Night Photography in the Early Morning

Of the series of pictures I took for my night photography class, this one is probably pushing it in regards to when I took it.  It was taken at 6:26am, so the sun was thinking about coming up, but you could still some of the night sky:

ISO 160 50mm 0ev f/18 189sec

As you can see from the camera data, it is a really long exposure, 189 seconds.  That is Venus you can see in the sky.  I really like the way the color turned out in this photo.

A Flower for Your Monday

I have been working on night photography for my digital photography class and here is a photo from that assignment:

ISO 160 f/18 0ev 50mm

This photo has an exposure time of 105 seconds.  My camera was on a tripod and I was using my remote release shutter.  During the exposure I used a laser pointer to color in the flower.  I will also tell you that even though this was night photography, I took the photo in the very early morning, while it was still dark.

Travel Theme: Spooky

I could not pass up this week’s theme, spooky.  A lot of pre-Halloween fun going on over at Where’s my backpack, so I thought I would join in.  This past week in my Digital Photography class we have been working on night photography so a bunch of my posts in the near future will have that as a theme.  Here is my spooky night photo taken this past week:

ISO 160 f/18 18s 0ev 50mm

It was lurking in my front garden! This photo was taken at 6:13am using a tripod, flashlight, and laser pointer.
