The night scene under the neon lights is one of the scenery that everyone likes very much. The lights on the street lights on the roadside, if you can make good use of these, you can take a dreamy spot effect and make the photos more romantic. But how can we shoot beautiful night scenes? In this issue of shooting tips, I will teach you how to use the camera to shoot gorgeous light spot visual effects.
For the environment of the photo scene, you can choose from busy or many night lights Places, such as flyovers, urban streets, or roofs.
The three elements of dream spot: camera distance + focal length + aperture
Large aperture + longer focal length + shooting method closer to the subject, so that the blur effect will be better, and the light spots of night scenes will be more beautiful. Of course, in addition to a high-sensitivity SLR camera, you also need a large aperture lens. For example, the RF50mm F1.2 L USM used in this article.
The aperture size is a key to the light spot, in the zoom and light source In the case of the same distance from the camera, the larger the aperture, the larger the spot that can be taken; otherwise, the smaller.
1. Select the aperture priority mode and use the maximum aperture or a little smaller than the large aperture. I personally prefer to use a smaller aperture appropriately, because In this way, there will be a relatively balanced relationship between the background blur and the sharpness of the image quality.
2. Select Auto for ISO, choose MF to focus manually, turn the focus ring to make the background light source out of focus, if there is a subject or person to be highlighted, it will Focus on the subject and shoot, you can take a charming out-of-focus bokeh.

2. Carve out a star shape in the middle of this round piece of paper.
