Photo Tip: Twilight and evening are captivating times of day to shoot HDR pictures because the range and quality of light are different. Use the lowest ISO you can, and make three different exposures of the same scene by adjusting shutter speed (one underexposed, one overexposed, and one correctly exposed).

Automatic focus in low light settings can be tricky, so focus manually and use a high f-stop to get good depth of field.
