Low light truly is the bugaboo for the digital photographer.

Low light can be dealt with. However, each alternative has its drawbacks.

  • We can use some means of support for the camera, so that we don’t get camera shake.
  • We can use a wide aperture. However, this has limitations as the aperture can only go so wide and depth of field may be a factor.
  • We can use an electronic flash. Many times this isn’t practical or creates a look that is creatively dysfunctional for our picture.
