Hampton Roads Through the Lens at NightJuly 24th, 2012 at 10:40 am by Tom Schaad under News, Personalities, Uncategorized
Here’s an example of pushing your craft beyond your “comfort zone.” I became quite interested in photography just a few years ago when I snapped some point-and-shoot images of sunsets near my home and was encouraged by the kind responses from many of you. But John Cleese, of Monty Python fame, used to say, “And now for something completely different.” Use that for an intro to this little collection of night shots. I’ve taken some long exposures before, but this is hand-held high-ISO stuff, and I found how difficult it is to execute. But I enjoyed the mood of the streets at night, and tried to capture the shadows and mystery of dimly lit scenes. I use a Canon EOS Rebel, and it’s somewhat limited in high ISO situations. However, I feel the camera recorded the mood of long shadows and city lights that show a different side to photography. Please enjoy this little night stroll–through the lens.
