Often interesting objects come in a situation where we had to shoot in low-light conditions and we do not want (or can not) use a flash, but we want to produce images that stay sharp. Objects like the city view at night is beautiful, the music concert in the evening or a party atmosphere unfortunately passed away without a camera in action. Here are tips to still produce an optimum picture:
1.Tripod or monopod. The tools are the most reliable and convenient tripod or monopod.

2.If a tripod is not available, keep the camera steady by using the surrounding environment, for example by leaning the body to tempok, resting the camera to the stairs and others.

3.Try to use the aperture as much as possible, if you have a limit lens largest aperture of f/2.8, f/2.8 aperture wear

4.If the above two tricks were not enough, raise your ISO until the shutter speed the camera we reach at least 1/60 (on some cameras can use the latest generation of ISO settings up to 1000 and above can still produce a low noise)

5.When using the four tips, you should enable High ISO Noise Reduction feature in the camera to reduce the noise, or the following five options the better (and more expensive) are:

6.Or you can skip-5 tips to using noise reduction software to reduce noise in post production stage. Software like Noise Ninja, Imagenomic Noiseware or Nik's Dfine pretty powerful to tame noise in the final result of our photos. If you are using Lightroom 4 to organize a collection of photos, Lightroom has a feature highly advanced noise reduction.

7.Read the rules regarding the optimum shutter speed: if you use XMM focal length, shutter speed you should be above 1 / X seconds. More details read here.
