Street Photography at Night
There is something about urban landscapes and street scenes after dark when they become a whole new world. Streetlights, building lights, traffic. There is a certain calmness to it all once the commuters has disappeared. New scenes to explore. The shadows, the colours.
High ISO film or digital sensors tends to bring out something unseen.
I think a lot of the time when we are on our way home after dark we don’t tend to stop and look. We don’t see this whole new world with new lights, colours and shadows.
Sometimes, this new world is invisible unless you use your camera to reveal it with a very long exposure time to enhance shadows, see motion blur, or to reveal reflections on water.
