Weekly Photography Challenge – Night Photography

Recently I rounded up some great examples of stunning night photography. It’s a genre of photography that is popular with many and comes with its own challenges and issues to overcome. But it’s worth the effort as you can create images with something special. Places just look different at night.

Weekly photography challenge – night photography

If you haven’t tried long exposure photography or gone out and done some shooting at night, now is the perfect time to try it. Find a buddy to come along with you, it’s more fun if you work with a friend. Photography clubs and meetup groups often do group events for night photography, look for one in your area. Find a mentor who has some experience with night photography to help you get started.

Try some star shots, city light, light trails, moon or Milky Way shots, painting with light, or even a portrait. If you need some assistance see the list of articles below that can give you some tips.

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
