Night Photography

A great video, which follows a inspirational group who conduct shoots at night in the dessert. The group introduces you to night photography and its various processes. It defines what you can achieve by shooting at night and constructing your lighting conditions. The video demonstrates techniques you can consider when shooting at night such as light painting, use of shutter speeds and composition. These processes give the amateur photographer the chance to make their images take visual characteristics that are almost unreachable when shooting on quick shutter speeds, as without great knowledge and budgets for lighting it would not be possible.

Shooting at night is difficult, it takes patience, perseverance, planning and sometime luck to create spectacular images.

The second video, Painting with light, demonstrates the innovative approach of combining photoshop masking, with light painting, which in turn allows more than is possible in a single exposure to combine into one single image.


 Here is a more basic look at how you can use the light painting technique in order to capture still life objects. It is obviously more advisable to master this before going to light scenes.


 Finally a slightly odd video with a rock power ballad for background music demonstrates tips and hints of lighting still life images.


  Your task
