Between the night sky, campfire hangs, and all the other stuff that goes on after dark, there are probably lots of things you’ve always wanted to be able to photograph. But figuring out things like aperture sizes, shutter speeds, and exposure times is complicated. Is there a way normal people can take good nighttime photos on their smartphones? Here, Wes Siler solicits the help of professional photographer Stuart Palley to show you how. Stuart has made a name for himself capturing nighttime photos of wildfires across the west. So, if anyone can improve the quality of your photos after sunset, it’s him. Spoiler: you don’t need a fancy camera.
