Marry the night

My first serious stab at night photography. Again, an assignment in my photography course. I remember mucking about with night photography when I first started out with photography. Needless to say that wasn't a big succes because my camera was crappy and I didn't even own a tripod. Mission impossible right there. Night photography requires a lot more patience and skills than err, day photography. First it's a bit frustrating and it takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it a little it's just as awesome as "regular" photography. Plus you can experiment a lot with lighting and slow shutterspeed. Definitely something I'm gonna try out more in the future. I'll share the ones I think were the best and one with a bit of experimentation.

I can't help but think of "Back to the future" when I look at pictures with these kinds of lights in them. I've said it once and I will say it many times again: "ROADS?! Where we're going we don't need "roads"!

I also tried writing my name in the air with a little light but it's not all that clear that my name is actually "Naomi". Not too bad for a first try though, right? :-D

Next time I'll try some poetry. Tell me what your favorites are!

Hope you enjoyed my pictures!

  1. heel mooi! het lijkt net noemie :D maar de foto's zijn echt mooi, de eerste is het meest sfeervol en minst 'cluttered'. Die met de fiets en de schaduw vind ik ook heel mooi maar daar is de achtergrond jammer genoeg een beetje rommelig.

  2. I think these are magical night shots. I love how all the night lights look like stars!

  3. thesea re really cool!! i love the one with the bike, the shadow from the bike and the view off into the distance of the night is really cool, almost nostalgic. you are so talented :)
