You need three things to shoot good low light photography. A tripod to keep the camera steady, how to control exposure because the camera may well get it wrong and how to set white balance.
Low light photography is usually about capturing the mood and atmosphere of a place and if you can't step in and take control of your camera it'll probably try to make the scene look like daylight.
Tom and I take you through the steps you need to take for shooting in low light - and Tom has a great sneaky trick up his sleeve involving a Grey Grad filter too.
7 Blocks of Photography was an ideal blend of the technical and creative aspects of photography. The notion that the picture begins with the photographer and not the camera is a powerful one.
The course, like the best educational tools, was particularly valuable because it allowed me to think not only about my pictures before I took them, but more importantly it enabled me to better assess why the photos that didn't work failed.
