Author's Note

I'm one of those people that has always loved both the artistry and the tech behind all types of photography. In spite of that, I've never spent a lot of time exploring photography as a hobby or professionally. Working on this article, though, I've been inspired to take more photos, particularly in beautiful low-light scenarios. I've learned a lot from the research, and I hope the reader looks forward to trying out these tips as much as I do.
