Lots of people ask me how I approach a night photo shoot, so I thought I'd go through the process here. The first thing I always do is scout a location during the daytime to familiarize myself with a particular location before I go back in the dark of night. If you think about it there is really no other option ... believe me, I've tried it.
Wandering about in the dark searching for an old car or tree can be a very frustrating experience.
In this post I'd like to walk you through my search and subsequent night shoot of this beautiful old stone ruin on the shores of Cairn Curran Reservoir in Central Victoria.
"The Lake House" Nikon D750 Sigma 35mm f1.4 @ f2.2 10 second exposure ISO 2500
My intent is to inspire you to look up and see the beauty of the night sky.
