Low light... no light

09th November 2011
The ups and downs of night time photography !
We'd planned on doing a re-shoot of one of the calendar shots... the New Year one on the High Street, with the girls all wrapped up in tartan coats and the Town Clock in the background... BUT...

During the restoration of the building, the outside lights have been removed. None of us noticed until we went out to shoot the picture :/
The girls spent about an hour getting ready too... ooops. So I grabbed a shot for their efforts and we wrapped up - without the shot we wanted... not enough ambient light.

On another note though, I've had a few successful nights doing landscape work under the strong moonlight this week... my favourite being the one below... showing the Bridge to Nowhere, Bass Rock, North Berwick Law and the Plough (in the stars).
It's weird doing this kind of picture as when I'm standing there for a very long time in complete darkness.. I can't see a thing... but give the camera long enough, and the moonlight will light up the surroundings quite well.

This picture could well have come straight out the camera like this, but I DO like to add a touch of glow to landscape images, so I gave it a wee one. Other than that, a very simple image to capture.

So, it's back to wedding work from Friday. A consultation in Cat's Row studios for a wedding next week, and also a pre-wedding shoot in Edinburgh. Followed by Julie & Bruce's wedding on Saturday. Happy days :)
