TIPS on Right Camera Settings when shooting in Low Light Locations:


· Camera Mode: Aperture Priority.

· Aperture: f/5.6 (or the widest possible for your lens)

· ISO: 800.

· Shutter Speed (target): 1/160 sec.

· If you do have to use a flash, try to avoid the on-camera pop-up, it tends to flatten the appearance of the image due to the light hitting the subject directly, invest in an off- camera flash, and make sure to angel light so it is not directly in front of subject.

· Large Apertures let in more light
