Low light photography — Photography podcast #40

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #40 talks about low light pho­tog­ra­phy. We‚ try hard to answer the fol­low­ing ques­tion by Andre‚ from Brazil and‚I also add‚a few other‚low light pho­tog­ra­phy tips includ­ing using fast lenses, acces­sories in low light pho­tog­ra­phy and‚the reduced tonal range in low light pho­tog­ra­phy.
Here’s Andre’s orig­i­nal ques­tion:‚ “Hello there, Marko! I just would like to sug­gest a pod­cast on the topic “low light pho­tog­ra­phy”. I’m pretty inter­ested in this topic and related sub­jects, such as tips for tak­ing pho­tographs in bad light sit­u­a­tions, how to pre­serve ambi­ent light when using flash, high ISO vs. dig­i­tal noise, meter­ing modes, tak­ing pic­tures at music con­certs, and so forth.”

    Thanks for the advice it was very help­ful. I am just start­ing to get into low light pho­tog­ra­phy and I totally agree with you about using street lamps or can­dles or lighters to illu­mi­nate the sub­ject. It makes the pic­ture have a great feel to them!
