4. Select a high shutter speed
Sensing a pattern here? With low light photography, the solution is often to turn up your settings. The shutter speed is the length of time your camera is open during exposure. To take crisp, blur-free photos in low light, set your shutter speed to a fraction of the focal length. So, if you’re using a 50mm lens, choose a shutter speed of 1/50 a second. If you’re using a 30mm lens, go for a 1/30. Any slower than this, and your photos might come out blurry - especially if you’re shooting moving subjects.
Top Tip: When using slower shutter speeds, it is a good idea to mount your camera to a tripod to eliminate camera shake.
