How to photograph Glow in the Dark products?
« on: September 05, 2017, 05:28:26 AM »
Used to have problems taking photos of glow products with my DSLR, because the shutter button will not work under low light. Switch to manual mode and the button will work.

But in manual mode, the images suck.

Here are some general guidelines for getting good photos of your glow-in-the-dark creations:

   
  • Use a tripod with a remote shutter release or the camera's timer.
  • Turn off the flash.
  • Set the camera mode to "M" (Manual)
  • Open your Aperture to the widest (F5.6 or wider like F4).
  • Focus the image and then switch the focus to Manual. We do not want it to hunt for focus in the dark.
  • Set a slow shutter speed between 3 to 7 seconds
  • Charge your glow in the dark stuff.
  • Switch off the light and start shooting in the dark.
