Tools for Low Light Photos

Photos in low light have always been a challenge. Stage, gymnasium and athletic fields often are poorly or unevenly illuminated. A camera with a "fast" lens with low f-stop like f2.8 allows pictures to be taken at shutter speeds that allow action stopping photos in adverse conditions. Now for the first time ever, Wolfe's offers cameras with powerful zoom lenses and a fixed f2.8 aperture. This means even at 10x close up shots, the lens allows over 200% more light to the image sensor than conventional cameras. These cameras even allow room to attach an external flash. Get better images with telephoto flash in really dark places again thanks to the constant f2.8 lens speed.

Powerful Flash Option Valuable

In some situations the fast lens is still not the perfect answer. Using flash can fill in shadows and correctly record color tones better than available light. In many situations the flash creates better detail in dark clothing and room settings. Uneven light makes parts of the images dark and ill defined. A good flash provides a balanced image. The ProMaster FL190 is particularly useful. It bounces and swivels so you can direct light for a very natural looking photo.
