Night Outdoor Photography

Night outdoor portrait photography is challenging due to the lack of ambient light. The dim light creates difficulty for the autofocusing system of cameras, making it slow and, sometimes, inaccurate. You can compare night outdoor photography to studio photography, except that the weather is more unpredictable for an outdoor photography; but at the same time, you can make good use of the existing surrounding light to create impactful art work.

Night outdoor portrait photography is a total different field and the results can be very eye-catching. Due to the dim ambient light, there's more room to create dramatic light as compared to shooting under the sun.

One of the most common questions (worries) that people ask me about a photoshoot is whether the ambient lighting at the dim location is bright enough to take the photographs. To most people, photography is only about using of a DSLR camera. Obviously, professional portrait photography is more than that - professional photographers invest and use artificial lighting when necessary to create better lighting.

There are different ways to do both night photography and photography at locations that are dim. One common way photographers do is to use fast lens with large aperture to absorb more light. For me, I prefer using of professional lighting so as to achieve the look that I want, including balancing of the light on my subject and the background; I also want to create beautiful soft light to showcase my subject(s) in a flattering way.

In most situations, using of a wide aperture lens isn't most ideal because there will be strong bokeh to blur out the background, which will defeat the purpose of doing the on location shoot. We want to do an outdoor photoshoot because we want to include interesting backgrounds, or otherwise, we might as well do the photoshoot at the comfort (air-conditioned, no walking, no insects, not affected by weather etc) of a photography studio with plain backdrops. Moreover, most of the time, the subject's face won't be lighted up properly and beautifully if a photographer were to depend mainly on the street lamps.

In many situations, it requires the use of artificial lighting to be incorporated into the existing ambient light, such as ceiling light, street lamps and other continuous light from the nearby buildings. You can play with props like fairy lights, candles and even make use of headlights from vehicles.

Since not many people can do a proper night outdoor portrait photoshoot due to limitation of skill and equipment, it makes night photography more unique.

I strongly believe in creating professional work, which the main subject should be lighted up properly and beautifully with flattering light. Both quantity and quality of light are important.
