12 night photos that I had to stay up late for is more like it…
As many of you do know, I stay up late. But it’s for a good reason, the nighttime can give us some incredible sights that we typically never see! So today I have picked 12 night photos that will make you think twice about heading to bed at 9:30…
Check out this post as well about the Night Time! Actually I have a lot of posts about night photography, as I truly love it! But since not everyone has seen what the night can offer for photos, I thought I would help you all out!
#1. City Scapes. A city will look completely different when the lights are on! And what I love is exploring to find a new vantage point! This one is at the Muttart Conservatory overlooking Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!
#2. Things look different in the dark! I could take this photo in the day and it might look alright, but the eerie glow of the moon, the stars, and a faint Aurora in the background make this SO much more interesting!
#3. Star Trails. Ok so this is one of the greatest things to do on a clear night! The Earth is spinning (duh) And if you leave your shutter open you can track the movement of them!
#4. Lightning! You can capture this in the day, and it still looks awesome, but at night it really lights up the sky! This was one of the funnest photos I have ever taken!
#5. The moonrise. Now you can find out when this will happen, but it isn’t that much, not when it’s full anyway. This photo has confused many people because they naturally would think it is the sun behind those clouds!
Half way through my 12 night photos that will make you stay up late !!
#6. Fireworks. They look really great live, even on T.V. But for me, a photo of fireworks is just incredible! Being able to freeze in time something that only lasts a few seconds really looks so unnatural, I love it!
#7. The Milky Way. Ummm Ya, do I really need to explain this one?
#8. Stars. Just the stars in general, I am just in awe when I look up to the sky on a clear night! I LOVE SPACE!
#9. Light trails. Similar to star trails, but with traffic! Neat right? You can do some amazing things with a camera.
#10. Lightwriting. Again like star trails and light trails. But in this case I was the person “writing with light”! This is super fun and the possibilities are endless of what you can do with a long exposure and a flashlight.
#11. Artificial Light. Adding in artificial light, if done well, can really produce some striking images! We are so used to seeing sunlight, that lighting a subject another way is super intriguing!
#12. The Aurora Borealis. How could I leave this out? It is THE MOST incredible thing to behold in the night sky! Breathtaking at times, and the photos, are AMAZING.
Well there are 12 night photos that will make you stay up late! Unless you are lame and go to bed at like 9:30… 😛 Anyway hope you enjoyed! Read more about the Aurora Borealis, and also a Night Shoot I bring you along for!
