There’s something about night photography that makes it incredibly intriguing to me. It could be the absence of crowd; the mysterious illumination of the street lights; or the sheer difficulty in getting a good shot. Whenever I travel, I like to spend a few hours exploring the same places at night (and in the case of Europe, braving the cold wind and dodging street prostitutes in doing so!).
What makes London great is that there are so many little pockets of area each with its own charm and identity. Besides the usual tourist areas such as Westminster and the west end area, I hope to explore the night scenes of other lesser known places and to use this blog as a fuel to do more.
I shoot with a Nikon D3100, a novice entry level DSLR with the default 18-55mm lens. I don’t use a tripod (which is something I need to start learning how to use soon) and almost always without camera flash. The resultant shots are still very amateur (and not nearly as sharp as I would love them to), but I guess I need to start somewhere!
