DAY TO NIGHT IN A FLASH

Turning day to night for photography is not so common, but Gavin Hoey shows how through different steps we can turn day into night for better photography.

Step 1 – UNDEREXPOSURE

Flash and manual mode go hand in hand, so it is suggested to switch over the manual.
Aperture – F/4
ISO- 1/20th.
It will give a shot that is dark and not black.

Step 2 – FLASH

Set the flash meter to 1/80th sec, 200 ISO. Adjust the flash power until you hit f/4 on the meter.

Step 3 – MOONLIGHT

Switch to Tungsten or Incandescent white balance or it can be changed in Lightroom / Photoshop Camera RAW.

Step 4 –  MIST

It helps to cover anything that is not needed in the background. You can use smoke grenades.

With these steps, you can easily turn day photography into night photography.
