How to click pictures of your family at night?

Last Updated :

Moms who have a photo-fetish can always be seen whipping out their cameras or phone to click pictures, no matter what time of the day or night it is. Many get by with brilliant results during the day as light is good and they don’t have to adjust the camera settings much.

But at night, one needs to pay attention as light is low and it is difficult to get sharp pictures. So clicking photos at family get-togethers, outdoor parties or night-time camping trips should be done by keeping these tips in mind:

1. Adjust the shutter speed to low to ensure longer exposure. A longer exposure period ensures that the camera has enough time to capture the image in low or dim light.

2. During night change your aperture setting from f/16 to f/4 or f/5.6 so that you can capture better night shots as compared to the shots taken in f/16.

3. Clicking pictures a sunset? Then do check the white balance of your camera also. This will help you capture the true colours of the sky and the surroundings as well.

4. Use a tripod since pictures will be blurry if camera shakes even a little bit. So to shoot good and sharp pictures in low light or dim surroundings, use a tripod to keep the camera steady.

5. You might not be able to capture action pictures very well. Dim lighting will cause the picture to shake (or become blurry) and grainy. So avoid taking pictures of kids running around or the likes. Reserve those pictures for daytime.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
