    I was wondering if anyone knew what the best settings are on a Canon Rebel when taking shots under black light. I had to take these pictures of a band signing and because of the black lighting I couldn't get the settings right. The Images came out horrible most of them totally unsalvagable. Any suggestions?

    no I didn't I just kept playing with the shutter speed and aperture. I'm gonna try that though thank you. :x: I'm a graphic designer not much of a photographer sometimes I get thrown into these projects. I love it! Just tryin to get a grasp.

    yeah post up some pictures you took. it might be virtually impossible to shoot them w/o having motion blur b/c black lights dont put out that much light. i shot some doll scenery under a black light once and with a f/2.8 aperture the shutter was still so slow that if it had been humans moving it would have blurred

    You just need to increase the ISO for faster shutter speed and/or shoot at a larger aperture.
