Rediscover the outdoors with night-time photography

Arts & Creativity

Nature looks a little more magical at night: the moon reflecting on a still lake, the lamplit shadows of tall trees across a city park, or a glimpse of a bat swooping across the dusky sky.

On your next evening outing, try your hand at some night time nature photography. Focusing your lens on our world after dark can help you discover new and surprising things about our planet–and recharge your commitment to keeping it healthy and beautiful in the process.

All you really need to start is to find the “Night” mode on your smartphone camera. Experts suggest bringing a small tripod along to keep your shot steady, but you can also prop your phone on a branch. And find a bright source of light for contrast. Maybe one of your creative photos will encourage others to embark on a nighttime adventure soon!
