Some pieces of advice for shooting in the twilight and at night
The background does not almost distract in the twilight. Not everything in the frame is illuminated, but what you see in the viewfinder is very close to what you can get if you set the exposure properly. During such taking pictures people are not usually the objects for being in photographs. Passersby are barely visible - just a slight blur, of course, if you do not want to catch them in the picture using the flash. Automobiles are displayed as lines of red and yellow colors. The sky plays with the lights of the electric apparatus, especially when low-lying clouds reflect them.
In comparison with other types of photography, night photography does not require a large quantity of equipment. The most important things are represented in the list below:
1. Sturdy tripod.
2. Remote control of the shutter release. In most cases you can just use the self timer. The main thing is to avoid camera shaking in the moment the shutter release.
3. Flashlight for illuminating cameras buttons and dial plates.
4. If it is necessary, a portable flash with a reserve of batteries.
