Come fare Street Photography di notte [SUB EN]


Hi to all friends, welcome to this new video today we talk about Street photography at night so we’ll see how to set up our camera but we will also do a field test we see everything after the introduction when we want to do Street photography at night we have to take into account two factors: the first factor is the low light because it is night, the second factor is the moving subjects. In fact, photographing landscapes at night is not the same as doing Street photography. in night landscapes there is a still scene so we can better manage the shutter speed of our camera on the contrary, in Street photography the subjects constantly change on the scene and therefore we must have greater foresight what we will try to do essentially will be to let in as much light as possible on the sensor to have low shutter speeds and avoid camera shake To do this we can use different modes: the first way is to try to increase the ISO but we will try not to overdo it to avoid digital noise so I advise you not to exceed 1600 ISO. The other mode is to use lenses with a very large aperture to allow more light to enter. In this way we will surely be able to lower the shutter speed. Another element that we will try to use will be the light of the environment that is, street lights, windows and everything that can help us have a scene as bright as possible. Obviously in Street photography we will not use the flash because we photograph subjects that are not posing but are subjects of the road. So the flash is absolutely excluded. Let’s make a final consideration about the exposure meter settings. Almost all use the Matrix mode that is the mode that allows your light meter to make a general analysis of the light present on the scene giving you mostly correct exposure data. In some cases, in street photography at night the percentage of darkness is very large therefore the reading with the Matrix mode could be wrong and the result is an under exposure. In that case I recommend using the Spot mode which allows the sensor to make a point analysis and limited only to the part of the focus that is the brightest part we want to enhance in our photo. In this way you will get a more correct exposure. Even in Street photography at night there are particularly bright photos for example, subjects particularly close to a shop window, our composition is totally illuminated. In this case the Matrix mode is correct. So pay attention to the composition of the photo you need to take and choose the meter mode to use correctly. In any case, don’t be afraid: if your photo is slightly underexposed you can recover it in post production. After we have analyzed the settings to be used at night we can prepare our bag and go out on the street and put these concepts into practice. As always, find in description all the material I use in my photo sessions. Let’s see what to put in my new K&F Concept bag I will use my Nikon d7200 camera I will use the brightest lens I have available: a 35mm Nikkor It has a maximum aperture of 1.8 Here we are on the road ready for the field test here we are right in the city center there is enough lighting because there are showcases and public lighting so I will use the Matrix mode hoping to take some pictures more freely and we will be less conditioned by darkness then I will move to the more isolated and less enlightened streets From the center I moved here to the side streets where there is less light Here there are only street lamps and no shop windows here I will use the Spot mode. I will look for a particularly bright area waiting for the passage of ideal subjects these streets are dimly lit But they are really beautiful and suggestive for taking pictures at night Guys I hope that with this video you have more elements in hand to do Street photography at night Exit on the street tried to use from these concepts with me See you at the next video, again here, on the Street Level Photography channel. Bye
