  • Night Photography

    Over the past few week s I have been experimenting with night photography. After a rocky start and doing daft things like leaving lens caps on, taking photos with the lens covered in raindrops, and forgetting to take gloves, torches and spare batteries, I am starting to get the hang of things.

    This is the Forth Bridges, and is a 118 second exposure at f3.2, and ISO 100. The white streak in the sky is a plane coming into land at Edinburgh airport.


    This last one is the Forth Rail Bridge, and is a 118 second exposure at f5.6, and ISO 100.


    This last one was taken at Kenmore looking west along Loch Tay, about an hour after sunset, hence the very blue sky. This is a 92 second exposure at f6.3, and ISO 100. Any suggestions as to what I can do to remove the 'green noise' in the left side of the water would be very much appreciated.

      Yes, the photos all started as RAW's. Many thanks for the suggestion.

      I altered the White Balance, and got this.

              They're very nice photos. I love the blue tones of the lake photo.

              I recently did a fair bit of night photography while on my OU course. (in fact I think theres some in my gallery here that I submitted for part of the course)

              Now I just need to get some warm clothes to try it at this time of the year

                  Nice shots. I've been thinking of heading down there to take some night shots too - the weather has kinda put me off though...

                    Some great shots there, Chris. I really like the second Forth Bridge shot.

                      Congratulations Chris,

                      I remember the Forth Bridges with fondness from my Navy days. Night photography requires a certain determination that most of us (me) don't have.

                          OK, but how did you get the tree to stay still for 118 seconds!
                          When trying HDR, I often get movement in even the mildest weather!

                          Well done, cracking shots. The most I've done so far is 60 seconds!

                          Another on my to-do list!

                            There was very little wind when that photo was taken.

                            Remember also that because a longer exposure is being used whatever is in the photo needs to stay relatively still otherwise it will not be recorded.

                            Whilst this can be a disadvantage, it also gives you the creative freedom to include other things in the photo. As per this


                            This is a 150 second exposure. I started the timer, walked into the shot, stood still holding the flag for about 60 seconds and then walked out of the shot again.
