As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have always really loved taking long exposures at night. I describe it to people like it’s my moment of Zen. A quiet, introspective experience where you process a scene that has taken on completely different characteristics from what it looks like in the day time. Due to the nature of light and photography, you have to be a lot more thought out in how you set up your compositions. It’s a different mindset than walking around taking photos in the daylight hours.
For some time now I’ve really wanted to put together a project and book of some of these photos I take in my spare time, as they are so completely different from what I do on the professionally side of things. A few other local photographers and I have come up with a project title called “100 Nights,” and the specifics of which I’ll be eventually getting around to here. In the meantime there are quite a few photos I want to share from the first few nights. If you have a particular favorite please comment!
