I took advantage of a recent evening with weather warm enough to take the camera out to shoot for a while. San Francisco is a city of architectural angles, hills(!), and water. It’s a city which all but dares you NOT to find something interesting to shoot.
I’ve talked about it in the past (postings), my preference for the dawn, the early hours, the early light of the sun. Dawn shooting remains my favorite time to put the camera through its paces, but things are-a-changing!
Back in June, I started to experiment a bit more with evening photography. My inspiration then was another topic I’ve posted about several times- The Moon.Can’t say it was easy, the getting up at what for me were ungodly hours, but perseverance can get you places wishing won’t.
My advice to those like me who have yet to learn their camera’s full nighttime capabilities, I say try it out if shooting at night is a possibility. These days I can’t imagine not making time to occasionally use the evening for photographic experimentation. I like what I’m learning and look forward to learning even more.
