Low light photography tips
Some of the things he mentions in the video include:
- Using image stabilization
- Use a large aperture
- Choose a higher ISO
- Making the camera stable

Editor’s note: Ironically, I was just in London in May and got a pretty similar shot to what Gavin shows in the video. I did, however, use a full-sized tripod. But notice how both his shots and mine are really purple? Interesting, thought it was just the light that night – apparently, London is purple.
