Tips for night photography
Radio interview source: Scott Little, photographer, Meredith Corporation
On a comfortable evening when everything's quiet and settled down, I like to sit outside and watch the beautiful white owl that perches on our barn roof. He makes an interesting silhouette against the night sky, and I think it would be cool to have a picture of him, but I'm not sure how to do that in the dark.
Most digital cameras don't allow you to manually set the shutter speed for a longer exposure time, although some have a specific setting for low-light pictures.
Photographer Scott Little says a piece of equipment that's a must for nighttime photography is a tripod.
"A tripod prevents shake of the camera," Little says. "If you do have a camera that has nighttime photography settings, there are still going to be long exposures and if you hand-hold it, you're going to get blurred images."
Keep the shutter button held down during the entire exposure.
