BRISBANE CITY LIGHTS: NIGHT CITY PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

This beautiful, electric blue illumination of the building
was captured without using night mode.



BRISBANE CITY LIGHTS , NIGHT LEISURE STROLL VIDEO




An opportunity to practice panning while taking night photos and videos. Turning on your camera's 'night mode' does not necessarily produce the best results. 

If you use your judgement and move and tilt the camera slightly to get the exposure you like for your night shots this tends to produce better results. This is because you can capture the subtleties in lighting better than if you rely on the automatic 'night mode' which tends to produce flat results or over exposures.

Underexposure for night videos does not necessarily produce bad results. With night videos you can get away with this and in fact it's the only way to achieve a particular, colour mood or ambience that would be lost if your exposure was 'normal', or if you shoot in monochromous 'night mode' colour. 

If the resulting video clip is still too dark you can edit with the brightness and contrast tool using your own video editor software or using similar tools or auto-fix on Youtube via "Enhancement".

QUICK TIP: It's easier to rescue an underexposed video rather than an overexposed one. Keep testing the limits of your device - if you devise a fine touch it may perform better than an expensive model that has not been fully or properly utilised or mastered!
