Night Photography Fun

A little more Night Photography fun here for you. I love night photography. Find the object, set the camera, press the button, wait in excitement for the results!…What could be better? This first photo, is of a Fallen Birch Tree at work. It has been such a hard winter this year with incredible amounts of snow falling. This is a result of a snowstorm that occurred. The tree had split and fell over one of the area lights. Exposure was 8 seconds and at f16. Enjoy.

Next, is the church in Vaasa again. I have posted photos of this church on a previous blog post. But they were daytime captures and converted into black and white. This was a 20 second exposure at f16. Myself, i love the negative space between the tree and the church in this shot. This church has so many great angles and veiws, all that i have tried my best to capture, and hope to post up as the blog progresses.

Last one of the post. This is taken at the small harbor area near Strandgaten. It is overlooking the Restaurant Ship ‘Faros’. This restaurant has quite a lot of business throughout the summer months, not as an eating place, but as a drinking place. It is another long exposure, this time a 30 second f16 exposure. There are some traffic trails in the background from the main road leading to Sundom over Vasklot Bridge.

Pedestrian Crossing

I’m Extremely happy with this capture!…Was a 30 second exposure, at f 16. I have a soft spot for the traffic signs in this country! They are so bold and modern. So i had an idea of going to the bottom of the street, and taking a photo of one. Which, turned out to be photographs of many…. I will post more from the set but i thought that this HAD to be the first one…. I call it “Pedestrian Crossing”, for obvious reasons…but a friend via Facebook made me chuckle with a new title, ” Giant Man Walking On Giant Piano” just like the Tom Hanks movie Big.
