Night Vision

The night started as a light painting session but I wasn’t having much luck in that department. I was using a weak LED flashlight to paint the utility cart in the shot I posted yesterday. The light was pretty weak so it took me a while to fund the best approach. While I was ultimately happy with the shot, I considered it more of a learning experience than anything else.

Feeling somewhat deflated, I decided to turn my attention to more straightforward night photography. The light spilling into the office, the wide open third floor and this stairwell was just spectacular.

This is about a 40 second exposure shot with the 14mm lens. I boosted the color saturation and contrast in Nik Color Efex. Cropped square because I liked it better that way.

I plan to go back to light paint the Stone Mill. But next time, I’ll be better equipped.
