Tools in night photography

External lighting.

Sometimes you’ll want to draw attention to or simply lighten up an important part of the foreground which is too dark. you’ll need a powerful light or flash to provide enough light to illuminate the subjects.

 

Imagination.

Tools lie all around us in everyday objects to help us make our work better in this; I’ve used bicycle lamps, lampposts and newspaper boxes to get it done.
