In many ways.
Sometimes I stop and think how things in the absence of light look so much more… uncomfortable. It wouldn’t even cross your mind during the day when everything’s brightly lit, but when the light disappears, immediately the atmosphere changes.

Myeah… when you live up north and most of the day is dark, you get quite some opportunities to shoot during the “night”.
We went to an old part of the railway area and there’s lots of stuff to shoot. If not old wagons or other equipment, it’s old buildings.
This we ran into just before we left. Notice the train that passed in the background during the 91 sec exposure… Happy coincidence at a railway area 😉

So… I’ve been trying out some painting with light. Or actually, with the flash.
They’re building a new bridge close to where we live (and the construction is an artwork in itself, I should really make a picture of it), and they’ve pulled up a framework of wood. I went out the other night to shoot some night shots and I ended up here.
With the camera on tripod (naturally), the remote shutter release locked and the exposure on bulb I went out with the flash in hand and popped it some in the beginning of the structure, a bit more half way and quite some more in the end. Trying to create some kind of creepy passage.
Did I succeed? Not sure. My better half thinks it’s creepy alright. And interesting…
You know when you ask someone what they think and they go “Hmmm… well, ummm… Yeah! It’s interesting…”
😀 No really… My better half would just brutally honestly tell me if it sucked (which is really effective and helpful!). So it must be somewhat interesting.
