Before the Dawn

pIMG_9249 by Dina

Night is coming to an end, we have finished up our current exploration of Night Photography. Your explorating shouldn't stop now, however. Armed with the info I've shared you are ready to continue your photography into the night.

Take some time to explore the links below and the Flickr pool. There are so many great interpretations of "Night" to be found. Today I chose Dina's wonderful point of view on the chandelier, to remind us night isn't all about outside, interesting images are to be found with the inside lights too. Below, Brenda used the blue hour to great effect as contrast for the red beams, and Deborah reminds us of the beauty of a summer evening. I can almost feel the evening breeze and see the views from that ferris wheel. Gorgeous.

Tomorrow it's time to begin a new exploration. No more "second edition" Exploring with a Camera posts, it's time to go back to school and get back to routine. I've been surprised at how much I enjoyed revisiting the "second edition" topics with you all this summer, so I may do that once in a while for fun. For now though, I have new things to explore. Come back tomorrow and see!

Finally, don't you want to know who won the giveaway?

  1. Thanks Kat for the feature and for the gentle shove outside my comfort zone - exploring the night!

  2. Nice surprise! Thanks, Kat! Made my day....

  3. I love these images of night shooting. I'm ticked at myself, despite good intention, for not getting to it. I guess there's always plenty of dark to play with, especially with fall and winter coming on. I printed out the handy booklet. Thanks for that. All I need is a camera bag, but for now, glove box will work. Good thing I don't drive a snappy scooter like yours or I'd have no place to stash it. :)

  4. I love it! Thank you so much, Kat. I'm ready for your next challenge, too. :)


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
