Night Shoot

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

03:20hrs yesterday, still awake editing images. Looked out the window, looked like a good night to practice night shooting. So dressed in shorts, T-shirts and flip flops, I step into the cold night.

Two hours and 21 shots later (20 others had gone the way of delete, delete, delete), I realise a fact that I already know, I need to practice taking more night shots.

I wasn't really pleased with the shots I took, so why post up this shot I hear you think (me psychic you know), well because I started to realise the things I am able to get away with shooting in RAW. I.e, I do get people asking me how they can get rid of colour casts (you know, the redness of the image) one is some times left with while shooting.

Have a look at the original shot Here. One of the advantages of shooting in RAW/Neff format is the ability to edit the white balance settings later on the PC. Controlling the white balance setting is one way to remove colour casts in your images. There are ways to remove colour casts in JPEG images but why go through all that when I can simply shoot in RAW & with the aid of a few sliders in a few seconds, image rescued. (Or one can cheat and simple turn the images to monochrome).

Not everyone is bestowed with adequate lighting/camera/ lens equipment or the best softwares, I say make what you have, work for you to the best of your ability, so learning just what your eyes, equipment and software can do for you is paramount.

So I now go back to my best friends, me photoshop books and hope you guys learn one or 2 tricks from visiting this part of cyberspace.

Got so much dirt on my sensor it's soo annoying.

Nice shot, I especially like the sparkly lights smile
Interestingly, I had a conversation with someone about shooting in RAW today. After looking at this shot and comparing it to the original, I am convinced that I should get myself a DSLR sometime next year.

Awesome PP'ing Suby. The quality and richness of the shot is sorta elevated due to the original RAW format me thinks. smile

Hey Suby, I call 'miracle' what did you make with this photo. Well done!

Yeah!! Suby is going to study something new. I enjoy watching you from afar as you learn new things and improve your skills. Are you going to head out to the countryside to do some night shooting, too?

This is really nice, looks like I'm reading one of those glossy books or like a movie scene, the micra looks like a bentley in a way oo hehe the front.

P.s. in response to ur comment on my blog smile Thanks that is really sweet, I will try and update more often but I try to leave a gap so that novelty doesn't wear out, not everyone can read and comment everyday :o) Thanks again, I shd visit your photoblog more often too!

Long exposure night shots are tricky. This is pretty good, there is a bit too much glare/flare though.

good street scene with this light.
I'm very happy to see a new picture of town from you. I liked very much this serie you put here few weeks ago, with a very nice work on lights and colors. Darkness and grain.
This one is beautiful - Composition and this flare effect !
Bravo Suby smile
Nice photo, Suby. I dont use to comment, but I like your work too.
Keep going.

I'll be honest. As a night test shot, this is OK. Scene itself isn't very interesting. Techically you're on the right track to use RAW for its post-processing capabilities. I'd change camera settings for night shots like this - use lowest ISO (100 for your camera), use aperture f/8-f/11. f/20 is too small for complex lighting like here, at this aperture light diffraction takes place. Watch for those lights, flares look very bad in the night shots. I noticed you used Full Manual mode, did you just guess exposure time? Aperture priority should be fine for most cases.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Andriv, The scene is diffenitely not interesting, dressed in my PJ's I don't think I was going to walk to far away from my front door at 03:00hrs smileI did shoot at different appertures and shutter speed, but just sorta freferred this shot. Also shooting in AV just does not do it for me. Although I did try a few shots in AV and they came out pretty okay.
Thanks for the visit and do visit again smile
great night shot!

This is a good observation Suby, I've been shooting in RAW for years, and I'll never go back. It gives you the ability to really push images further than photographers have ever been able to do before. It has taken post processing to a whole new level.

The comparison with the original shows the work you've put in. I like the effects in this shot smile Are you gearing up for something wonderful for Hallowe'en?
Interesting atmosphere...
This is for sure a night shot smile this shot has a nice feeling and texture! get some sleep Suby at some point smile
