Nocturnal Photography

© Demonike ( Help)
They say: "Photography is all about lighting". And it's true. How many times I have experienced truth of the words "No light - no photo". But... is there any place in the world, were at some moment is absolutely no light? Maybe only if you lock yourself in some airtight, crackless room. But usually there's always light. Maybe sometimes just too little, but it is. So... where's light, there can be a photo.

I discovered a site what unites nocturnal photographers from all around the world. It calls The Nocturnes: www.thenocturnes.com

There are fantastic galleries with nocturnal photos and lot of tips for night photography.

My current favorites are Dan Heller, Sean McHugh, Toni Ramón, William Lesch, Helen K. Garber, Philip Pankov and Troy Paiva. But especially Philip Pankov, his homepage made me too emotional... too much beauty... and Karekin Goekjian's work is also very interesting. Have a look.

And here are some great photos, from our DT lightmasters. Or nightmasters? :)

what a great collection of images. I often have too much going on during the day and find myself wandering around the streets of my local city with camera and tripod in tow. Finding light in the night can be easier than during the day, sometimes.

Thanks for the link on that website. I have been looking to do more night shooting but I often lack inspiration.
