Day 11: One of These Nights

A typical weekday night. Nothing special going on, just doing laundry and chatting with one of my roomies. Until I saw the sun setting. I rushed into the condo, grabbed my Canon, and prayed that I had enough battery to try and capture the vibrant colors that I saw.

I’m sure I gave the seniors out on their patios something to talk about, as I perched up on one of my chairs’ patio to take these pictures. In an old tattered ‘Classically Trained’ shirt (with a cute picture of the iconic Nintendo controller on front) and the tiniest gray shorts that I own.

But I can’t regret it, because I got my shots!

Just look at ’em! And I realized that the darker it got – while using the flash on my camera – the BETTER the pictures came out πŸ™‚

In all the excitement I forgot that my phone was also in my pocket, and as I was hopping down – it fell out 😦

The buttons won’t work, so I took it apart and hoped for the best. Thankfully it’s okay πŸ™‚

I definitely want to try taking more pictures at night! Though this one will always be my fave.

Any tips or advice for future night photography?

Let me know in the comments below! Thanks πŸ™‚

  1. Great shot! Most important tip is to make sure you increase your FN #. Experiment with the settings. Also stability is critical at night, so a tripod or balancing your elbows is key I find. I love the night time shots that Soranny from Sory’s World takes quite often so I’d recommend learning from her πŸ˜„
