How To Take Good Photos
Buildings: Colour of dark

- In dark or dim conditions, our eyes adapt to the low light by losing colour discrimination, so it often appears rather dull to us, but not to the camera.
- If there is any light at all, it is worth making an exposure. Your camera will see far more colours, and with their full intensity, than you can.
- If you use a tripod in low light your images will be sharper and higher in quality.
- Do not fully correct for the yellow-red colour cast of artificial lights as you could lose the atmosphere and mood.
- This dance hall in Northern Ireland, has colourful lights, but the image fully brings out the strength and the variety of hues.
