Taking pictures with your smartphone at night can be a disappointment; you will face low light situation with extreme contrast and add noise. But luckily, you can turn around with a few tips to see how it works.


1. When shooting in a low light try shutter speed. With cameras you can do so by setting the right exposure but with the smartphone you have to use the apps. Manual camera is an app that let you control how long the shutter on your phone stays open.


2. The best way to avoid blurry images is to keep the phone stable during a long exposure. You will want to use a mobile tripod or place it somewhere to keep it stable.


3. One thing that comes out to play at night: car lights. Set your phone to a long exposure and frame a road busy with cars. It's an idea that can be infinitely varied: boats on a bay, cars crossing a bridge, or even planes flying overhead.


4. The dark nights can be your backdrop in front of which you can separate objects and people. It will look your pictures more mysterious and amazing.


5. Flash isn't meant for the night photography but if you have to use it, try using some filters or tissue paper to soften the light. You can also use your flash to add some drama to the object close to you.


6. Use some external source of light rather than just relying on street lights. There are tons of amazing mobile accessories available these days.


7. Give your image a finishing touch with a professional editing app. You can use Adobe Photoshop for all kind of effects and photo editing capabilities.


8. Low light and high ISOs can lead to noise in your photo. But a little grain doesn't ruin it: Edit your photo to turn those flaws around. For example, grain is often valued by photographers for its dramatic effect. Got a photo that's too grainy and doesn't have great colors? Just make it black and white, maybe brighten it up a little and you'll be emulating a very classic photographic style.


9. Take advantage of the extreme lighting as backlight. It is just a great way to create a nice visual effect.


10. You can't really get the street lights, shops slogans, bar lights at day time. Take advantage of these by getting more creative.
