As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been planning and anticipating some night photography opportunities - one venture being a study in long exposures using the moving lights of carnival rides as my subjects. I am eagerly awaiting the next time "Sustainival" comes to town, as I have more ideas to execute! (I think I need to advocate for carnivals, fire dancers and fireworks displays every weekend - it's all so fun! Although, I imagine we may take it for granted then, wouldn't we?)
The majority of my night photography adventures have been sparked by our photography club's upcoming exhibit theme, "Night Shift: Photography From Dawn Until Dusk". I love a new goal as it lights a fire under you to get creating! I have really fallen in love with creating images after the sun sets. It's a totally different world and a whole new skill set to hone - the spark has been fanned into flame and I'm hooked!
If you have the opportunity, check out our exhibit this month, starting with the opening night next Thursday, October 9th. I am excited to see what images have been created by other club members who have sacrificed warmth and sleep to explore the world after dark!
