Out of creativity in Photography? Have you considered Night Photography?

Day time photography has its own creativity, but there are times that you can not find any motivation for taking artistic shots, such as overcast days.

As a photographer and artist you always looking for different opportunities to create amazing photos. As the daylight disappears, your hope for capturing the pictures vanishes too, Right?

Wrong! There is Night time photography.

Why Night Photography is different?

Photos taken at night have their own captivating aesthetic, and a sense which is quite rewarding: they recover scenes that would otherwise be left for the dark.

Night Photography has a bit of that romantic, mysterious quality; it allows you to capture a single perfect moment rarely exposed before and bring it out for the world to see.

How about night photography techniques?

Night photography base techniques are the same as day time photography, Exposure and Composition. There are few more techniques that you need to learn. ISO and White Balance are good examples. Another example is since you use long exposure at night photography, you need to turn on the Long Exposure Noise Reduction setting on your camera etc.
