So, tonight we are having a bbq party and I am in charge to take lots of photos. There will be very low light and specially the light from fire. I do not want to use flash as it spoils the photo. I use Nikon D5300. Is there any suggestions that I need so that I can able to pull off some beautiful photos?.

Setting up a larger aperture ( +/- ƒ2,
a low SS (+/- 1/60s) and
limiting the ISO to say +/- 1200.

In the worse cases, you better have a
TTL flash photo than no photo at all.

Have a good time!
