One of the toughest forms of photography, to a great extent is dependent on external components like light and shade to be perfect. Photographers who are passionate and take this art form seriously need to know the magic of light and shadow. Because cameras work in the light, it's always been a challenge to take good photos during the night-time.

Night time offers brilliant photographic moments. However, the poor light conditions make the photographs look grainy and odd colored. With advanced hardware for cameras, it has become quite easy for the photographers to click quality photos even in the dark!

Here are some photography tips to help you shoot in the dark conditions:

Use larger lenses: Large aperture lenses work quite well in dark conditions. However, one has to remember, while using these lenses the ISO level needs to be low. This also keeps the focus on the subject hence, blurring the background and surroundings.

Use Drive Mode: Taking photographs is a row in the dark can get you that one perfect photo you've been waiting for. You have to enable the drive mode available in the menu.

Use Tripod: Ideal for outdoor and indoor shoots that involves stationary subjects, tripods are the perfect aperture to shoot at night. This helps you to avoid blurry photos.

Use Flash: Flash is a must for night-time photographs. Flash illuminates the subject of photograph and makes the photo bright. While shooting indoors, focus the flash to the ceiling to reflect the light on the subject therefore, illuminating it with a soft light.

Wait for the Right Time: There is no point in hurrying when it comes to photography. Wait for the right moment to get the best click. It's advised to let the subject settle down for sometime before you shoot it.

The Subject Should Face the Source of Light: It's important the subject faces the major source of light. The light needs to fall on the subject evenly. You can also use reflectors to reflect the light on the subject's face.
