Some Night Photos

Photography for Beginners Part 15:  Types of Night Photography

I didn’t include any images in my Night Photography posts because they were already overly long. So I’m displaying a few here.

All photos were taken with my current camera, a Fujifilm X-T20 with an APS-C crop sensor. All focal lengths are given in full frame equivalents.

All of the photos are SOOC (straight out of camera) JPEGS. SOOC means you haven’t done any editing. Though I did reduce resolution so the files wouldn’t take up too much of my limited WP storage allowance. (Click on the images to see clearly with no WP compression.)

This looks like daylight, but it was actually taken an hour before sunrise. The snow was still falling, but due to the 30 second exposure you can’t see it.

I hope Santa was good to you this year!
