Why do I shoot at Night?

September 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

If you look through my work you will see that I shoot a lot at night and at sunset. This is not really something senior photographers do as a norm so why do I do it? The reasons really are simple. I like to shoot at night!! 


It took me a long time to figure out what my style was in photography and what my niche was. Then one day I decided to do a night shoot to develop my skills and knowledge. It was the middle of summer and the hunidity was crazy but it was so much fun. I enjoyed the technical side of the shot by figuring out where the light was going to fall, how the shadows would appear, could I separate the model from the dark background....................... all this technical stuff made sense to me and it kept me on my toes. I loved envisioning a completely dark alley set up for a shot and then trying re-create it in reality. It was fun!! 

When I got home to my computer I needed to upload the images and see what I had captured. It was very late at night and I needed to edit some of the images. I always know when I am excited about a shoot because it doesn't matter what time I get home, I will start to edit. This shoot was like that for me. Not only did I enjoy the shoot but I was really happy with the results. I had found what I wanted to do!! But........ I still wanted to shoot my seniors and seniors don't shoot at night!! So I created the Day2Nite shoot for seniors. I am not going to go into the Day2Nite concept again as I already blogged about it before and I don't want to bore you guys that have already read that one: DAY2NITE Blog Post 


I shoot at night because I love to shoot at night, I love how the images look and I love how it keeps me on my toes as a photographer. It also adds another option for those seniors that want something different for their photoshoot.

BE DIFFERENT................
