Holding my breath…

Low light photography pushes limits. It pushes the limits of technique, demanding constant attention to steadying the camera, subject movement, and changing camera settings to suit the conditions.

In one important sense, low light photography is not just another situation, or just another themed area of photography. It carries with it a challenge; that in order to work in these lighting conditions you are forfeiting predictability.

Intentional camera movement.

  1. Hi, Nicole. I enjoyed your post very much–both the images and the text! I’ll take a look at the book you quoted. I love your light painting images and the movement ones. Just great. I’ll have to try those techniques.
