Ditch the Flash at Night

If you are using your digital camera on Automatic, then when the light is dim in your scene, the camera pops up the built-in flash to provide additional light. But this can ruin the effect you are trying to capture.

Instead, temporarily turn off the flash and put the camera on a tripod or other stationary surface. Then when you take the photo, the camera will use a longer exposure time to record the effect of the light as you see it.
