I don’t have cable, so when I’m home and want to chill out by watching television, I spend a lot of time watching YouTube. Lately, though I haven’t always acted on it, I’ve drawn a lot of creative inspiration from the platform. I subscribe to a ton of photographers and filmmakers, not only because I find them educational, but I find them inspiring.
A few of the photographers I subscribe to have recently done videos about night photography. Night photos are already my favorite, even though they are really hard to make.
After watching those videos, I was inspired to give it a try myself. I drove a few miles down the road to the overpass over 295 on Brighton Ave. to see if I could get some shots during evening commute.
It went OK. It was a good learning experience and on the drive home, I got a few more ideas for different night photo sessions, so all in all, it was a win.
