Low-Light and Night Options
With today?s digital cameras, taking photographs in a very low-light situation is easy. If you want to photograph the night stars you need a tripod, a cable release, and a camera with ISO settings of 1000 or higher. Open your wide-angle lens as wide as it goes (f/2.8, f/3.5, and so on) and set the shutter speed to 30 seconds, if you want to shoot the stars as point of light, and adjust the ISO to give you the correct exposure. If you want to shoot star trails then you want to set the camera to a Bulb setting (on the shutter speed) and use exposures of 5 to 30 minutes (or longer if you want very long streaks). Because you will be exposing so much, longer ISOs of 100 to 400 will work.

High Dynamic Range
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a technique that allows you to capture the full dynamic range (brightness range) of a scene that has too much contrast to be exposed properly on your digital sensor. In simple terms, you take a series of exposures capturing detail in the shadows and in the highlights by varying your exposure settings. When shooting for HDR, it really helps to use a tripod to keep the images aligned properly. You also want to change the shutter speed and leave the aperture fixed so the depth of field does not change in the picture. It is also a good idea to turn off auto-focus and Auto White Balance to maintain consistency. Once you capture enough images to have all the exposure information you need, you then process the images through special software that takes the best parts of the exposures from each individual frame and combines them all into one image, giving you a picture similar to what your eye sees and not the restricted version that a camera sees.

Graduated Neutral Density Filter
Useful for balancing your lighting ratios, especially when you are photographing with a darker foreground and lighter background. A graduated neutral density filter has a gradient of density that reduces light at the top of the filter and tapers to clear, having no effect at the bottom of the filter. If the sky is much brighter than the foreground, you can use this filter to even out the lighting ratios between the bright sky and the darker foreground. Because the filter is dark at one end and clear at the other, you place the dark end over the sky or cliff face to reduce the brightness of that area and even out the light so that the bright sky or cliff and the darker foreground can both be exposed properly in one exposure.
