Some experimantal shots at night... Please let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking!
OK, having taken into account your silent criticism, I removed last three pics and will try to *bump* this...
sorry, i don't find these that great in subject matter, not that they are bad. if they are as you said experimental, then they are fine for learning more about night photography.
newrmdmike, thanks, point taken. I just wanted some feedback!
do you live in aurora? the subdivision looks familiar
burlington... it's all alike
I like the first one ... I take it these were your first forays into nighttime photography and you had to make use of what little light there is for you?
In that case you did well: small aperture (giving you nice "stars" from the street lights), long enough exposure, clear, totally unblurred picture ... I like it! Nothing much going on in a residential area of a little town, is there? And yet ... you captured what is there.
The second is a nice concept, too. How did you stabilize your camera for that one?
I used tripod as monopod.
Generally speaking in my opinion night photography has to be really special to catch people's eye. I guess because photography is all about light. At night it is even more about how you use the light and dark.
So a shot of an intersection at night is just not really interesting unless there is an overturned bus, a couple of street people standing around a barrel on fire, or some really cool lighting features.
Buildings at night should tell a story. You know like a boy and girl holding hand leaving your video store. Good photography, I think, has emotion in other words not just prety pictures.
Now im sorry this goes a little past what you wanted to hear im sure, and its only my opinion.
I like the first shot.
mysteryscribe, I agree with you completely, and that was what I needed to hear. By now I do feel completely embarrassed with these pictures, won't post outcome of my technical experiments anymore
Not at all... Post everything just each time you do make adjustments next time..
Post some shots that you do a little differently next time. shoot a slow moving car in your intersection or people blured as they walk by. Whatever you like.
Keep shooting and keep looking for answers its how you learn not just about shutter speed and aperture but about all of it.
