Hi.  I was looking for someone in your Meet Up group who may be interested in taking the pictures for me.  I would be willing to negotiate a fee for the service.
Do you know of anyone who would be interested?
Thank you,

Hi Karen, We at the Complete Photographer have been working on night photography for a couple of months and will continue through the end of the year.  The challenge with night photography is the low light levels.  The solution is to use higher ISO, take longer exposures, use a faster lens (F/1.2) or a combination of these. Higher ISOs generate more noise.  The first step is to try higher ISOs until you feel the noise is unacceptable.  Opening the lens up to it's widest aperture may reduce the depth of field unacceptably.  Once the aperture and the ISO has been selected then the exposure can be selected.  Any exposure more than about 1/30 sec requires a tripod or other firm base . . . no hand holding!  This includes the shutter release.  If a remote shutter release is not available then you can use the 2 sec or 10 sec time delay to eliminate the trigger vibrations. A tripod is a worthwhile acquisition.  There are many good ones available for less than $50 at camera stores and many retailers like Walmart, Frys, Target, etc. In short, if the pictures are coming out too dark then the sensor isn't getting enough light.  Exposures of seconds to many minutes are not uncommon with night photography. Hope this helps! Thanks . . . Guy On 10/12/2011 9:34 AM, Meetup wrote:

Looking for a Photographer

Hello, I want to get just a couple of photos of the landscape lighting in my back yard at night and was wondering if any of you are interested in night time photography. I've tried it with my camera but the shots are just too dark. I was hoping to get the shots soon while the plants are still in bloom. If you can assist, please contact me at [address removed]. I live in Plano. Thank you, Karen
