I'm in Argentina updating my photos and website. You may have noticed that I have quite a few photos that are taken at night. It's my favourite time to shoot, but takes a bit more effort to get decent results. I've just finished updating my article on how to take photos at night, so thought I'd share the process I go through to get images that look like the ones here.
Thanks for suggestions, I'm living above the norvegian arctic circle, I bought my new DSLR yesterday and the sun is goin to disappear in a couple of weeks and comes back the 7th january.... And after 30 years of pics without tripod I'will start to use it :-)
Thanks for the tips. btw did you finsih your world tour??? or still traveling.
I'm still traveling - haven't uploaded too much lately because I've been in places with really bad internet connections, but I'm now in Buenos Aires catching up on some work. My upload que should be full again pretty soon!
Thanks for all the comments! Maybe another bit of advice should be: Go out with friends! In most places there's plenty to photograph in places that are perfectly safe - but I must say the photo from the Quito Old Town wasn't one of them. Walking back (alone!) probably wasn't the smartest thing - still it all went well!
Fantastic images! Thanks for the tips. I've had a go at taking our local powerstation at night (I live in a small town so no great cityscapes) and they came out better than I expected. Twilight is definitely a great time to take them. :0)
I have read your article with the most interest as I use an Olympus DSRL and I am always struggeling with the exposure when taking pictures at that time of night. But than I must admit I am not always carrying a tripod or a beanbag with me. Thanks for this useful information. Your photo's are wonderful!
