Day 258 - Do Night Photography Week.
Hey All. Who here is a casual photographer? If you own a SLR camera or can borrow a friends, there is an interesting and highly creative Night Photography Week class that is going on right now. It's running all week and is completely free to watch live on Creative Live. This is a highly informative class and a shows fascinating ways to create in the dark. Personally, I never considered night photography. It just never seemed as if I would capture an interesting photo in the dark. After one day of class, I can see the allure and the magic. Taking photos at night can create interesting and dynamic works of creativity. However, for me what makes it appealing is the fresh perspective it can bring to the world. It also a little bit dangerous too which always gets the blood pumping and makes life exciting.
Today's project is to create a night photograph and start watching the class Night Photography Week on Creative Live. If you don't have an SLR, it's ok. Try to use your smart phone to capture something at night. Just pull out your phone or camera and try! It's amazing what can come out of stepping out to create in the dark.
After watching day one of this class, I found myself on the roof of my house trying to shoot the moon, literally! Unfortunately, I couldn't get a photo of the moon but I did manage to take a photo of the BART train speeding by. It's a pretty horrible photograph but it was amazing see the world from a whole new way to create.
Well, I'm going to get back to the Night Photography Week class. Let's see what the night makes you create. Post your photos on the Create & Change Facebook page. Until tomorrow night shutterbugs.
