I'm Paul at Paul Steven Photography, and I'm here to show you how to do nighttime photography. Basically, for nighttime photography, you want to use a tripod. And why do you want to use a tripod? Because we are working with very slow shutter speeds. Our shutter speed is about five seconds. And basically, a rule of thumb is the average person should not hold, handhold a camera below 125th of a second, 125th. And we have it on five seconds, so just to show you an example, we are going to aim it at the building. Push the shutter, four, three, two, and the picture is taken. And we have a nice exposure of our building at night with very little light. And that's how you do nighttime photography.
