Join Steve Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Shooting at night, part of 5-Day Photo Challenge: Street Photography.
- Hey everyone. Welcome to day four of the street photography challenge. Today's challenge, or shall I say tonight's challenge is the city at night. And the city at night can be interpreted in different ways. I mean I tend to include sort of a twilight hour where you get the magic of the night in the city, but you've also got a little bit of fill light where there's still some ambient light there. But you know, it's really unlimited. What I love about night shooting on the street is everything takes on just a whole new look and atmosphere, and there's just no shortage of subject matter.
Now I'm in New York City, and of course there's a lot going on here. But it doesn't matter where you are, or how small a town you're in. The night provides kind of a mystery and a magic all it's own. So your challenge is to figure out a way to come up with some sort of night scene that captures the mood and atmosphere of the place that you are shooting in. So, I'm really looking forward to what you guys are going to come up with. And you can see my solution to day four's challenge, the city at night in the next movie. So, happy shooting and be careful out there, it's night time.
