Halloween Tip

Students…It’s Halloween.  Set your camera to portrait NIGHT MODE on the scene dial.  Be very steady. This is a great way to capture the halloween witches and ghouls tonight with lit pumpkins behind them.  You will find that your flash will illuminate your subjects properly (within 12 feet) while your shutter speed will be slow enough to pick up the pumpkin lights.

If your camera allows you to set your ISO in this mode, make sure to set it high (try ISO 800 or 1600). This will help your pictures from having movement as long as you are steady. If you own a tripod, set it up at your front door and your photos should have no problems with movement as long as your subjects are still.  The best time of night is before the sun goes down completely for this night mode setting.

Happy Shooting!
