Battle Low Light Conditions

Most of the Halloween events are held in dark and smokey locations, where brightness are adjusted to a minimum. That’d mean something all photographers  find hard to deal with – Low Light Conditions. Fret not, you just found the perfect solution right here:

(a) Turn up your ISO – A higher ISO is accompanied by a higher sensitivity of your image sensor towards light. However, this is captured at the expense of more grainy photos (Which can be fixed easily with Photoshop).

(b) Switch to aperture priority mode – Adjust all available functions to allow the maximum light captured in your lens.

(c) Slow down Shutter Speed – Shutter speed is inversely proportional to the amount of light. You may want to ensure that there all forms of movement are eliminated as it will turn out blur on your photograph. (On a brighter note, it may let your shot come off creepier than before!)
