Capture the City

Why not urban-ify your take on the traditional landscape? Focus on the lights and lives of a modern environment.
Shooting at night requires you to either boost up the ISO (then deal with any noise-related issues in post-processing) or to shoot longer exposures. If you’re going with the latter, you are going to need a tripod or similar support to help. Personally, I use a lightweight carbon-fibre travel tripod or a Gorillapod for my after-dark shots, but I have seen people improvise, resting cameras on walls and using bean bags to angle the lens. Try to expose for the highlights as you would in any other shot. You might even want to bracket your shots to capture as much detail lurking in the shadows as possible.
