I posted some photos on Facebook recently which went up completely unedited, just a couple hours after being taken, that were lit with a simple $3 torch. Most of the people that I’ve showed the photo don’t quite understand how you can get such great results with such basic gear, but I’m going to show you exactly how it’s done.

This is my fifth tutorial with the title suffix of ‘Shoot My Shot’ where I show you the steps that I take to produce a creative photo. In this tutorial I’m showing you how to create a cool effect of using waterdrops to magnify the objects beneath. There’s plenty of different ways that you can customise this to come up with your own original and creative results.
This post is all about showing you how to take a great photo, at night, in very low light. This may not sound particularly difficult, but I assure you that if you try to shoot in auto mode, or even a priority mode then you would massively struggle to produce the same results. It’s not hard when you know what you’re doing, and that’s exactly what I aim to achieve from this post.
The idea behind this series of tutorials is to walk you through the steps a photographer takes to reach their final shot, and the thought process behind those steps. There’s a long learning curve to taking a photo that you’ve never attempted before and this tutorial is all about helping you to cut out the time it takes to reach a shot you’re happy with.
I was recently asked to do some photography for a new blog that’s starting and my first assignment is to take some photos of them Go-Karting for one of their first blog posts. This post will show you the steps I took to get to my final photo.
In this new series entitled ‘Shoot My Shot’, i’m going to show you a photo that i’ve taken and the steps that I took to get there to help you understand how the Pro’s take their photos and to reassure you that we get just as many misses for just 1 hit!
