WHAT GEAR?
A tripod is essential for camera stability as we don’t want blurry photos. A remote is also worth using if you have one but if you don’t then use the self timer.

COMPOSITION / WHICH LENS?
Arrive early to set up, compose your photo and do some test shots. Use the widest lens you have (smallest focal length for example 18mm).

FOCUS
Auto focus struggles in low light so turning off Auto Focus and using Manual focus may be the best option.

CAMERA SETTINGS
1. Shutter priority
In shutter priority you control the shutter speed and ISO and the camera looks after Aperture.
Select S (Tv on Canon cameras) on the camera mode dial.
Change ISO to 400.
Select a shutter speed of 5 seconds (this is shown as 5” on your camera).

Take a photo.

Experiment with different shutter speeds, 4 – 10 seconds works well.

1. Manual mode
In Manual mode you control the shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
Select M on the camera mode dial.
Change ISO to 400.
Select a shutter speed of 5 seconds (this is shown as 5” on your camera).
Change aperture (f number) to f11.

Take a photo.

If your photo is too dark open up the aperture by changing the f number from f11 to a smaller number.
If photos look too bright close the aperture by selecting a larger f number.

Experiment with different shutter speeds, 4 – 10 seconds works well.

Take lots of photos – have fun and enjoy.
