Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sunset To Sunrise

Just because the sun has gone down for the night doesn’t mean it’s time to put away the camera.  For some of us, it’s the opposite.  This is when the best photos can happen, starting with the blue hour (above).  Once the blue hour has passed, you might be lucky enough to catch some stars.

While some don’t venture into the great outdoors after dark, city streets can always provide subjects for your camera.  Perhaps you will even encounter some ghosts.

It wouldn’t be much fun watching fireworks in daylight, whether manmade or natural.

If you ever have a chance to witness lava flows up close, you will want to do this after sunset.  It’s quite difficult to see the lava underneath the surface, and you might be on top of it before you realize where it’s at.

WPC: Experimental

A couple nights ago, I was in the desert under a moonless night.  I had a powerful LED flashlight so that I could check my focus, but I had intended to shoot under natural light.  In my first couple exposures, the flashlight looked horrible, but I started to experiment with the light for positioning and length of time.  The photos taken under natural light ended up as I hoped for, but a couple of the exposures with the aid of the light also turned out very well.
