Night time is the right time

Been playing around with some night time long exposure shots recently. Fun to set up to shoot and fun to edit. While I miss being able to get the dramatic sunset shots, and a normal dinner, the night watch does allow for some interesting photographic opportunities. I have been experimenting with the trio of lenses for my Nikon One V1, as well as my ND8 & CPL filters, which has definitely helped improve the quality of my night time work. Also helping is my continued use and practice with Lightroom. I lack the formal eduction I wish I could get in this study, however the learning journey is still enjoyable. I think some kind of online course may be in my future, along with some upgraded equipment as finances allow!

    Good stuff, Ben. There are many good Lightroom tutorials on the web. I also use LR and have added the Nik/Google suite of plug-ins which includes a good HDR plug-in. Night time and fog are two of my favorite subjects.
