Thursday’s Special : Night Photography…

Three years ago I went to a photography course in Brisbane. I learnt a lot and had a great day. (take a look here)

But that was 3 years ago and I can’t believe how the time has flown. We did touch on painting with light, (see the results in this post)  and night-time photography and I declared I would practice.

After the course we took the ferry along the Brisbane River to the train station and home. On that ferry ride I tried to capture the Brisbane skyline at night. It was not easy as the ferry was bobbing around on the swell. I tried resting on the deck rails, but they were bobbing up and down too. So I tried to time the shots when the ferry was not rocking too much.

Not totally successful as I did not practice, as I promised myself I would, so these are some of the only night-time photos I have…

Cardinal Guzman is Paula’s guest contributor this week and he has challenged us to try night photography and given us some very good tips to get started. Take a look at them here.

Recently I did, briefly, dabble with an on line Photography course. This is one of the photos I submitted for this course. We had to try for atmospheric night-time shots. This is a neighbour’s place that I liked the look of. It says warmth and comfort to me. What do you think?

 Travel has previously got in the way for any serious study. But now I am having a stay at home year I’m hoping to practice more “taking off the automatic” photography, and more art, and more gardening, and more…..

Thank you CG for prodding me into action…

But time will tell. Watch this space!!!!
