Night photography is often very difficult to do because if you don’t want any type of blur or noise, you have to do a lot of thinking. That is not the case when you desire a blurred effect. It is much easier and presents an opportunity to have fun and not worry so much if you subject stays in focus and has no graininess to it.

1 – LCD Painting – Rigby, ID 11/08/10 – f/2.8, 15″, ISO 80

I did not editing on any of these photos apart from minor enhancements to color, contrast, saturation, etc. To accomplish this photo I used a little LCD screen to move around while my camera placed on an object solid enough to keep it from moving. The colors turned out awesome.

3 – Swirl- Rigby, ID 11/08/10 – f/3.9, 1″, ISO 80 ā€“ Nikon S70

These two swirls were done with two separate LED lights. One was a little LED lantern and the other was just a single LED light that I have on my key chain. Each light was set on my desk office and I used the camera itself this time to get the effect. What I did was swirl the camera round and round while I walked closer to the lights.

4 – Chasing Cars – Rigby, ID 11/08/10 – f/3.9, 1″, ISO 80 ā€“ Nikon S70

I live right off Highway 20 and knew I could get some moving cars in one of the cool nigh light effects. So I walked out through the snow and placed my camera on a fence post and set the aperture to a slow enough setting to capture some light movement.

    Shane, I love your night and lights. Especially the moving lights. There is so much detail in the ground. You did a great job.

  1. Great photos! I like how you added depth to your light paintings. That really adds a lot to the picture and makes it more interesting! Nice capture of the “chasing cars” too. I really like your pictures. Great job!
