The flashlights are the best ally of the photographers who work at night. This is a tip from our photographer friends, in addition to the hundreds of tips you can see on the photographer’s Blog, when it comes to making good night photography, it’s always a good idea to help yourself with a powerful LED flashlight.

Using the flash of the mobile phone can serve even trouble, but the battery is spent soon and is not very effective. The right thing is to help yourself with a flashlight to focus. When it’s night and we want to frame or focus on infinity, using a flashlight placed on a tripod we can light an object in the foreground and focus it. By gently moving the flashlight we can also glimpse the limits of the framing.

Highlighting elements in night photography with LED flashlight, can be done with a powerful flashlight, with which we can give light to highlight buildings, plants or rocks to give a touch of light while we have the camera with an exhibition of several minutes.
