When it comes to holidays, the nights become darker, but during the national holiday, each of us wants to take a beautiful photo with festive or urban decorations.
It seems that darkness is not an excellent egoism or a friend of natural landscapes, but there is no reason for excitement – it is quite realistic to put the patience to get high quality images in low light. Huawei experts have come up with four tips for getting fascinating photos in low light.
Extend exposure time
If there is an embarrassment after hearing the word "exposure time," you should not worry, because the term "exposure", which is often used by photographers, simply means the total amount of light that arrived at the camera sensor at the time the shot. Changing the exposure time can also change the illumination of the photo, so normally, when shooting in low light, exposure time needs to be prolonged as it helps you get better-quality shots.
Evening is also the best time to experience light in photography – things as casual as cars, city lights or festive greetings can turn into magical light lines or bright spots of light in the sky. The latest smartphone makers thought they should not be disturbed by time changes, for example, the Master AI image recognition feature embedded in Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphones can detect up to 1,500 different scenarios in 25 categories, including festive greetings. Therefore, when taking a photo, artificial intelligence will help optimize the color of the photo and thus save the time needed to adjust the exposure time.
Uses photo stabilization function
Capturing photos in low light conditions is always a challenge because when the subject is being photographed or the photographer's hand moves, the image becomes blurry. This is precisely why taking a photo in low light always checks if there is any solid surface to support or a phone holder.
One of the solutions that will eliminate unnecessary stress is the photo stabilization function. For example, the built-in AI Image Stabilization feature in the Huawei Mate 20 series allows you to capture clear images in low light conditions while using the night mode you can even contrast high contrast images so images are smooth without shaking.
Use natural light
Although the picture is usually better if there is too much light around, it is important to keep in mind that the flash should be particularly careful. As the light source comes from a specific and small point, the human skin in the photos illuminated by the flash may seem unnatural. This is due to the fact that the flash color is different from that of the surrounding light. That's why when shooting in low light you should try to use the available ambient light. If a person is being photographed, try positioning it in such a way that light strikes your face and always remember that even minor changes in lighting can have a significant effect on the final result.
For better image capture, Huawei experts recommend using the Master AI feature to match the most appropriate illumination to make the image as natural as possible. The 1500 different scenarios available on Huawei Mate 20 Pro are optimized to fit a specific set of parameters, for example by taking pictures of the sky, the MI will set the blue sky scene and increase the color saturation to make the sky even more impressive, as well as the portrait photography of Huawei. The AI Master built into the phone will help you find the most suitable camera settings so that the picture fits perfectly in the dark.
Do not be afraid to be creative
Darkness can prevent images from being illuminated without flaws, but with creative and abstract photography approaches, the results can be really fantastic! For example, exposure and live contrast from the photo can be extremely surreal. When taking pictures, you must take into account shapes and colors that can be isolated on a dark background – they will make the images mysterious and unbelievable in the eyes.
Creative photos can also be taken with the exposure time above – longer exposure times help freeze subjects in motion, creating different illusions, for example, a person running can be photographed with both feet raised and as if in the air or using a flashlight in the air you can write different words, for example, a desire for Latvia in a hundred years!
