    would love to see a night photography workshop..sans flash..had some issues recently shooting in low natural light..i know lens is part of my problem, but i've gone as far as i can with ISO, shutter speed and my lens' capability for f/stop..

    Yep. Low light is 90% a factor of your lens. <2/f is the best. That and practicing hand holding. Oh and under exposing a bit and lifting the exposure in post a full stop is another trick in a pinch

      Actual night photography or low light shooting?

      If I don't give you a hard time at some point then it just means I don't like you. It's all fun and games.

        What are you working with? What are you trying to shoot? As mentioned above, lens makes a HUGE difference. After that comes the high ISO capability (image quality) of your body. After that is just dealing. Use a tripod if possible. Minimize movement of subject.

        Throw a little light. If it doesn't come back, it probably fell off...
        Nikon D80 (nicknamed Cylopsoid)
        Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 Lovin' it. I could glue it to my camera and be happy.
        Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 It's the older model w/o the AF motor and it focuses FAST. It's just like the 17-50, only longer.
