Is this you? You don’t want to miss a potential photo thinking, ‘I can’t retake this, I better take lots of photos’, so you end up with a card full of duplicates and constantly put off processing them, because there’s just too damn many! They’re also not that interesting, and you’re having…
I’ve stated before on multiple occasions that I don’t use photoshop to process my images, but I do use Apple’s Aperture to make some minor adjustments to them. It took me a while from when I first started out, to really understand how to fully utilise the software and to work out what all the major settings did. Hopefully, with the help of this tutorial, you should learn exactly what each step does and how to use them to your advantage.
It’s not all bad, and there’s no reason to think that good photography can’t be done on an iPhone, it’s purely the effects that these apps are having on the mind of a potential photographer. People start to think that because it looks quirky and old looking, that it’s good photography, which is holding back potential greatness from photographers.
This post is all about showing you how to take a great photo, at night, in very low light. This may not sound particularly difficult, but I assure you that if you try to shoot in auto mode, or even a priority mode then you would massively struggle to produce the same results. It’s not hard when you know what you’re doing, and that’s exactly what I aim to achieve from this post.
