…Time of day is just one of those tricky…things that's going to effect how you configure your camera.…Now when I'm shooting night time…photography I often go with longer exposures.…Things look better, it's going to let more light into…the camera, you're going to cut down on ISO problems.…And you can even get that starburst effect that just…lengthens out the light for things like architectural details or highlights.…And this tends to look great but when I'm shooting…things in bright sunlight I may have to stop things down.…
If I want to get that longer exposure to have the clouds really streaking in the…sky, well then I'm going to need to attach a neutral density filter to the camera.…You really have to just be very careful to think about getting proper exposure.…And typically I favor shooting slightly underexposed.…So really balance this out.…Make sure you find a way to not crank up the ISO.…High ISO is fine when you're shooting individual stills but if…you've got a little bit of noise you could reduce it.…
