  • Rob Stowell,

    Gorgeous. When there's so little of it, you really become conscious photography is all about the quality of the light.

    Great post, Angus, and there's many more cool and crisp night visions on your website. Streetlights and digital imaging seem to go well together.

    So apt that this post is named after The Bats 1984 debut EP!

    Back when people were still allowed on the wharves in Lyttelton...

    Great to meet you last night Angus, and pleasing to see the little Art Ache show was well attended. Also managed to meet Amy, so will look at doing one myself at some stage.

    Excited to find out about The Print Room too.

    Took a couple of night shots while walking up Richmond Rd on the way to the show. I found it quite hard to capture the darkness, which you seem to do very well.

    Really good to see you there Jackson. My basic recipe that gave me better results was to use a tripod, shoot raw, then use adobe camera raw's tools to firstly: make the white balance much bluer as sodium street lights are orange. also do graduated exposure adjustments. For example, I burn in the footpath which always is overlit, then try to lighten the top to get some star light and more even lighting on the subject

    I burn in the footpath...

    do you do any 'burning in' of objects in situ on long exposures?
    or is it all in post production tools
    - and digital cameras' brilliant ability to see into shadows...

  • Angus McNaughton, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    Not darkening, I'd do that afterwards. You could always use an optical graduated filter. Many people do "light painting" with a torch to highlight something, I haven't really used this method yet. Modern digital seems better suited than film for long exposures /low light photography as there is really good dynamic range. I'm always struggling with noise however, so looking for future camera upgrade options.

    This is one area where us iPhone chancers can’t really play. But see if you can guess where these are taken.

  • DeepRed,

    The Wellington Lux light show has just wrapped up, and I got a few gems. Especially gems of the video captured kind.

    bottom one might be art in the ark, or the french thing in the domain - though who knows, I guess you can wear a light suit anywhere : )

    Here's another Lux photo - of the nZwarm exhibit in the foreground - and this time I've managed to splice a 3D render onto it.

    by Jove...

    imposter

    maybe not a moon,
    maybe a planet?
    ...it looks like one of
    the glass giants.
