"Night Photography" What I enjoy about night photography the most is the solitude and lack of crowds! You can see all the sights and hear the sounds of nature without the hustle and bustle of the daily lives of people. I believe night photography has an attraction all its own. The camera sees what the human eye cannot. There’s something magical about capturing that scene after dark with only the moon and stars as your light source, or more to the point, it enhances what light is available, creating a magical connection between light and dark. It reveals a high contrast scene, the streaking lights of the stars, an abandoned ghostly-looking building, or the way the waves on the shore smooth out to a surreal painting. I guess you could say I have found my "artistic medium" in much the way as a painter finds his. Time is compressed, What's left is stillness and quiet. With our hurried lifestyles, my work is an invitation to slow down. And look.
