Street Photography night competition australia

The competition this fortnight is Street Photography at Night.

So last fortnight we had sunset photography, and now we're taking it later into the night after the last beam of daylight has disappeared for the evening. This theme is all about exploring photo opportunities using the available light in our towns and cities.

It can be tempting to put the camera away once it gets dark, but there are so many ways to get creative with the lights and buzz of the city. Think neon lights, street signs, the gentle glow from street lamps and ways you can emphasise light with long exposures.

Is there a street in the city that comes alive at night? Or what about a bustling street that goes eerily quiet once the commuters are all in bed? Try to find a story that you can tell.

Pack your tripod and favourite lens and see what you can capture. Photography is simply playing with light, so think of the city as a camera playground.

Will you be focusing on architecture. . .reflections. . . people? Maybe you'll be showing how busy an area is, or how empty it can become.
