Ever thought about getting artsy with lights? Well, here are a few of my tips. First, don’t buy lights that are too bright.

I had so much to learn when it came to the moon. It’s a tough subject to photograph because of lighting, timing (due to waiting for a full moon), and white balance, (the color the moon will end up looking like)

 

 

 

When it comes to long exposure night time photos may I just say…Practice Makes Perfect. Oh, also a tripod is a no brainer. You can’t hold a camera still for that long.

You can purchase a high quality mini tripod that should do the trick for only $29.95! That’s a good price if you want to work on night photography for a while. Down below is a link if you are interested.

I took this photo last year of 4th of July. All the photos I took last year turned out really nice! Unfortunately, this year didn’t go so weak, and I won’t be sharing those fails with you because  they were so and they didn’t turn out at all. But that’s ok. You live and you learn…right? What kind of writer would I be if was wasn’t honest about my failures?

If you have been following my blog for a while, I know what you are thinking. How many times is he going to share this photo with us? Well, I know you’ve seen it around a few times, but its one of my favorites! I spend a chilly several hours outside capturing 24 time lapse photos. This is the only one that turned out how I wanted and I felt super proud! Clearly though the cold must have gotten to me because I forget what camera settings I used, and now I haven’t been able to recreate it since. I now write down what I did after I take a good photo because different weather conditions will yield different results. And yes, for you photographers out there, I know that in lightroom you can view which settings you used, but I made the mistake of deleting the original after editing it. So I guess if we are talking just about my photography for the time being, this photo truly is one of a kind.

Thank You for Reading!
