Photographing people at night without using a flash is a great way to get some exciting photos. Many people feel that once it gets dark you have to use a flash in order to like your subject.  By using natural lighting provided by signs, streetlights, interior lighting, and other sources, you can add a great deal of interest to your night people photos. The advantage of using natural lighting is that it will add information on where they are, gives a sense of natural not posed photos, eliminates redeye problems, and makes for a much more interesting photo.  There also may be times when using a flash, will not be permitted or would be a distraction.

There are basically two types of people photography, portraiture and candid photos. For night portraits your subject will be posing which provides control over the movement of the subject.  Control of the lighting is done by placement of the subject. For candid photos you do not have the control over the subject so you must adjust your camera settings and control the lighting to get a fast enough shutter speed to avoid unwanted blur.

For shooting portraits and night, you will need a sturdy tripod and a cable release to avoid movement of the camera while taking a long exposure.  You can shoot in extremely low light by keeping the shutter open for times of up to several seconds.

The elderly members of our communities are some of our greatest assets. They have seen the roar of change, the cruelty or war, the upset of recession, and the power in our humanity at work. Photographing them gives us a chance to capture the history they have witnessed and participated in but there are some distinctive challenges that are paired with reaping these benefits. Here are some tips to make photographing elderly people an overall smoother experience.

Unlike kids and teenagers, older people did not grow up in the world of hand held technology and digital cameras. While many have learned how to hunt and peck their way through an email, some are still uncomfortable in front a DSLR cameras firing at 10 frames per second. Shooting with an 85mm lens or greater gives the photographed a little bit of space from the camera. This becomes especially important when you are hoping they will interact with other people.

While it is always important to communicate with the people you are photographing, having a conversation with the older generation is important for a number of reasons. The first is that they are more likely to be comfortable in front of the camera if they are comfortable with you as a person. If you already know them, it gives you a chance to explain the timeline and how you operate as a photographer. If you don’t, it gives them a chance to learn a little bit about you and that familiarity will instill confidence in your collective goal to get the perfect shot. It’s also gives you time to learn about them as people and draw from their history for inspiration.
