Nighttime Shots

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, after a little bit of advice about taking pictures at night. I have the nikon D3200 camera and I'm struggling to take a good nighttime fish shot. Im getting allot of glare back off the fish, I'm guessing this is going from darkness straight to a flash from the camera, we've tried using head torches and things. What I'm wondering is there was some form of attachment that fits on the camera that acts as light/torch that gives a consistent light before the flash kicks in? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

I saw elsewhere someone mention Adam Penning talking about what he has been using recently.

 

Here's a post from his Facebook, where he mentions it.

 

Haven't tried it myself but may have a look at picking one up myself.

Otherwise, you're probably better with an external flash and diffuser to reduce the harshness of the light.

You will always get flash spots on the flank of the fish if the flash is directly above the lens. An off camera flash with diffuser is the best option. If that isn't available to you, turn the fish head end slightly towards the camera.

What about taping a 1 ply piece of tissue paper over the flash? Freedom to experiment for free is just another thing I Iike about digital.
