The Ultimate Guide to Night Photography

Night photography immediately solves a huge problem that you confront constantly in photography. That problem is being faced with ordinary scenes that just aren’t very interesting. If you take a picture of a building or a standard street scene during the day, it can be sort of dull. We are all used to seeing shots taken in the middle of the day. That same scene – shot at night – can be a really interesting photograph though.

The actual taking of pictures at night might seem a little bit like magic if you are just getting started. Even those who have been shooting a while may wonder how to get a proper exposure and focus in the dark. Although photographing in the dark certainly has its challenges, in some ways, it is actually easier than photography during the day.

So let’s take a quick look at the essentials of night photography. In particular, we’ll cover the gear you need, how to expose your photos, how to focus at night, great subject matter, and some post-processing tips. Hopefully, this will help open up the world of night photography to you.

Hopefully, this guide will help you get started with night photography. As you get ready for your next outing, just remember a few things:
– The only additional items that are necessary for night photography are a tripod and remote shutter release. Some other helpful items are a flashlight, a lens hood, and an extra battery.
– For exposure, start with moderate ISO (around 400) and aperture (around f/5.6-8) and see where that puts your shutter speed. Adjust from there with an eye toward getting the shutter speed (exposure time) you want.
– Pick a subject that lends itself to night photography. Remember that things look very different at night, so take some test shots.
– Focus your camera by finding or creating areas of contrast and setting the autofocus on those areas. When necessary, switch to manual focus.
– When you get home, edit your images as you wish, but you might try decreasing the Highlights, increasing the Shadows, and pulling down the Blacks slightly.

Art Photography Awards 2018

Pour les tout premiers LensCulture Art Photography Awards, nous voulons découvrir et mettre en lumière les différentes façons artistiques dont les photographes bousculent le medium et réinventent notre définition de l’Art tel qu’il est créé par la photographie. Les possibilités sont infinies ; nous nous sommes donnés pour mission de célébrer toutes les techniques, méthodes et approches stylistiques utilisées par les artistes du monde entier. Pour ce nouveau concours, nous avons le plaisir de nous associer à la Fondation Aperture et nous sommes ravis d’annoncer que les travaux sélectionnés des gagnants, des lauréats du Choix du Jury et des finalistes seront exposés à l’Aperture Gallery, de réputation mondiale, à New York au printemps prochain !

Que signifie la photographie d’art pour vous ? Pourquoi reste-t-elle importante et pertinente ? Comment peut-elle provoquer l’appréciation de la beauté ou une nouvelle façon de regarder le monde ? Nous sommes preneurs de tous types de photographie d’art, depuis l’Art imprimé sur les murs des galeries aux objets sculpturaux, en passant par les procédés expérimentaux, et les derniers formes et formats innovants. Nous comptons sur vous pour nous aider à définir ce que peut être en 2018 une photographie d’art qui suscite la réflexion !

Games of Light & Shadow in Architecture

As an architect/international bridge engineer, I have been fortunate enough to visit a lot of places not only in Tokyo, but also around the world for various large architectural and bridge structure projects, including my own engineering achievement. Firstly, I brought a camera just for taking shots such of the interesting scenery in foreign countries.

But gradually my mind has been changed. The reason why I’m interested in photography came initially from simply taking photographs of the bridges and buildings I’ve designed; however, recently I saw some wonderfully artistic, architectural photographs in several web galleries and international photograph magazines and have been passionately interested in such the category of fine-art photography by my own ever since. —Dr. Akira Takaue
