NEW VIDEO: Night Photography - Tips and Tricks

One of my favorite times to take photos is after the sun has dropped below the horizon. Not only is it more challenging to shoot during this time, but the images can be really dynamic.  Since so many of you have told me you prefer videos explaining my techniques, I just completed a new video on this subject.

In this new video, I share my tips and tricks with all of you so that you can capture great night shots of your own.

Here are some of my favorite night photos, which are featured in the video...

The Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, England

Old Town Boston

Cologne, Germany during the blue hour

The Bay Bridge in San Francisco (my home town)

The Sydney Opera House during the VIVID light show

Rolling the zoom during the exposure in New York City (explained in the video)

Great video with some unique tips! I have always stayed away from night photography, but I may try it now. My concern is "noise" in the photograph. Does a longer exposure reduce the potential noise factor or is it still going to be an issue?

No - just keep your ISO to something below ISO 800 and you should be fine.
