Photo Walk by Night

July 20, 2012

Last night, I went out with a few friends for a photo walk (and beers!) after sunset.

I put a 35mm f/1.8 on my D7000 and took only a small Manfrotto tripod to help for long exposures. Lights were a challenge all night long and the white balance was hopelessly confused by all the different light sources.

I focused mainly on architectural details (doors, knobs) and the reflection of the city lights in the river. I wanted to catch the river with a silky aspect and contrast it with the harsh lights coming from the buildings.

It was a fun night and I am looking forward to the next one.
