Did you ever wonder how to capture the splendor of the night sky? Look no more! This shot is not difficult, it’s really just a matter of setting the stage. While planning your nocturnal escape, let me take you in the following lines through it step by step. First things first, we need to choose the location. Because of various factors of our modern life such as light pollution, stars are hard to spot in the city. The ideal location is one of total darkness. Such spot can easily be found using information... continue reading

There are some great opportunities, and challenges, in photographing the night sky. This is especially true if you want to include the Milky Way as in this photo below. Here are four steps to make it easier for you.1. Plan the location.You are looking for the darkest sky possible. In order to capture the Milky Way you will need to find a south facing location (in North America) where you are at least twenty miles or so away from a city or town. Plus the scene should ideally have no light sources... continue reading
We are still waiting for the heatwave in The Netherlands, but yet - mostly because of the rain we're getting lately - I'm thinking about Christmas. I am not a real fan of winter, except when it's snowing. I still remember the cracking sound my feet made when I was playing in the snow as a kid. Those days Christmas was all about family for me. I was much younger and less independent, and we had the tradition of celebrating Christmas at the house of my grandma (now 93 years old), with lots of... continue reading
There is a thing about the night, especially when you walk around with your camera. The lack of people, the sleeping birds, the occassional bat or hedgehog, it's all beautiful. Atleast that is what I'm thinking.As part of a small course I took this photo of a typical windmill that can be found in my town. It's called The Windhound and it's still used for preparing flour.Enjoy. continue reading
Not my photo and not quite what I had in mind but on with the blog.I'd seen a few articles about night photography, the stars, milky way etc but another article caught my eye and it had photographs of American towns at night. http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-39040237The pictures looked so good and I thought I'd like to try something like that. One thing was certain, my photos would look nothing like the ones in the article but you've got to start somewhere and half the fun is seeing... continue reading
The Christmas light shows at Stanley Park of Vancouver at night like a dream world. Both adults and little ones were enjoying the beautiful lights and the winter snow during night times. A wonderful place. continue reading
Hello to allThis is the third time I write, today I would like to show you some night-time scatades ad hoc for the assignment.I did not do many photos at night but this competition pushed me to experiment again.Nature fascinates me, a starry sky can dodge different emotions but in my opinion a startrail arouses a single emotion: wonder.The star trail is a photographic technique that utilizes long-exposure times to capture the apparent motion of stars in the night sky due to the rotation of... continue reading

The last couple of years i got hooked on shooting during (early) nighttime hours. The long exposures make you really work your images, composition and exposure has to be exactly right.Right after sunset you have the nice blue and orange colors in the sky. Then when the sky goes black and the lights are on at buildings and bridges this produces amazing end very color-rich night shots.Recently i was able to visite some of the big cities in Australia, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and it was... continue reading
