|I hope you are doing well and staying healthy! |
I’ve been using the constraints of the pandemic to further explore my interest in various types of photography and projects, including astrophotography (deep space objects). I have revived my other passion, astronomy, which has been on hiatus for many (many) years. There is much to photograph where you live and I hope you have been taking advantage of this time to do things you didn’t have time for before the pandemic.
Two workshops have been scheduled for next month (details are below).
Colors of Night
I have always been fascinated by the unseen. Infra-red, time-lapse and night photography have been my obsession for many years. Our vision is quite limited, especially at night. Our eyes cannot see well at night but the reality is that darkness has beautiful color and our cameras can see it. For me, it’s amazing to frame a shot and marvel at the incredible, intense color that my camera can see and has captured. You don’t have to put your camera away once the sun sets. There is much yet to photograph!
You don’t need to head into the city for colorful vistas. The night transforms everything so there is magic to be discovered right in your neighborhood. If you are just starting out doing night captures, shooting local allows you to experiment using the same subject on different nights with ease.
Your own backyard has many marvels. How about shooting some startrails? Startrails can be photographed even in areas with substantial light pollution.
