After Dark: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

This week your challenge is to take and share a photo on the theme of ‘After Dark’.

Image by Luis Argerich

The only rule is that your photo has to be taken after the sun sets – so anything from Dusk to Dawn goes!

You can make it a portrait with some artificial lighting, some light painting, a cityscape of a night skyline, light trails, Fireworks, a candle light shot, star trails, shots of the moon …. really anything goes.

Once you’ve taken your ‘After Dark’ Images – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to them or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSNIGHT to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Treasures challenge.

    Moon shot on the Buddhist Visakhapuja's night. The photograph was cropped out and sharpened a bit in Photoshop. Handheld with Sony A55 + Minolta 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 D lens

    The other photo was the light from banners on the walking street in Pattaya. Using an old technique to zoom in during slow shutter speed. Shot with Sony A55 + Sony 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3, SAL18250, lens

    I took my first night shot in Cape Town with my new canon XSI/450d and the 50mm F/1.8 II. We saw the sky change over Houtbay there that made me take the shot. My father in law was calling me stupid taking 25 shots to get to this one. He liked the result in the end tough :) For stabilisation I used a pillow.

    Where I live, sunset and sunrise are only about 3 hours apart. In a couple weeks, we wont have any sunrise or sunset at all (for a few days). Even after sunset there is still light - it really only looks like dusk until the sun rises again. I guess I won't be doing this challenge for a while!

    These are two of my favourites from a trip we did to Joshua Tree and along the California coast in a 78 Westfalia. One is a light painting of a tree with the night sky in the background the other a long exposure of the Westfalia at rest in one of the parks.

    This is a green tree frog on my steps in the country on a moonless night.

    EOS 10D & Canon FL 55mm f/1.2
    Shuter speed: 10 seconds
    Aperture: f/1.2
    ISO 400
    No Flash (small torch)
    Tripod.

    This photo was taken on the front steps of my house in pitch darkness, with the help of a little rechargeable torch that is decorated as a cow. I set up the tripod and shone the torch (its one where you have to charge it as you shine it because the batteries are kaput) on the frog while attempting to focus, and then shone the torch on the frog and around a bit during the ten second exposure. The frog was very accommodating.
