’s sensor. So when there’s not much light in the scene, the shutter has to stay open for longer to allow enough light in to get a decent exposure. The problem with this is that any movement during that longer exposure time will appear as a motion blur. So if you move the iPhone even slightly, you’ll end up with a blurry shot caused by camera shake. Peep these simple tips and tricks.
