A Collection of Images from Travel Photography In A Day For Dummies

You can still find color in the dark

Even when you're using a tripod and you have your ISO50 set to f/3.2, shooting in the dark can be challenging. These two colorful images in London’s Trafalgar Square were taken in the late evening. Although these shots were taken with the same camera, they had very different ISO settings. For the image on the left, a tripod was used, and the camera was set to ISO 50 with a very long exposure of 3.2 seconds. The image on the right was taken with a hand-held camera at ISO 4000 (which is at or above the highest range of the average point-and-shoot camera) with a shutter speed of 1/60 second. The quality isn’t as good with higher ISO ranges and features significantly more digital noise.
