New works – Night Photography

I have done very little in the way of night photography. Not due to lack of opportunity, really, because night comes every day.

Anyway, I went with a friend, also a photographer, to the Vivid Festival in Circular Quay in Sydney. They put on light shows apparently. They light up the Opera House with images and patterns. It was alright but truthfully I was rather underwhelmed.

However, we then walked up to Macquaire St and on towards Hyde Park. I flicked my camera onto Shutter Priority and set it to 3 seconds. This is its maximum – it’s an old superzoom.

Well I quite liked some of the results, though in the dark there are so many things that come out in a picture that I couldn’t see at the time, so some composition didn’t work out as I intended. Overall, though, I am happy with what I managed to get and for the discovery of what a long exposure at night can do.

These can be seen larger by clicking on the pics. All are available on RedBubble.
